MoveAlignMe (MAM) performs the move and alignment objects interactively. Objects can be Components, Groups, Faces (and surfaces), Edges (and curves) and Images.

It includes the two tools :
  1. Move-Pivot-Straighten, which performs a translation, folllowed by a free pivoting followed by a planar rotation
  2. Move and Glue, which automatically rotates object(s) when moved over a target face or edge, aligning their blue axis with the face normal or edge direction. It also perform gluing and cut-opening for components, and since SU2021.1, for groups and images.

The plug in ghosted me. I have tried multiple times to install, it shows in the Extension Manager but it is not listed in the Fredo6 Collection. The Ruby console is blank. I did get the message that is with this post. There have been multiple trys to get it to show, restarting Sketchup and the computer. The files that are in the AppData folder are also attached.

Fredo, thanks for the new tool! I really loved ability to put faces perpendicularly to the edges. However the new 'move inside the group with gluing and cut-opening' doesn't work for me - the cutting component does indeed get glued but stays out of hosting group. no cutting happens.

I forgot a few explanations:

Deep Gluing has to be explictely activated by Toogle SHIFT. When activated, the target faces embedded in groups or components will be highlighted in lightgreen, indicating that the object will be moved inside the target group or component and gluing / cut-opening will apply on the target face.

This is illustrated in the video below

Oh now it makes sense, thank you.
Suggestion: Could you implement (via Control key) multiple copying (one click = one copy), similarly to TT's one?
