The download link is on the first page of the thread viewtopic.php?p=252273#p252273 which is normal for most plugins...
You don't HAVE to pay to download, but if you want to make a donation feel free...

If you can't see any attachments, then it's almost certainly because you are breaking the 'Terms of Service' you agreed to when becoming a member of SCF...
SCF IS free to use [although you can choose to donate to scripters etc, and also you could pay a modest SCF Premium Membership fee and get many freebies etc... check out that link].
To fund SCF there are discreet adverts on the pages - all interesting - relating to SketchUp, CAD, Rendering, 3dPrinting etc - the revenue from these pays to keep the site running - hosting a complex site like this costs money - although moderators etc give their time freely, the Premium Members' payments and the Shop sales etc, the bulk of the money has to come from somewhere - that's the ad-revenue...
If you have an AdBlock app running on your browser it will prevent ads displaying, therefore you are depriving SCF of that revenue, and in response no attachments are shown in your browser...
It is a simple matter to adjust your AdBlock app to make exceptions for pages on sketchucation.com AND buysellads.com [our ad generator].
Once you have done that and you reload the page the ads will show and all attachments - images, videos, download links for plugins etc - will become available to you.
Rarely members have reported issues with their FireWall software doing secondary ad-blocking - in that case add another exception to that too...
Members find the ads informative and useful anyway, no one is forcing you to read them or buy anything - but having them displayed so that our advertisers can at least know you have seen their offering, is a small price to pay for all of the benefits you will get by complying with your TofS promises...

Hi, as stated in the very first post, first line, you have to put the .rb file (and not a folder) directly in the plugins folder and then restart SU.

Hey I'm new to sketchup and have been trying to get this 'axo' plug in to work. But no luck. I keep getting this from the ruby console:


Error: #<NameError: undefined local variable or method `axo3060' for main:Object>
(eval)

What is the deal I followed the directions to a -T I think?
Please help.

If you have correctly installed the .rb file into your Plugins folder you will get the commands available to you in the Ruby Console: you type axo3060 + <enter> and it runs...
So this error message suggests that you have not installed it correctly :?
To find your Plugins folder type [or copy+paste] this line + <enter> in the Ruby Console:
Sketchup.fins_support_file('Plugins')
This returns the path to the folder that ought to contain your plugin files.
It may be hidden and you'll then need to set your MAC to let you see Library folder-paths.
If it is the HD Lib path [most likely on v8] then you may need to reset its Security Permissions to Full Read & Read, so you have unlimited access to add files etc...
So, now put the .rb file in there...
OR if you get the .RBZ archived version of the script from the PluginsStore page then you can AutoInstall that using the Preferences > Extensions > Install... button...
OR if you install the 'SketchUcation Plugin Store' toolset you can search/browse through 800+ Plugins [including this one] and then AutoInstall any selected plugin from within SketchUp itself...

Hello *,

it would be very nice to get some information concerning my request to create the ""cavalier" perspective.

- Is it impossible to create this view with SU?
- Or would it be possible to extend the existing AXO-ISO Plugin from TIG?
- Or did I ask the question in the wrong section of this forum?
- Or are there any other ideas to create this special perspective?

I would appreciate any comments

Best Regards

I don't think that a Cavalier type of view is possible in SketchUp - at least not as a camera setting.
It needs to have distorted geometry, which then would only work from one vantage point...
My Plugin is therefore NOT extensible...
You can ask a question in a related plugin's thread; however, if you want wider public awareness consider starting a new thread in Plugins with a Request for something - but nothing is going to appear instantly :( ...
But if it's a "how-do-I-do-this-by-hand" then post a message in the General forum - some skilled users might not frequent the Plugins side... Someone might have a brilliant workaround that I can't envisage... :o

Hi all !
Thanks for your axoiso.rb plugin. I had a similarly need for my own video game, so i add some new functions of my own, to get the 8 isometric views from a single model.

In order to get my code functional :
1°/ first import one single model and select it.
2°/ then open ruby console. (menu > windows > ruby console)
3°/ write "middle" (to center the object to the axis origin)
4°/ then write "aff" to get all view done with correct distance & angle
5-6-7..°/ then write i1, or i2, or i3 ... or i8 and snapshot the image, to get all 8 classical isometric direction for video game.

I'm sure anyone can do better than me on this forum. This was my first contact with Ruby language.
I hope this will help someone else ... as much as the axoiso.rb had helped me.

Have a nice day !

Great plugin for my exercises about Dihedral System in the High School (I'm a Drawing Teacher), I added a menu via Camera Menu for a quick access.

Hello TIG,
first of all, I want to say this plugin is just great! I am using it every chance I get!
I just came across a bit of a problem thought, and I am asking you for help.
For my work, I often have the necessity to produce axonometric drawings with shadows.
This time I am asked to draw an axonometry from the bottom. So I thought: easy enough! I just need to rotate the model, export in 2D, rotate the canvas again, and voilà!
The problem is, my committant wants the shadows too!
However, sketchup only allows the shadows to come from the top (which is only logical), so if I rotate the model, and rotate the 2d view again, I would find my self with a picture showing shadows coming from the bottom (which is quite odd).
So, my question is, is there a way I can see my axonometry 30-60 from the bottom without having to rotate the model?
I tried using ruby console to set the view, but I really don't know what I'm doing...

Update: if I open the axo+iso.rb file with notepad I see the parameters "eye" "target" "up" for the three different options (30/60; 60/30; 45/45), how did you calculate those parameter? Is there a way a can calculate mine to put myself in the view I need?

@edoaber

I guess you simply want a negative Z for the eye, so it's then below the ground ?
So you could edit using Notepad++ the eye's Z values thus...
e.g. in line#51
eye=Geom::Point3d.new(-25.3259,-5.00502,463.851)becomes
eye=Geom::Point3d.new(-25.3259,-5.00502,-463.851)
Test it and see if that's what's expected...

PS:
The attached RB is a WIP update to v2.0.
Note how the usage has changed to TIG.axo3060 for viewing as usual from above, and TIG.axo3060(-1) for from viewing from below.
This applies to all axo/iso view changing operations.

Put the RB file into the Plugins folder to replace the original...
Restart SketchUp...
If it does what you want, then please confirm, and then I might update the PluginStore entry accordingly...

Thanks for this awesome plugin! Is there any toolbar version available? I'm used to clicking the huts in the native sketchup toolbar for ISO, Front or Top views. A toolbar will be super awesome. :thumb: :)
