Is this plugin only for wireframe models, or can one use it to colour the edges of models with faces? There is an icon in the toolbar which appears to be unused at the moment (multi-coloured checkerboard face). What does this do?
The functionality offered by the plugin is very interesting, but where might one use it? Am I being dense?
Sorry if I dont understand everything I am a Frenchy and it is a real handicap I am newbie with English and ruby
In response to your comments :
About protractor, the difficulty is the accuracy with the mouse to find the right angle with inference no problem. But I'll try. Colorize only corners no problem, it’s fairly easy and it's a good idea
What do you mean to colour by profile ? I see you using Mac, so no problem with the plugin apparently?
no problem for use on the edges of a face. The only restriction is if you do a push pull on the face, must be weld segments and after dotted repeat The last icon is just for information, it is the color chart
I posted a "lite" version with only 8 basic colors
I trick for color by profile. Not very smooth, but if you have to tools it works nice.
- Work as normal in SketchUp - Drop views into Layout - Export from Layout as vector PDF - Import into Adobe Illustrator - Select "Final all lines with same width" - You can now isolate them and color or alter as desired
note: If you have depth cue turned on in SketchUp this won't work as line widths will not all be the same.
