Question on another Forum.

Postby boofredlay » Fri Nov 30, 2007 4:14 am

On an Autocad forum I visit now and then there was this question:
Was wondering if there was someway I could import the basic shapes (everything can be treated as cuboid) from the dimensions in cm into the component library from a list (say in excel or something) without physically having to draw them?

I told him no but thought I would ask here as well. If maybe a Ruby had been created or not?

I have written a couple custom scripts in this area, so yes, it can be done. Pretty much any shape can be drawn like this and brought in to SketchUp in an automated fashion. One script was just that - being in cubes and cylinders that were used to represent other entities. The initial "massing" was done with the script I wrote.

They were custom scripts. So, no, I can't point you to them. They are not for public consumption. You can point the guy to Smustard.com
contact page though!
