you could use the summary to display the data as the "component info" section is not affected.

I suggest you consider using some ruby scripts with your DCs to help with placement, multiple changes....

Hi all!
Sorry to ask for help again: I'm trying to figure out the simplest way to round a result of a formula to the closest upper value of a list with non constant intervals (e.g. 20,70,180,500)

Do you have any hints for me?

Thanks in advance as usual!

nearest
then test if input > nearest
if so find the next value

example 1: use a string of values and string functions to get the next

Hi again! I have a new question for Phil :roflmao:

I have a formula which returns a text string which may contain LUCIDO, SEMILUCIDO or OPACO.

I want another attribute to substitute in that exact string the words LUCIDO, SEMILUCIDO or OPACO with GL100, GL60 or GL25 respectively. Is there a way to do that?

Thanks in advance!

Hi again! This is slightly OffTopic but it seems I can't find out a plugin I once saw.
Say we have a DC ("wall") in a model, then we copy it 2 more times and make 3 variations in total, which will be called "wall", "wall#1" and "wall#2". Say we later delete the wall#1 instance, so we have "wall" and "wall#2".

This plugin checks the numbered instances of "wall", and renames the "wall#2" instance to "wall#1" (since "wall#1" is available again after the deletion).

Con any of you guys recall what was the name of this plugin?

Thanks in advance!

Hi again! Happy new year!
I have the need to bulk export the thumbnails of the selected components, I fiddled around in the forums and I discovered this small but effective Ruby code:

mod = Sketchup.active_model # Open model
sel = mod.selection # Current selection
path = mod.path #current path
mypath= File.join(File.dirname(path),'/') #not the model name

sel.each do |sel| # you would have to select all components in the model
compname = sel.name # each component's definition name
thumbnailname = File.join(mypath, compname + '.jpg') # as jpg
sel.definition.save_thumbnail thumbnailname
end

The only issue is that this plugin doesn't work if i have the character "|" in the component instance name. Is there a way to allow the character in the "allowed" characters? Thanks in advance!

Hi again! Is there a way, even a small oneliner ruby code, to get a dimension in SKP (Not layout) with NO leaders at all? No lines, only the number.

Thanks in advance!
