Hi:
I tried to use DrawHelix14 last night in SU7 and on opening the program I got a load error.
Text file copy of the error message:

I probably did something wrong. I do have version 1.3

When you go to download the file, right-click the link and select Save As, or Save Target As.

The file you posted in the error is an html page - probably has the script embedded in it somewhere, but your browser doesn't know what to do with .rb files.

Thanks Jim for your quick reply.
That is what I thought. As many plugins as I have downloaded and given others the same advice as yours, you'd think I would know better.
I think I am divesting myself of good sense daily.

Well, Jim:
I don't know why but I keep getting the HTML file, even on this work computer. Same browser, though--Firefox. I will keep trying.

I've tried using a resulting helix as a path for follow me.
I get an error box indicating "This does not appear to be a valid path."
I've tried exploding the curve and using Weld on it. That didn't change anything. Same error.

Any suggestions, or maybe it's just not intended for this application?

Jay, I can't say I've seen that with helices I drawn with version 1.3 but I have seen the message on occasion. In most cases, Follow Me runs anyway. Can you get it to go even with the message?

Pardon the ridiculously long delay in answering. Unemployment can do that to you. Still unemployed, but figured I might have a chance to do something for profit if I were to keep my sketchup going.

Anyway, it works now, after an unrelated reload of my OS along with the attendant reloading of all my apps and plugins.

I had a couple problems downloading this and I think it is just the *.rb extension in Firefox first - it tries to download it as a Firefox RB file so they appraently use that extension. When I tried Chrome using the forum link http://sites.google.com/site/jimfoltz/s ... helix14.rb I got a 'no such file found.' When I tried to paste the url I came to a 'Page Not Found' page but it gave me a https link to 'similar files' and this link finally worked https://sites.google.com/site/jimfoltz/ ... helix14.rb

Anyway just what I needed. :)

Did you try (right click and save as) as it says next to the download link.

Yes with Firefox if I saved as 'Firefox RB" or choose "ALL Files" and saved as rb it it generated what looked like HTML errors and I changed the extension and looked at the contents and indeed it was an xhtml page.

With Chrome it kept generating "No file" errors with right-click save as but as I said the https:// link did work - the original was an http:// link.

Not sure if it is something peculiar to my setup but that's what happens.


Correction: If I click on the link rather than 'Save As" and go to the page I can then download the file correctly. So maybe the problem I am having is with this site. I use OpenDNS at home and work and also have some AV and NoScript plugin. Perhaps one of them is to blame?
