I think this function is added in one of the versions (or was that a beta? :roll: )

I whish there was an optoin to have precise skin, or smooth skin ( i mean , skin goes trough the sections , or let user to have a telorance choise ) and not going tightly trough midway section guides. or maybe like what there is in max LOFT tool , if there was a choise to choose section guides as components ,so that when the section is edited ,the skin is updated automatically.

Is there any way to skin connected lines with this? For instance, I have several "curved" triangular faces. In each case, all three sides are curves. I have to manually skin each of these triangles and it takes a while. :-(

Hmm, have a picture you could post here to show it better? There are a few scripts out there, not sure if any quite do what you have in mind though. But it mgiht help to see an example,

If it's any consolation, that is high on my list of plugins to get finished. Its not quite 1/2 way done yet, and I am not working on any intense rubies right now due to my school schedule. But maybe in a couple weeks I'll get back into that script full time. It is probably going to be built into shape bender. Only time will tell though.....

a loft tool would be really useful!

I made this quick example with Bonzai3D:

Cracks me up how you have Bonzai set up to look like SketchUp. very decieving!

There are so many ways that a loft tool could or should be implemented. The one you show there is fairly easy to code. But (for my Ruby skillz) it becomes problematic when you want it to work on various axes, with open and closed splines, and with more than just 2 splines.

All of these problems are easy to overcome - with some smart coding.

Oh, and I just realized another problem. Oh dear, that one might set me back a long time until I figure out the math behind bezier curves :)

Well, I've got about 80% of the math figured out. But thats only about 20% of the script. but here's a little video to show it in action.

There is no sound.

Yeah, me too!

It is coming along well and I put some time into it today, and got some insight into how other scripts implement lofts.

I might have a very simple prototype up and running tonight or tomorrow. Ive got it working pretty good, it just doesn't smooth from spline to spline. But its still very fun to play with.

Now, back on topic...


Darrel, One small request, can you located the latest Skin.rb file on your first post please? For some reason my skin ruby wasn't working and i had to filter through 12 pages of posts to find Version 2.5 [I assume it is the latest version...]. This is another reason why it would be handy to put the updates on your first posts, [as does Fredo, Whaat, Chris...] is that they post a compressed file named the version in questions...

Would just make things easier to find.
Thanks for a great script, BTW!!!! :bounce: :bounce:

BTW, on the Skin Files thread:
viewtopic.php?f=180&t=6912&hilit=plugin
it referes to the current version as 2.2.....
then on this thread on page 12 the current version is 2.5....

Utiler:
Best I can tell, Mr. Darrel, the author of Skin.rb hasn't been heard from since he posted the plugin. Maybe Jim, the plugin curator on this forum has contacted him.
I am wondering if someone could take up the skin plugin just to get it consistent even if it will become obsolete. Sometimes you just need a simple operation like this.
Somehow, I was able to get it and the icons. I think I did it by loading an early version, then a later version, and then going back to the early version, or some combination like that. It sets up a drop down call in the Tools menu, called D.B. Tools with a couple of extended options.

Looks like April 12th was the last time he logged on. you could try PM'ing him or sending him an email through the forum. That might make it to his home email account if you'd like,

Any possibilities to make skin.rb working inside of groups/components?
This will be very nice(i usually must copy the geometry outside of the groups and after running the skin taking it back into group or component)..

Hi All,
I'm new but i think i fixed the MacProblem with Skin.rb
Because of Sketchup V6 and V7 have no NamedOptions there was this NilObject Problem.
Here is the latest Code (2.5) with changes to the Option related Sections.
Should be also running under Windows.
Best Regards

Hi Again,

Here is the next Version. I call it -26, because it works now within Groups and Components.
This was a very minor Change frome active_model.entities to active_model.activ_entities.
Thanks to Thomas Thomassen for his clearly tt_cg2.rb

Best Regards
