[Plugin] ClothWorks v1.7.0 - 19 July 2019

Re: [Plugin] ClothWorks v1.5.2 - 18 Dec 2018

Postby Edson » Thu Jun 27, 2019 12:24 pm

I wonder if you could help me with a problem I am having. Clothworks is running very slowly and I do not know what to change for it to behave as one sees in the tutorials. Both Outliner and Components dialogues are closed.

By the way, I am trying to create a curtain.

I am attaching a pair of screenshots of the UI for you to see the parameters I have set.

I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

Edson,

Try reducing thickness, to 2 mm. This may improve performance. When simulating curtains, you need to apply an equilateral grid and have self-collision turned on.

Also, it looks like gravity is too high. Same could apply to viscosity.

I will create a tutorial for curtains with never CW upon releasing the next version.

Thanks, Anton. All of it helps but I still wish it would move a little faster. Which is the property that controls it?

Best regards.

hola efrey,
si no escribes en inglés no te van a contestar. son pocos los que hablan castellano en este forum y es cierto que los que lo dirigen no lo hacen. creo que anton tampoco lo hablará.
saludos.

Edson, you may be experiencing a performance issue, which can't be fixed due to the limitation of the plugin itself. If you send me private message of your model, I will take a look and see if anything could be done to improve performance.

Equilateral and quadrilateral grids work without licensing. The adjustable grid only works with licensing. If you desire to use equilateral grid, you do not need to license the plugin.

Anton_S wrote:@jo-ke Did you use the extension manager to install ClothWorks? If not, install ClothWorks RBZ via the Extension Manager (and also SketchUcationTools if desired for licensing):
  1. Open SketchUp 2019
  2. Select (Menu) Window -> Extension Manager
  3. Click Install Extension button
  4. Select the downloaded RBZ file
  5. Restart SketchUp

Let me know if this works.


Still not able to reinstall.

Installing via Scetchucationtool I am getting the error: "UnZIP error: Could not unzip archive"

Strange...

Now I used a different library to save the extension.

I relicensed the product and it worked well.

After restarting SU everything disappered. :-(

What did I wrong?

This sounds like a problem typical of incorrect installation of SketchUp. When you installed SketchUp 2018 (I assume that's the version you are using as indicated in your profile), did you right click on the downloaded installer file and select Run as administrator from the context menu?

So does that mean that you did not install SketchUp 2019 by right clicking and selecting Run as administrator? If you didn't, close SketchUp and repair the installation. Find the downloaded installer file, right click on it. Choose Run as administrator and when presented with the options, select Repair.

Does this occur to all your plugins or just ClothWorks?

What exactly does "dissappeared" mean? Is it only that the toolbar doesn't show? Does it show in the Extensions menu? Does it show in Extension Manager? If it does, does it show as Enabled?

@jo-ke In your second screenshot, you have ams_ClothWorks at line 2. I am totally not sure where that is coming from.

Paste the following into your file explorer address bar and send a screenshot of the plugins: %appdata%\sketchup\SketchUp 2019\SketchUp\Plugins

Then navigate into the ams_ClothWorks folder (if any) and send a screenshot.

Then, paste the following into your file explorer, and send a screenshot, if the Plugins folder exists:
C:\ProgramData\SketchUp\SketchUp 2019\SketchUp\Plugins

As you can see, you have the same plugin installed in both locations. Delete the plugin from one of the installed locations. To delete the plugin, delete ams_ClothWorks folder and ams_ClothWorks.rb file from either program data or roaming. I see that the one located in roaming is newer.

Thats it!

I deleted all folders in both directories and the rb files and reinstalled the plugin.

restarted su and: it was still there!

This begs the question, how did you install Clothworks in the first place? With the normal installation methods, you shouldn't have been able to get it installed in the two directories. It should have only been installed in User/App Data/Roaming...

Re: [Plugin] ClothWorks v1.7.0 - 19 July 2019

Postby Anton_S » Fri Jul 19, 2019 9:39 am

Announcing version 1.7.0.

Changes include:
  1. Added Russian translation. Desired language is accessible from ClothWorks menu.
  2. Added thickness generator for both cloth and strings. Cloth with thickness can be subdivided and draped/undraped, just like cloth without thickness. It is, however, not recommended to simulate cloth after generated thickness. Generating thikness, just like applying loop subdivision or laplacian smoothing, is for finalizing results.
  3. Added a feature to simulate by parts. When simulation starts, objects assigned Void state subtract cloth and collider vertices overlapping their axes-aligned bounding boxes. Subtracted vertices are not included in simulation.
  4. Added an option to draw cloth using SketchUp OpenGL API. Drawing cloth rather than transforming vertices guarantees a better performance, especially when simulating by parts. If Adaptive Remeshing is turned on, mesh resolution changes are drawn dynamically. When simulation is stopped, the original mesh is transformed/generated as necessary.
  5. Reworked gizmo. The new gizmo allows for translating, rotating, converging, and diverging selected pin(s).
  6. Fixed drag for strings.
  7. Fixed freezing issue when applying loop subdivision to undraped cloth.
  8. Completed the multi-threaded solver. If multi-threaded solver is turned on, most simulation tasks are distributed across all the available CPUs.
  9. Completed adaptive remeshing. Now, both cloth and strings are both refined and coarsened. Additionally, simulation can now be stopped and resumed from an adaptively refined mesh. Note that an adaptively refined mesh cannot be recorded.
  10. Updated manual
