I had the same Script "XXXX* is loaded but menus will show up only at next startup of Sketchup" nightmare (with all Fredo's plugins I have. Its not related to Admin rights (at least in my case). IIRC installing the latest FredoGhost helped.

In rare cases there have been reports like this that relate back to a corrupt windows-user-account...

To check this you could try making anew user-account on your computer.
Then install SketchUp for that [run-as-administrator etc].
Then install LibFredo and one of his extensions for that version of SketchUp.

Restart SketchUp and see if the issue is resolved...
If so we then need to look at ways of fixing your original windows-user-account, if possible...
If it's not working then the mystery deepens...

PS: You could also consider running a file-system check on Windows to see if it fixes anything...

Loft by spline doesn't work.

Sketchup 2021 Pro 21.1.332 64-bit
LibFredo6 12.2a - 01 Nov 21
Curviloft 1.8a - 31 Oct 18



So it always stuck on 80% or 94% step... And nothing happens.

At same time "Skinning" way is works.

"Loft by spline doesn't work."

It actually does work with the correct set up. This was done in SketchUp 2021.

Share the .skp file so we can see what you are working with.

Hi,

I've been bashing away at this for hours now, and simply can't find a solution anywhere or work this out for myself. I'm so frustrated with this I've even considered switching to Blender, but wouldn't know where to start with a shape as wonky as this.

CurviFail.PNG


The smaller (older) set of curves skin fine in Curviloft, but the others report an error. This is one of the side faces of a jewellery bail, something I've modelled using Curviloft many times over without issue. It strikes me that the curves that skin aren't as clean and smoothly defined as the new ones, but other than that I have no clue.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

Since the arc at the left end is flat, you could put in an edge to fill that face.
Then run Curviloft for the rest of it.

Your smaller one has some stray edges sticking out and there are some strays off at a long distance from the rest of the model. One of them is over 100 meters from the origin. Might want to delete those things.

Hi Dave,

I'm making resin pendants from 3D printed moulds, and the lofts are part of the bails that contain the cord. I've done hexagonal and circular previously, now I need to create one to fit the square (rotated 45°).

Hoping for some help with a project. I'm trying to make a scale aircraft nosecone. To try to match the contours precisely I've divided the nosecone into two front/back sections with four quadrants each.
Nose cone.png
I can easily skin each quadrant and this worked pretty well for the forward section. The problem is at some of the skin junctions between quadrants on the back section. With default skinning parameters I get a sharp corner transition between quadrants.
corner junction.png
When I "Swap rails and Profiles" the sharp transition goes away.
smooth junction.png
However, I now get a weird "buttcrack effect" between the left and right quadrants.
Crack.png
It's faint and does not exist across the entire length of the junction but it is there and noticeable in the model. I've made sure that the cross section contours are flat horizontal or vertical across the junctions but I still get these effects. I'm using vertex-to-vertex matching but I've tried the other options as well with minimal effect on result. Any idea on what's causing the "crack" and how to resolve it?

Many of Fredo's tools have become paid extensions which now require a license to use them.

The trial period is 30 days starting the day you install it. Not sure if there's anything Fredo6 can do about the passage of time.

You need to re-evaluate what you said. You're misinformed

I think at this point I will take it as a sign of the times and move to Blender.


Blender has a very strong commercial ecosystem too.

Postby Zampano1 » Thu Apr 28, 2022 3:02 pm

Hi Fredo6!

I am working with an old windows machine on win7 and su 2015.

Is there any download link for an older Curviloft version to work with (works with SU 2015)?

Thanks a lot :fro:

Hi

Can you please tell me how I can buy the Fredo6Bundle2022 license, and what plugins it includes?
Is this the same for a lifetime licence of 3 seats?

thanks

This I don't fully understand...

But the Bundle has 8 extensions listed in the link above. Each extension has a license for 3 seats.

Hi Fredo,

I recently purchased the whole bundle of the tools and they are amazing. I have experienced a problem with one of the tools - Curviloft - Skinning. It does not seem to produce consistent results for a simple system of edges which create a triangulated 3D surface. There are always a number of triangles which become distorted - not planar.

I wonder what I am doing wrong. Would appreciate if you can assist.

Attached is the sample file containing the edges as well as the result after the command is executed.

Looking forward from hearing from you.

Regards

First time downloading Curviloft and RoundCorner and it says license is expired. Never used the extension before. We suppose to get the trial for 30 days right? Rather no need to mention free trial if there's no intention to give free trial.

Did you download and install the required Sketchucation Extension Store tool before downloading Curviloft and RoundCorner and then use it to install the extensions?
