Hi TIG

Sorry Tig another beginner thats having problems with House Builder plug in, Im based in the UK so we have to use the metric version, also Im using a Mac, and yes I have read the posts but to be honest its so confusing, plug and play it is not!!

I have downloaded the"Sketchup 2015 version 15.3.329", is there any way you have the current Dummed down version for idiots (me) no offence to anyone else, to get this working on my Mac, e.g. current version of House builder metric, a list of: download zipped file or not, change .rb files to .rbz it just go's on.

I would much appreciate your help

There is little difference in installing a Plugin on a PC or a MAC - at least since v8M2.
You say you have v2015, so download the metric RBZ version linked to in the first post in this thread [that's why I made it].

To install it...

Open SketchUp.
Open SketchUp [pn PC 'Window'] > Preferences > Extensions > Install... button...
Select the RBZ file you just downloaded.
Answer in the affirmative to any prompts...
The Plugin is installed.
It should now be auto-loaded and available in the Toolbar/Menu etc as explained in the usage notes...

I have two old files (Date Modified 4/12/2005) "HouseBuilder.rb" & "HouseBuilderTool.rb" with a model called garage_tour.skp file (all in same folder I've downloaded from somewhere but damned if I can remember where). I've downloaded TIG's newer version (metric) and it works fine but just wondering what to do with the old files. Are they the original .rb files for the SU8 version? Just tidying up my extension files. Pretty sure I don't need them anymore but thought it might pay to check prior to deleting.

Just opened the garage_tour.skp model & not a bad tutorial for HouseBuilder. Found out the metric version definitely has some issues. If I add a door or window the wall floor plate looses it's sides & the opening header tends to be a little long. Still, pretty handy tool. Thanks TIG for converting to metric. I suspect I installed the older files when I tried HouseBuilder early in my SU days, but got frustrated with imperial units. Gets a bit tiresome having to select the right sized timber every time but can't complain when it's free.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue with the door and window lintels and understuds being wrong?
