[Plugin] Grow

Re: [Plugin] Grow v2.1

Postby brookefox » Thu May 17, 2012 6:06 pm

I'm a new 'grow' user and am confronted with immediate splats after after processing. Knowing how diligent TIG is about resolving issues, I don't doubt the problem is a conflict with one of the plugs I've recently installed. Prior to uninstalling them in batches to try to isolate the culprit, I thought I'd ask if there anyone had problems but did not mention them. I get no results searching splats here.

Thanks.

EDIT: Whatever the problem was, it has gone away.

Here's a minor update viewtopic.php?p=324331#p324331
v2.2 avoids a clash with some rogue scripts' messing with base classes/methods for selection/group and/or miscast observers, that a very few users had reported recently.
Now fixed for all [I hope!]...

Hi TIG :) this looks like a very interesting plugin but when i try to use it i get this on the ruby console:
for nil:NilClass>
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins/Grow.rb:339:in `move'
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins/Grow.rb:336:in `each'
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins/Grow.rb:336:in `move'
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins/Grow.rb:554:in `run'
C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins/Grow.rb:86:in `onLButtonDown'

¿Am i missing something?

I suspect that you have some rogue script installed that is beyond this last fix... I'll look at an update... :roll:

Here's v2.3 viewtopic.php?p=324331#p324331
I hope that it finally addresses all of the issues cause by 3rd party rogue scripts that ill-advisedly overwrite base class/methods and/or with miscast observers for groups/selections...

Sorry for today's confusion...
The tool only failed for a few users who had this 3rd party script combo... BUT now ALL should work OK... :?

Instant Bugsplat
HI TIG

I downloaded the latest version of grow but I'm still having instant bugsplats. No error messages.

I used a simple box, and don't have SketchyPhysics installed...

Joel

If you have the Ruby Console open before you use it are there any messages ?

Do you have DrivingDimensions, SunStudy, Matchbox, Podium installed - these can have similar issues as SketchyPhysica and break standard methods...

Can you post the simple SKP that fails for you, with instructions on what you do to get a 'fail'...

Hi Tig,
I just tried your plugin. very cool. However, it seems like I can't get it to do what I want. I want to offset a component by a fixed amount (this works fine) and have each element be a fixed amount taller (e.g. 6"). I only seem to get a fixed increment with a scaling factor of 1.0 and then the increment in height is equal to the height of the component.
Can I accomplish what I want with your plugin?

Normally you can take any value on each axis, by move, by size, by rotation!

Make sure that your axes are reset to the default model-axes [right-click on an axis and choose reset if available].
It'd be sensible to locate the objects you want to 'grow' around the model's origin, then when prompted just snap to the origin [where the axes meet].
The XYZ [RGB] axes are what's used by the tool.

Also ensure that unit-snapping is OFF in Model Info > Units.
