@ Takesh san
Did it have time-limit?

No seems to works fine even today :fro:

Sorry for the model, it's just a test :oops:

Strangely the same happened to me yesterday, just stopped working. I thought I'd forgotten how to use it but alas it was not, just stopped working.

There is a timer inside MAybe I am wrong but seems that is only if the calculate is too long for break it ;)
...
# Get the current time of day.
# set up an elapsed timer so we can calculate expected end time.
...
iteration = [iteration.abs,@total].min # make sure we don't exceed the total count or have a value < 0
pct = [1,(iteration*100)/@total].max # Calculate percentage complete.
# round up to 1% if anything less than 1%.
...
# start time, and that is the expected end time.
end_time = Time.at(((((Time.now-@time1).to_f)/pct)*100 + @time1.to_f).to_i).strftime("%H:%M:%S")
...


Maybe this makes conflict with your program?

Guys, plugin is free and open sorce. The time when you'll become surfeited with it is actually the only time limit :)
It would be absurd to add time limit to open sorce script. Obviously :) so I'll try to find out what's the problem, I mean why it refused to work at the 8 of september.

This is got to be one of the coolest plugins. It reminds of control curves on grasshopper. speaking of which i wonder when someone will make grasshopper for SU. I can always dream can't I.

Re: [Plugin] 2 Faces + Path ver. 1.3.

Postby jwlyon1 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 3:52 pm

I discovered something and I am also having some problems...

First, here's a screenshot of my experiment file, I was looking at how the different orientation of the faces affected the outcome of the process. Interesting!
2face_path_success.skp - SketchUp Pro.jpg


Now, I'm having some problems.
Fog Settings.jpg

When I try to use the 2 Faces + Path plugin, it gives me an error: It is necessary to select two faces and one path curve.

As far as I can tell, I have (1) one curve and (2) two faces selected. The curve is made with two arcs, welded together with the weld.rb.

I've also attached the skp for this file. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I forgot to add, it worked yesterday. Then today it stopped. I've reloaded the rb, but no luck. Here's a shot of it working yesterday...

All I want to be able to do is produce Reduced Pipe Elbows; have the one surface scale to other along a radius (or another user created path) in EQUAL increments.

Unless I am misusing the options all I get is a contraction of diameters along the path which eventually get smaller than the diameter of the face at the other end of the path as shown below. This is not what I was hoping for.
2 faces plus path.jpg


Perhaps this not what this script is meant for. If not, could another script be developed that does equal incremental scaling? Perhaps only two options would be necessary, one to smooth the skin or not to smooth the skin.

The below image is what I'd like a blend along path to be capable of (I manually drew the elbow).

Re: [Plugin] 2 Faces + Path ver. 1.4.

Postby simon le bon » Sun Oct 18, 2009 10:02 pm

Dear Kirill,
Thank you so much for this fantastic tool:---- which certainly needs to be studied and tamed.. :ugeek:

Cutting angles into the edges of a complex curved shape >>../" Yet we often need these kind of shapes whose section is in arithmetic progression along a path.

And the least we can say is that SketchUp is quite disarming to address this problem!"

But hopefully, we now have your 2Faces+Path to solve the problem pretty easily :thumb: :thumb:



;) simon

Hey Kiril, didn't know where to post this so that it would be easier, so i thought id post on both.
the 2 faces and path tool only works for faces along 1 path. is it possible to blend two lines (or splines) along a path ?

heres an example.

Kirill,

Thank you for this plugin. It's very useful.

I am having some problems with it, however. I've attempted to reproduce what you've shown in the last video for v1.4 with a circle, square and arc. I can get the geometry alright but I cannot get the front face color on the outside (short of opening the group, selecting the faces and reversing them the old fashioned way) nor can I get the color change from one end to the other as you did when you painted one face red.

What am I missing? I did just install version 1.4 so it should be a fresh install of the plugin.

Thanks again.

Dave

From ellipse to cross ;) (click the image)


Salut Pilou,

C'est genial ce que tu as fait.

Can you please show us how you did it? I would like to see the different shapes and the curve.

Merci beaucoup!

Have a wonderful day.

An arc, an ellipse, a cross: when the drawing is made you can turn, move, scale original generators for explore variations :thumb:

Hi, Ken.
This is an issue :( I'll try to fix it. The problem is that "Process closest distances" method works good only for faces bounded by convex polygons. You may try "Process nearest indices" shape morphing option, but it sometimes causes inside-outs.
"Process nearest indices" method does not depend on face bound topology.

BTW, if someone try to process faces with more complex topology (I mean, faces with internal holes), then plugin will also fail to make an appropriate morphing, regardless of chosen shape morphing option.
For example we have 2 faces: 1-st has circular outer loop and 3 square internal holes, 2-nd has square outer loop and 2 circular internal holes. Well... I must say, the decision what kind of morphing would be more appropriate becomes pretty unobvious ;) . But I think that such task (the above mentioned example) is very exotic one and has no practical utilization.

I think you meant to ask Kirill. He's the one who wrote the plugin.
