Love the idea of this plugin but I'm having no success in getting it to work at all. I've followed the instruction to the letter, checked directories, updated the lib file.. but can't get it to work even with the sample files.

The error message window does not appear, is there a log file located somewhere that I could send in hope of finding the problem??

Cheers

Ewan

Open the Ruby Console.
Then try running the tool.
Report any error messages.

Also check your Plugins folder's Properties > Security permissions are set to FULL for everyone in the list [Edit + Apply/OK]
If not this might stop some log file etc getting written if you have limited rights...

Fredo, works like a champ here, installation was a tad tricky (no I don't remember what I did to make it work). After p[laying with this a few days, I ran across a issue. The terrain I have is a lake with several high hills around it, I would like to make the water one material and the hills another material, I tried a few gradients, found one close enough to work, but when rendering I cannot make the water reflective and the hills not. The system recognizes the material as one material. I tried freehanding the water areas, but who would of thought water wasn't level?. I know this is not really about this great plugin, but related. If anyone has any ideas please share them.

I'm having a problem downloading. I'm using Internet Download Manager. I never had this problem downloading plugins before. Any Ideas?

This is Amazing!!!! There have been tools that let you get to something approaching this result in the past but they have never been this streamlined and powerful. Thank you very much.

Hi Fredo, I have a couple questions\requests(?), may be you could kindly help:
How would I:
1.precisely respect given contours (see the red clouds in attachment)
2.predictably set the grid direction (could toposhaper respect the current UCS, including grid origin point would start at current x=0,y=0,z=0?)
3.is there specific reason for minimum number of 20 cells? Setting (alternatively) the grid's physical dimentions would be nice too).
Thank you in advance.

On 1), respecting contours, this is difficult and would not give smooth results. What I can maybe do is 'almost' respect 'some' contours.

On 2), it would be fairly possible to set the origin and orientation of the grid. This is just GUI to add.

on 3), you can already enter the cell dimensions. just type them as float (for current unit) or float + unit. architectural unique are accepted. This works in the VCB and in the dialog boxes. Otherwise, there is a minimum limit to the grid size, because otherwise you would not see anything.

Hi Fredo,
Tried using the plugin, it allows me to select and then quickly flashes the cleansing screen and generates a flat rectangular surface and contours as guidelines.
I have installed as instructed.
Am i missing something

The default view for the Cleansing is the map view. Are your original contours given an elevation?

The best would be to post your model

Could you open the Ruby console and report of the error message you see.
Your model seems complex and there may be some issues

Thanks very much

I have the same problem.
The rod of Topshaper tools also disappears to this level.
No message of mistake in the Ruby console.
This problem even occurs with the well stocked examples.

@chris87, @sridhar

Could check that if you type Return, you go to the next step (preview). You can also check the contextual menu.

By the way, which OS are you on?

OS :
PC windows 7 - sketchup 8 pro last version-

No action occurs with the key return
the contextual menu "toposhaper --- > generate land (square maillage)" makes the previous operation throw back only.
the toposhaper toolbar doesn't reappear.
excuse me for the bad english language (french user....)
best regards and thank you for your superb plugins...

Hi TIG, sorry for the tardy reply, I didn't get a notification of the replies on this thread..

I checked permissions on the plugin folder; all full control so no issues there.

Re-ran the plugin with the ruby script window open.. Same issue as before, this time using one of the sample files

Screen shot attached to explain.

@Ewan

Have you tried reinstalling the whole Topo'toolset AND the latest LibFredo again.
That might jolt it into submission...
First, if you did a manual install check for misplaced files in the Plugins folder.
Then reinstall the Lib, then Topo'toolset - I recommend you get/use the "SketchUcation Plugin Store" and use its 'AutoInstall' feature, this will ensure that everything is always put into the right places...

I have exactly the same problem.
All is installed correctly with the good rights and with the last libraries.
No error in the ruby console !!!!

@chris87, @ewan

It may simply be a bug.

I'll come back with some instructions in order to figure out what it could be.

What would help me is that you tell me what you see in the contextual menu when you are in this screen (a screenshot is OK).
