[Plugin] Import ALL from Folder

Re: [Plugin] Import ALL from Folder

I installed successfully to Sketchup Make Version 16, 32 bit on Windows PC running Windows 7.
Imported 4 small .DAE files and report says successful. However, nothing shows up on screen.
These files load fine when using the "File, Import" dialog in Sketchup, one at a time.
In "File, Import" dialog you have to place imported DAE file manually. Plug in does not ask. I always insert at origin of the model, so that would be fine. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks! Fred

Hi @TIG,

I'm working on modeling a bunch of objects from photo reference. Therefore I used your plugin to mass import image files.

They come in nicely arranged next to each other - unfortunately they're all in random order..??

Their original filename is DSC_XXX, I tried batch renaming it to incremental numbers but that didnt solve it.

Any idea how to solve this?

Many thanks as usual :D Niko

If you want to import the file types in alphanumeric order, then sort the list as follows.
Edit the file [../Plugins/import_from_folder.rb] using a plain-text editor like Notepad++ [or TextWrangler on MAC].

At line #124
list.each_with_index{|f, ix|...
change it to read
list.sort.each_with_index{|f, ix|...
then save and close.
Now restart SketchUp...

Hi all, I have posted a companion plugin for Blender, which enables you to bulk export Collada files from Blender (which is very good at importing STL). Hope it helps someone.

Unfortunately SKP imports default to 0,0,0 - unless it's done manually - when you can choose a location.
However, if a SKP is geo-located, then importing it [e.g. manually] can force it to its geo-located point ??
I can't see how we need to automate that...
:shock:

just recently it was possible to make this with the KMZ files
as soon as geo-located model or Geo-Location itself is in SketchUp scene - on the import KMZ files placing each in just exact location

Sorry, but your post is unclear.
Is it a question or a statement of fact ??

Please explain...

just checked again - it also works with the SKP files (with geo-located ones)

1. fist we need to add as many location tiles as we need - File - Geo-Location - Add Location
2. after that all geo-located SKP files automatically importing on its location - no need to move it


here is a quick test - 3 random buildings in the Austin, TX downtown

i have a problem on saving the files separately. when i choose to save as a local location the file name will be change as the extension file, just like the image below.

i usually use this plug in for furniture 3D DWG to SKP format.

i think the problem is when i import 3d model to skp it is already component.

Hopefully this helps someone.

I have been using this module for years, and have recently been getting really frustrated with the module crashing after apparently importing all the files.

Today was the last straw, after manually importing over 120 components, Sketchup crashed. Then the same again when I tried a second time.

This is it. This module *NEEDS* to be fixed - so I debugged it.

The line that is causing my system to crash is this:

[183] model.active_view.refresh

Comment this line out (#) and then the module works fine.

Hopefully this helps some one out there, or if a mod could update the ruby script (no update since 2015).
