The problem for me when i use section plans is that there is no inference; you can not set their position precisely

for a reinforced concrete structure, it may not be important; for a steel structure it is because you might have to be more precise

is there a way to paste a section plan precisely to a point, or a line, for example?

It is only a detail compared to all the work you have already done... congratulations...

Hi,guanjin.
This plugin create section to drawing.

So the drawing of face side is not supported.

But,The door openning in center of the picture you posted weighs on my mind.

I want upload your file here.

Hi,SU Fractal.
"DrawingSection" folder will be created in the same folder with the editing sketchup model file.
Do not create new folder when it is not saved.
But section drawing is created as component definition ,too.
So looking for the component list.It will be found.

Thanks.

Very nice and thank you. However, when the section is created, the window that pops up indicates how long the process took and it says "Time Wasted". I wouldn't call it "time wasted". It's not a waste at all, but it is a time saver. :thumb: :thumb: Thank you so much.

I'm sorry tak2hata, I'm not following you. I looked inside the folder (on my hard drive) where the model is located ... is that what you mean?

Thanks.

Wow, Tak2hata This is truly an amazing plugin. I can't wait to use it. The more I see plugins like this, I keep asking the question why Revit when you can SketchUp? It's plugins like this that will make Trimble proud they are getting a program that gets cooler by each user's contribution. Autodesk could NEVER say that. Great work!

Sir Tak2hata you have contributed very useful plug-ins but this is off topic because i did find your plug-in multi export using the vidro. Could you please make a tutorial on exporting and adding material with vidro. i just don't know how to use the vidro renderer.

Hi TAK2HATA,

first of all thanks a lot for the plugin, it is very very useful. I just have a problem: if I create a section of my drawing and export it, works fine if I open the .skp file, but when I open the the .DXF one it convert it automatically from the metric system to the UK/US units. So in the end I have a drawing that is 25.4 times bigger than the original.

I am using solidedge 2D software and all the drawings I am using are in metric system

any suggestion?

thanks

Paolo

[Plugin] Create Section Drawing V1.1 Won´t Wrok? Try This.

Postby Phanga » Wed Jun 27, 2012 7:47 pm

After few searching i found how to install this plug in.

Just in case, i´ld like to share with you one thing. After i install it, it didn´t work, but i found that if you have a number of complex objects, specially with hidden informations, probably it wont give you the results you expect.
Try to clean your drawing first and try again.

It was a good way to rethink a way to make a clean project.

Have a nice day!

Hi,Paolo.
I update this plugin in Jun 28.2012.
v1.2 Improve about dxf value scaling by units in sketchup.

Export dxf as inch values when the length unit in sketchup is inch.

Hi,Phanga.
Thanks your sharing. :D

In this time,material name is used for vidro material setting.
