[Plugin] Purge All

[Plugin] Purge All

Postby jcdb » Sun Aug 03, 2008 11:29 pm

I'm looking for the Purge All script. I've used it before but I don't know where I got it from.
Smustard doesn't have it and the Ruby Library Depot is down. I've searched this forum and can't find it here either.
Does anybody have it that can post it?
Thanks.

Quick question. When you say purge all, what exactly does it purge? It just sounds a bit scary.

'Purge' is used in the sense of cleansing - purifying - getting rid of unwanted things.

It is the automated version of 'Purge Unused...' option that's available as a pop-out for individual types of things.

This script will remove from the model's data-base unused Components, Layers, Materials or Styles in any combination - allowing you to keep say Materials whilst clearing up the rest... It also reports what's been done if that option is selected. You already can globally purge-unused everything using the Model Info > Statistics dialog - but then that's everything that's unused - no choices, and you might want to keep some kinds of things...

As TIG says and Burkhard quoted you have options with the plugin. In addition, you can set a keyboard shortcut for it to make it easier to do.

Well, it might not provide any fancy effects but this is an addictive little tool.
Its amazing how much "stuff" is hiding in the background that you are unaware of.
Particulary after importing CAD drawings it removes a lot of unwanted content.
I keep wanting to run it every five minutes to see if it can remove anything else that shouldn't be there!

Thanks.

Try doing a manual purge by going to Window>Model Info>Statistics>Purge All

See if that crahes SU also.

Sounds like it's something with the model.
Have you tried importing to a new file?

I've recently had some issues with purge all and VRay 1.05. Basically the purge all removes some relinked Jpeg texture overides (they remain in the Sketchup Model but just doesn't render). Can be fixed easily be relinking the image. Is there a way around this? Or should I create SKMs manually for all the new textures I use?

I don't understand.

What I mean is. When you are unsatisfied with a defaul sketchup texture (.skm) what we do is relink it to a new texture.
If you rename the relinked file and right click on it and do a save-as, you can save it as a .skm file in your default sketchup material library.

Dear TIG,

This plugin would be even better with two icons: Purge All (no choice) and Purge Selected (with the dialogue box and choices).

Is this something that you could add to your long to-do list?

Best wishes,
Bob

Dear TIG,

Would it be possible for the 'report' to list what it has purged? At the moment it simply tells you how many of each type it has purged (6 components, 2 layers etc), but not what. I would find that option really useful when working on large models

Kind regards,
Bob

It would have to be into some 'log' file with the model - say log='Model-Purgelog.txt' which auto opens if you have 'Report' set. [That could extend to No|Yes|Log ]. It WOULD take more time as it needs to make a lists for each type purged - e.g. for components defsIN=model.definitions.to_a and then after the purge defsOUT=model.definitions.to_a, then find what's 'gone'defsGONE=defsIN-defsOUT, then find their names and add them to the 'log' with defsGONE.each{|d|file.puts(d.name)}... I'll think about it... :geek:

Re: [Plugin] Purge All v1.5 20110313

Postby TIG » Sun Mar 13, 2011 5:01 pm

Here's v1.5 viewtopic.php?p=82559#p82559
The Report option now has Yes/No/Log
If you choose 'Log' then as well as reporting the numbers purged in a dialog, it also writes a file called 'ModelName-PurgeLog.txt' into the model's folder [or 'Untitled-...' and in the 'default folder' if it's yet to be saved]: that file then auto-opens at the end - it lists the numbers AND the 'names' of each of the purged items...
All as Bob's [watkins] request ;)

Just a quick note to thank you for the additions. The plugin is now definitely the dog's love spuds (translate that into Spanish).
