Hi,
Does this tool "autoloads" when starting sU, since there is no rb file in the Plugins folder ?

Hi tak2hata, well done!!!! A good solution to an age old issue among SU'ers...

A few questions:

1. Does the 'profile' need to be a group?
2. Does the tool require a face or edges to create the hole in the resulting group? The reason why I ask is it would be good to extend this tool for edges to cut holes in groups [walls]. Say a window component is inserted; a nested group of edges could create the void in the wall and leave the window geometry.... not sure if this is possible.

Hi utiler.
Your second question is the direction of the this plugin's future.
1st question is No.
It need only face for hole.

Thanks

Tak2hata, another question:

When you create the whole in the solid it appear to expolde the profile shape; eg: circle / polygon.... Can you force the resulting edges to be hidden?

Hi. I just tried to extract with Winzip eval version and got this in error output:
>>Extracting file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Sketchup 7\Plugins\HoleOnSolidTool_v1_01.zip
Extracting to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Sketchup 7\Plugins\"
Use Path: yes Overlay Files: no
Unable to process "HoleOnSolidTool_v1_01\".
Severe Error: Not permitted or able to create an output directory.<<

Anyone have any ideas on this? Perhaps 7zip? Note that I am placing this in x86 where my Sketchup 7 version resides. Is this tool only for Sketchup 8?

So this plugin only works with the "Pro" version? The free version does not have solids so I am unable to use it :(

Thanks for the great plugin even though I am unable to use it.

How did you come to that conclusion? Looking through the thread it appears that other users of the free version of SketchUp have been using the plugin. The free version of SU doesn't have the Solid Tools but it still identifies solid groups and components.

I tried the plugin with groups and components and it would not pick the solid feature. So I assumed it only worked with the pro solids.

Certainly. When I get home this evening I'll post an skp file. Any and all help is appreciated :)


Edit:
I figured out what I was doing wrong :)
You have to have the profile lined up with the solid in order for it to work. I had my profile off to the side. My mistake, sorry.

Gorgeous plugin.

As a followup on my previous comment, I did manage to extract and copy drag from the Winzip UI into the plugins folder the two files .rb and icon. When I tested in Sketchup 7, selection would not progress beyond the prompt for the first object/ group which was simply a cubic form made into a group and a circle oriented appropriately. Previously, in XP, I could right click on the zip file already in place in the plugins folder, "extract to here" and see the files deployed appropriately. Any thoughts on what I have managed to miss in the provided info?

Hi mitcorb.
This plugin use property of volume.
Sketchup supports solid in later version of 8.
As matter of fact,I think this script may work ,when it judges the Group(Component) is solid.
I must create the method of that judgment for that purpose.
I inquire later.

Thanks.

Hi,tak2hata:
Here is the Ruby Console error message:

Error: #<NoMethodError: undefined method `volume' for #<Sketchup::Group:0xa789048>>
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google Sketchup 7/Plugins/create_hole_on_solid.rb:298:in `onLButtonDown'
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google Sketchup 7/Plugins/create_hole_on_solid.rb:298

I see your demo suggests that only available in Sketchup version 8 by the fact that the default component in the demo is Susan. Yet your user profile says you use Vista and Sketchup V7. Perhaps in your first post, mention that this is for V8 only?

I'm guessing you are not using SketchUp 8 - group.volume is a method available since SU8 when SU introduced solids.
