Best high precision 3D scale and move tool yet.

With Features:
ScaleGroupMove (re-sizes, scales, moves and set units) non cumulative
CumulativeScaler (steps, moves, scale and rotates) cumulative 3D offset dolling
Save location of a c-point (save target)
Move to a save location c-point (move to target)(move and size to target)(move to object vector corner) (a line to object -at origin axis)
Readout (Size,c-points, SF)
boxPoint-drops small boxes as points (w,d,h)
undoTool (resets, undos and redos)
Gives fast alignment, of any local axes to origin axes
Makes 3d shell thickness to any object.
Draws vector and cpoint points of any group objects.
Flatten objects in any directions
With cumulativeScaler_dj you can step thing to make Spiral stairs , stairs cases

Scale:
Group Float Scaling tool scale objects, along XYZ axes.
Drop down menu's for quick and easy use of X, Y, Z, XYZ

Scale factor:
Group object units range 1.0e-16 to 10e+16 m by ruby float
Object Scale factor unit to 1.0e-99 to 1.0e+99 m

Bounding Box meathod:[magnitude of length]
You can enter or read the magnitude values a group object

New read out: Format is now standard: magnitude unit
You can copy and pin information to document
Ratio factor to a standard scale factor

pic_0013.jpg


Readout
Size format = [magnitude of length] [Unit]
center points =(x,y,z)
SF = value ratio



Units: (Imperial units and International metric units.)
["thou|in|ft|cubit|yd|rod|furlong|mi|Ym|Zm|Em|Pm|Tm|Gm|Mm|km|hm|dam|
m|dm|cm|mm|um|nm|Angstrom|pm|am|fm|zm|ym|x?|quintillionth|y?|planckto"]

pic_0021.jpg

scaleGroupFloat tool re-sizes to a group object SF scale or enter units.
Sketchup scale tool re-sizes to a open model scale units.
If you set SF=1, scaleGroupFloat units to Sketchup units respectively then is gives higher precision then sketchup model will do.


Vector center:
This will moves the group object to [x.y,z]



Extended options:
["Show Bbox,Center,SF|Show Bbox,Center|Show Bbox|Show Center|Show SF|ShowBlank|Small format|Large format|no read format|no|Long read out|SnapLowPrecision|SnapHighPrecision|Draw vector|Draw cpoint|no|Move to target1|Move to target1 corner|Size as target1|Move and size to target1 |Save target1|Line up to target1 Red w-side|Line up to target1 Green d-side|Line up to target1 Blue h-side|no|Move to target2|Move to target2 corner|Size as target2|Move and size to target2 |Save target2|Line up to target2 Red w-side|Line up to target2 Green d-side|Line up to target2 Blue h-side|no|scale_dj|move_dj|resize_dj|cumulativeScaler_dj|keyboardScaleGroupFloat_dj|extended_options_dj|scaleMoveResize_dj"]#


Draws vector and cpoint


Bbox,Center,SF pins values to a object such as dimension w_d_h, center x_y_z and scale factor,


pic_0020.jpg


Order of process:
1) scale, units, magnitude and move read out is non sequentially cycle and can be cycle any time together.

Freely use, and abuse at your own risk. Fitness of usage is not warranty implied.

Only one Warning:
Do not fully bomb or explode groups objects below 1.0e-o4 in size, the objects will disappear. to recover hit undo to make a groups object to reappear in the outliner.

Thank you, have fun.

I found this problem by nickchun
Stuck already!
by nickchun on Thu May 17, 2012 7:35 am

Hi,
I have just started to build a DC for a cupboard which seems to have gone well until I tried to add some component options. I added the option to change the width of the cupboard but the units do not add up. The width should be 700mm but the actual size is coming out at 201.7mm? LenY and LenZ are also wrong.
I can't make any sense of the sizes in terms of any possible metric to imperial conversions.
Can anyone help?
Thanks


I used the calulator for finding scale factor ratio.... then I resized his cupboard.... then I was done

What can you do with this.
Scale and move group 3d entities:
A Example:
I download two things from google warehouse

A boy with his toy,

pic_0129.jpg

And a full size car

pic_0131.jpg

I rescaled the car and moved its [x,y,z]

Now I have a boy with his toys

pic_0133.jpg

Anything large can be made smaller to a size of a atom, or a atom resized to a moon.

A [x,y,z] mover;

Group Entity Translational moves can move to origin or any other [x,y,z] vector location

How its done in one simple steps.
- select, Enter x_y_z axes points and hit Enter


You shold be able to move anything, anywhere, very easily. :thumb:

Just thought I write and say thank you for all your hard work. I cannot see an immediate use for your plugin, but I'm sure that it will be useful to many. What prompted you to write the plugin in the first place?

Regards,
Bob

Here's an immediate uses condiction
The easiest way to say this:
If your are a Manufacture Engineer and a customer came to you with a part block that measured 0.024 in size and is mil to 10000 of a in. and he tell you that he want the same standards to the part your going to make him. And he want you to do this on the fly... and your are new to this company... and not trained to use their cad system... and your job will be on the line. You need to fine the points centers to set up the laser to cut the tool out. So you reach the easy to use google sketchup and it can't help either...because the block dimension are to small...to the fining of laser block centers :berserk: Help! well who need this job any way.
Results:
Google sketchup way 0.024000 - sad, no job
Plugin scaleGroupFloat way 0.02400001 *1.0_in - happiness, job done, no job lost

pic_0148.jpg


Now the resons why I wrote this scaleGroupFloat 3d scale resizer:
After reading some one hundred fifthy reseason on why Sketchup is Inacurrate???
I dicided to fix some of them

Inacurrate???
by seasdes on Thu Mar 22, 2012 11:48 pm
"There are posts scattered post throughout the net stating that Sketchup is innacurate. Is there substance in this claim or are they talking through their ear**?"

Other reasons
-basic principles of surveying,
-mashtab 4: reads things ok but unable to resize to small units
-Is there any hope of making something visually noticeable about terrains or is it just too flat to to see

No rendering, everything is done in sketchup.
Quick work adding color to objects in your model
pic_0054.jpg

nosie, shine, color with transparency = mix block of glowing colors of light.

Extened options
Work the color blocks
save one as target
then the others use size and move to target.
:idea: each object can have its own light show. wow!

...add thickness to objects
pic_0040.jpg

...dolling objects
pic_0041.jpg


2)
- fix a better error trap
pic_0045.jpg


3)
-added update a repeat move to target auto mode
(frist pass input box then more pressing the button go to auto mode repeat)
green target

-added update use save to target to unfreeze the repeat auto modes
( this also will fix scaleGroupFloat_dj and cumulativeScaler_dj lock out by auto mode repeat)
red target
pic_0046.jpg


- added rescale to a very small one demcision (any direction local object) will be flatten to outline wire when you group explode you can then resurface by putting a line accross the retangle.

pic_0047.jpg



4)
- added the dropping of a boxPoint to a 1d line or a 2d object to make 3d groups for resizing in on the orgin axes

pic_0043.jpg




5
- added the uses of the axes tool (right click move) to rotate objects by steps of orgin
pic_0035.jpg

(works with scaleGroupFloat_dj and cumulativeScaler_dj

with cumulativeScaler_dj you can step thing to make stairs

To rotate about a edge step I used a bounding small box boxPoint by rotating upward 15x
then move a step group into bouning box set

Fast alinement of any local axes to the orgin axes

Here is a fast rotation trick for a rotated component or a group

meathod: target save and target move

step 1: Make one component unique.( right click context list for making component unique )

step 2: Press 1-time left click, the component you want to change. Save target, via scaleGroupFloat_dj (then press ok).

step 3: Press 2-times with left button this will set axes to the component and 3-times more will edit the selection of the object. Using the Move to target toolbar, via scaleGroupFloat_dj.(now press ok) This will auto aline component to orgin plain. Now select ouside of component area, now your done.

All above steps is shown here
Movie_0007.gif


Also with the axes tool you can aline any local axes side to the orgin axes

I was unable to download with IE9, I still don't know why it suddenly won't work with IE9 I tried setting my security way down. The pop up blocker was off. But at least Chrome worked.


I have been putting in some volunteer work on these plugins for the past year so they are free to down load at this forum.

viewtopic.php?f=323&t=46688
viewtopic.php?f=323&t=45254&p=404860#p404860

I have more add on update ideal's to come.
1) a new type of paste in place that will work for the Mac
2) a web inputBox for scaleGroupFloat_dj

I made more memory space available by deleting older ver this may be the problem,
also re-link the atachment to this page.

If you still have a problem please let me know.
