[Plugin] Set North in GS6 Free version

[Plugin] Set North in GS6 Free version

Postby Didier Bur » Wed Feb 13, 2008 4:17 pm

Am I stupid or missing something ?
There's no other way to set the North in GS6_free than loading Google Earth, select the town, capture the view with GE plugin to set Lat/lon coordinates, etc, etc.

So here is a little tool to do it without Google Earth, simply enter the north angle relative to the green axis, clockwise. The script will temporarily display the current North if not displayed.
The command is in the "View" menu.

And what about the localisation?
Is it automatic from the time zone of the computer system or it's not possible on the SU6 free?

Yes you do, Jim, you rock!
Thanks to you too, Didier! (for like the 100th time...) What would we do without you?

Didier, your tool for setting custom north angle still works perfectly in SU8 free.

This doesn't really give much helpful information back to the developer. What "doesn't work"? Error message? Unexpected results from usage? Please provide more information when reporting problems - it's is impossible for us ( developers ) to guess what the issue is - could be any number of reasons.

:lol: sorry people. i was wondering.
since in the SketchUp 8 Free version it seems that the "set north angle" doesn't work.
unless i missed something there.
that's why i've been wandering around the Plugin Index. looking for something to replace that Pro feature for the Free version.
it's quite tiring now, to set latitude and longitude manually every time and then realising that you need to rotate the whole model to adjust the position for the correct illustration.

any info or hint? thank you.

[ed] thank you, andy. :thumb: no, i didn't see that. it's a link with not much of description what it was :P .. but, that's look like it. funny though i visited Jim's site for his cline before :)
erm... but Jim said there;
* This plug-in was made for SketchUp version 6 Free because it lacked the dialog (which Pro had) to change these settings. This has become obsolete since SU 7.

what's that supposed to mean? i am planning to use only SU 8 now.

I do not know about Didier's plugin (never used) but yes, Jim's plugin works in SU 8 free, too.

In SU7 free, you could set the north direction (like the plugin does,) which Google then took away in the SU8 free version... it's only available in SU8 pro

hi everyone,

i am back. Didier's and Jim's plugin both works well in SketchUp 8! :D
with Didier's "Set North" i can change the north angle orientation. and
with Jim's "Model Location" i got the full feature of geolocation :berserk:

sorry for rushing around and replying without even checking what others have to say up there. especially Jim's and Fletch's post.

you people couldn't stop to amaze me yet with this forum :D
i regret those days -erm.. years- without SketchUp 6 and this forum :P

SketchUp 8.0.4811 currently.
