[Plugin] JointPushPull Interactive - v3.3a - 19 Oct 14

Postby fredo6 » Sun Oct 27, 2013 11:36 pm



JointPushPull is a suite of extrusion tools operating on faces. Version 3.2 is a complete refresh of the old JointPushPull (v1.x and 2.x), with more interactivity and 3 new tools:

JointPushPull Summary of Tools.png


The common characteristics of JointPushPull Interactive Edition are:
  • Support Pre-selection mode, with launch from toolbar, main menu, and contextual menu
  • Interactive selection mode, where Faces can be selected across the boundaries of components and groups. Faces can then be visually dragged to desired offset
  • Thickening and classic push-pull
  • Options for borders: (Contour, grid, none)
  • Full support of Undo / Redo, via Ctrl-Z
  • Random offset for some tools and tapering for Normal and Extrude push-pull
  • Quick Launcher

Note: you can safely keep the old JointPushPull v2.0, since file names are different


JointPushPull - User Manual - English - v3.0 - 25 Oct 13.pdf

Just drop the attached PDF file into the SU Plugins directory to have it accessible from within Sketchup.

  • Sketchup: v6, v7, v8, v13 – works better with v8 M2 and above
  • Platform: Windows and Mac
  • Language: English, French, Chinese (hebeijianke), Spanish-Spain (Oxer)
  • Menus: by default, it is installed in Tools > Fredo6 Collection > JointPushPull
  • Icon toolbar: by Default ‘JointPushPull’. At first installation all 7 icons are shown (6 tools + Quick Launcher). You can then configure which icon you wish to include in the toolbar from the Default Parameters…). Big thanks to Daniel S. for the icons.

  • The plugin is free, for private and commercial usage. There is a donation menu however.



There are now multiple ways to install scripts
- SCF Plugin Store (SU8 and SU13) - recommended method
- Unzip (all SU versions and for installations in an alternate Plugins directory)
- Extension Manager with RBZ files (SU8 and SU13)

Whatever way you install, you must end up with the following footprint:
JointPushPull Footprint.png

The standard SU Plugins root directories are:
Windows SU8: C:\Program Files\Google\Google SketchUp 8\Plugins
Windows SU13: C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2013/Plugins
Windows SU14: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\SketchUp\Plugins

Mac SU8: Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 8/SketchUp/Plugins
Mac SU13: ~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2013/SketchUp/Plugins
Mac SU14: ~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2014/SketchUp/Plugins

CAUTION: NEVER rename or move files from their folders. If you are unsure of your unzip operation, do it in a neutral folder and check that you reconstruct the right footprint. Then transfer the folders and files to the SU Plugin Directory.



If you run SU8, SU13 or SU14, the strongly recommended installation method is to Autoinstall with the SCF Plugin Store tool.

Otherwise, you can download the JointPushPull rbz file from the Plugin Store page for JointPushPull.

IMPORTANT: Requires to download LibFredo6 6.3 or higher if not already installed

Note for SU6 and SU7 users, download the rbz file from the plugin store page, and change its extension from .rbz to .zip
Then:
1) Open the zip archive
2) Select All (Ctrl A)
3) Extract into the Sketchup Plugin Directory
4) Answer YES to OVERWRITE all existing files if any
5) Make sure you get the correct footprint (one rb file and one folder)


CONFLICTING PLUGINS: some plugins conflicts with some of my scripts
  • Some versions of Podium
  • SunPosition
  • Matchbox






To be completed

Is this true or what? This is an incredible extension to an already incredible plugin. I never thought it would get better than it was... and here it is!

Just when I was going to sleep you show up and make me awake just some more time...

PS: I think this deserves throwing a party. Just click around and cheers for Fredo!

I've been playing with this for a few days and it is really cool! Thank you, Fredo. I'm going to have to think up things to draw so I can use more of these features.

Pilou,

This was a special gift for you. I am sure you'll complement it with the Tapering feature to produce some inspiring modern art masterpiece.

And I am also sure that you'll ask right away for random colorization! :lol:

If you think you know those tools, you should look in the 39 pages PDF documentation and I bet you will find something new to learn 8-)

examples:
- random push pull
- tapering

Well sir, I installed your plugin for V 2013. Noticed that the icons, looked a little large. I discovered that all the png files listed as 16 x 16 were actually 24 x24. Not sure if you intended this or the sizes were not changed.

I changed all my 16 x16 listed, to actual 16 x16 from the 24 x 24, and now they look like the rest of the icon on the toolbar.

Ken,

You are right: icons are 24x24 and 32x32 for the big ones.
However, due to ancient code in LibFredo6, I had kept the old naming conventions _16 and _24 for compatibility with earlier versions of SU. I may change it to _small and _large at a later stage, but this is some work to keep compatibility.

In SU8 and earlier, the icons are: small = 16x16, large = 24x24. However, SU will anyway rescale the image whatever size it is.

In SU13, the icons are: small = 24x24, large = 32x32. SU13 does not resize the icons images.

Personally I find that bigger icons offer a better readibility while still fitting in the square allocated in the toolbar.

Currently, there's nothing I can do immediately for two reasons:
- I need to ask Daniel S. a version of the icons in 16x16
- I need to offer the option for the user to choose between small (16x16) and less small (24x24), as we'll probably find users liking one or the other option.

It wasn't a problem, I just notice the icons were larger. I have a 1920x1080 display and the icons just didn't look good. Me, I just went in and changed the size. I wasn't sure if you intended this, or you make a mistake in coping the files.

I just giving you a heads up.


Thanks for you reply and your work. Not sure where you live, but Boulder is beautiful and a great place to live, hint, hint.

There may be a problem with the = sign.
So just use : instead for the time being

Doesn't seem to work in my Windows 8.1 machine. Previous push/pull still works fine. It will highlight sections but not select more than one or if one is selected it will not extrude. Anyone else with this problem?

Hello,

i've got similar problems. No extrusion on selected faces, but the plugin works on groups/components when they are closed and so, all the faces of the group/component will be extruded and not only those who i would like to. That's a good new fonction but not in any case... ;)

Fredo ? Any help ? :mrgreen:
