[Plugin] Random Entity Generator - v1.1.8 - 02 Jan. 2020

[Plugin] Random Entity Generator - v1.1.8 - 02 Jan. 2020

Postby samuel_t » Tue Dec 03, 2019 2:52 am

Hello, I created a plugin for SketchUp that generates random entities and randomizes existing ones. It's able to create proxies for Enscape. (It's also compatible with V-Ray and Thea Render.) You can doing scattering with it. ;)

=> You can download it from the SketchUcation PluginStore.

Below, three Random Entity Generator plugin demonstrations:

Set SketchUp to show Wireframes.
Open any group or component.
Drag to select the edges and right click to hide them.
Set SketchUp to Shaded with textures.
The edges are now "gone".

With 1.0.4 version:

You can create proxies for Enscape. So, a tree becomes a forest in secs.
Proxies are symbolized by little translucent cubes with a random color:

It also works with V-Ray and potentially other renderers. :) :thumb:
Just randomize the component-proxy made with V-Ray/other...
(Right click on component-proxy then left click "Randomize...".)

@Pixero
It's that I made with "Masked them" ;)
It's curious because seems to me that was a trick for have only the "material/texture/Photo" but maybe i have dreamed! :)

Re: [Plugin] Random Entity Generator - v1.0.5 - 07 Dec. 2019

What's new in 1.0.5 version?

- There is a new param: Avoid entity collision. After 5 unsuccessful attempts, collided entity is erased.
- Enscape proxies have real dimensions based on real model. This allows a better collision detection.
- You can specify, via context menu, a spawn zone for generated objects. It is called "Random Zone":
