If you want to keep the curve in 2D, it's best if you start out by drawing it on a large rectangle. Or, you can set the camera to Parallel Projection and selected the appropriate standard view befor editing the curve. I like the large face option myself.

Or use the plugin WorkPlane.

I am using v1.9 with Sketchup Make 2017 on a Mac. Some of the curves do not allow me to edit them after being created. After selecting the curve, with a right-click I get the standard menu items and not the editing options. Some curves work and some don't. I've seen this with the Cubic Bezier Curve and Catmull Spline. It appears to have something to do with the number of control points. Simple curves and its OK. Curves with more control points and I loose the edit function. Any suggestions?

Share an example SKP file showing a curve that you can't edit.

Be careful that a contour generated by BezierSpline must remain a Sketchup Curve to be editable. If you cut it by another edge intersection or explode it, it won't remind that it was created by BezierCurve.

As Dave said, maybe it's best to post a sample model where you have the problem.

Curve on right is OK. Curve on left I can't edit. Both were made using Cubic Bezier Curve with precision set to 20.

I did some additional experiments. Drew a simple curve with Cubic Bezier Curve that I was able to edit. From there I added control points one at a time while editing. Once I got to 24 control points (not counting the two end points), I could no longer edit the curve. A right-click gave me the standard menu selections.

The attached file has two curves. The one on the right can be edited. The one on the left is a copy of the right curve, but one more control point has been added. It is no longer editable.

Thanks for signaling.
Actually, it is not related to the number of control points but to the number of edges of the curve.
For whatever reasons, there was a limitation to 500.

I will republish without the limitation.

Please, in the next release, make "Redo last change" to quickly compare changes when editing control points.

Right-click on free space in your toolbar and check if there's BezierSpline in the drop-down list. If so, check it. If not, restart SketchUp or even your computer and check again. If it still doesn't work then I don't know.

Just what I was looking for. I'm having some issues with a few of the tools. I'm in Sketchup Make 2017 and the polyline arc corners is acting odd. I click the first couple of points and then the whole line vanishes. Uniform b-spline... same. Thoughts?

Hi Fredo, thanks so much for your plugins, they are incredible.
I particularly like Bezier Spline, but I have a problem: I absolutely cannot control the "control points" when I decide to move them along the axis.
I'm working on a uniform spline, a press CTRL and then the desired arrow for the axis direction, then when I drag the point with the mouse, even a super small movement makes the point go super far. Moreover, when I move along the axis, in reality the points sticks to other points in the drawing instead of just moving along the axis. Is there any solution to this?
I hope I was clear. Thanks in advance.

Hi Fredo, thanks so much for your plugins. Without them it would be very hard.
Was the idea to reduce the Tool Bar to save space?

I just downloaded BezierSpline_v2.1a.rbz from the Plugin Store and then installed it from SU's extension manager (I have SU Make 2017 on a PC, by the way). It seems to have installed properly, but when I click on Documentation in the menu, nothing happens. So I downloaded the Quickcard and Tutorial PDFs, as well, but I don't know how to make them available from the menu (assuming they should be, of course). Are these PDFs the only documentation available, or is something missing?

This is the only doc I wrote. If you put the PDF file in the Plugins directory, then it will be available from the menu.

I placed Quickcard BezierSpline - English - v1.2.pdf and Tutorial BezierSpline - English - v1.2.pdf in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2017\SketchUp\Plugins, as you said, but still nothing happens when I click on Draw > BezierSpline curves > Documentation... .

BTW, your link to Scott Onstott's tutorial leads to a non-existent page.

Sorry, you have to put it in the bezierspline subfolder in the Sketchup Plugin directory. I forgot that bezierSpline is not based on LibFredo6

Thanks for signaling. not surprising for a site which was around more than 10 years ago. I just removed the link.

Dear Fredo,
Hello, I kindly reach you to suggest some feature for the future update of BezierSpline.

1. As you know there is a feature in Rhino software which you can change the point easily in 2D and 3D and it is Gumball. BezierSpline in the current version, you can change the point in the 2D position very quickly but when I wonder to change the point in 3D axes, I have some problem(Of course when I want to do it, I definitely push up arrow on my keyboard and also be in Front view). Therefore, I really wonder to ask you, would you add Gumball feature for next Update?

Gumball(Low).gif


 Note: This type of Gumball already exists in the Vertex Tool of @thomthom which can help properly but I thought if this feature will be developed by you in this awesome plugin then it will be more integration.

2. The next issue is when I draw a curve in 2D, it is so hard to close automatically the curve and I have to zoom in to close it or use the plugin options(close loop nicely or closed loop with the line) which almost is not so accurate or my desirable shape. would you solve this problem?
Have the best wishes to you as one of the most prominent and most successful developers.

Hamidreza

Dear Fredo,
Thank you for all of your efforts. I am looking forward to the result of this plugin which seems to be very functional. Furthermore, concerning to the first request, would you add Gumball feature in order to change the point easily in 2D and 3D for next Update or another plugin. Thanks in advance.

Yours Sincerely,
Hamidreza
