[Plugin] Tools On Surface - v2.3a - 06 Oct 17

Re: [Plugin] Tools On Surface - v1.3 (more shapes, inference)

large toolbars use 24 pixel icons, small 16 pixels.

but TOS does not load them automatically, so if you want small toolbars put the 16 in the folder - if large the 24

a quick way is to zip both set of icons in the TOS folder - when you want to change them just "unzip here" and overwrite all files (i use winrar).

CadFather,

First of all, thanks for your hard and impressive work on the icons and cursors. I am glad to see that this is appreciated by users.

The TOS script actually makes provision of big and small icons. The naming convention is to append '_24' or '_16' to the icon filename for big and small icons, respectively.

It is only because I am lazy that I did publish only one set (and in 32x32 by the way).

The attached archive contains your two sets of icons and cursors merged into one set, with the proper naming convention. All .png files should just be extracted and dropped in the folder TOS_Dir_13

Again, thanks very much

Fredo

Hi Fredo, i don't think this same 16/24 system applies to bezier as well - had a look at the scripts but cannot locate/attempt how to make the switch automatic..any pointers would be great..

No, Bezierspline is an old script now, but I plan to refresh it at some point in time.
This being said, it would be relatively simple to make just the modification about icons. Let me think about it.

..it would be great to have _16, _24 naming convention like TOS - but all in your own time of course ;)

CadFather,

For easier access to your set of icons and cursors, I edited the first message of this thread and attached the archive file.

Hello all, it's my first message here...

Thanks to Fredo6 for this awesome plugin, it's very useful.

I've just seen a little bug in the arc display. When you move an arc created with this plugin, the center point (displayed by a cross) doesn't move.

It would be nice to have the tangent constraint when you create an arc after an other or a line to have a continuity.

PS : sorry for my "garbage english", I do my best but...

Not really a bug actually. the script just create a construction point for the arc center for convenience (as it should maybe in native Sketchup!). But the construction point is not really part of the arc and does not keep any connection with it afterward.

Yes, that would be nice. On a Surface, it is however a little bit tricky, though probably feasible.

ZLoader__OnSurface.rb
and the folder TOS_Dir_13 which contains the scripts and the toolbar icons

Isn't this because the script needs to be activated from the Extensions..?? :?

From the menu-bar click Window > Preferences, which will open the System Preferences window...
Select Extensions and make sure the Tools on Surface is ticked... ;)

Now you shold be able to see the toolbar - that is if you've extracted the zip-file to the correct folder... ;)

I believe I have all the necessary files. I have the ZLoader__OnSurface.rb and then in the TOS_Dir_13 folder I have 73 *.png files, 9 *.rb files, 1 *.def file and 2 manuals.... I have activated the script from extensions. I get all the options from the Tools on Surface section in the Tools pulldown, its just a pain not having a toolbar


Pretty sure I have installed and followed all the instructions correctly?

By chance, can you check in the menu View>Toolbar if you have a toolbar named "Surface Operations" and if it is checked.

Yep, I have that checked.. that little 'dash thing' that shows up (as shown earlier in the image with the arrow) is what shows up when I have 'Surface Operations' checked

in these cases i move all the plugins to another folder and keep only the troubling one.

give it a try if you still have a problem, redownload the plugin and re-try. if still no good you can try re-installing SU - wouldn't kow what else..

This will come, but not before end of Sep (actually, it should do more than double, and on any contour). I did not spend a lot of time recently on Rubys, but should try to resume soon, with some work on Web dialogs as well.
I also solved the question of generating faces when drawing lines on surfaces.

Well that's strange, I'm using the tool right now to offset from a shape on a curved face. However, for some reason it thinks that the object is part of the face too, and thus is offsetting over that face. That's (obviously) not what I want...

Not sure I understand the problem.
Just in case, there is an option 'Isolate surface when extending' which is mapped on F7 and also available in the contextual menu. This allows ignoring the surrounding surface when you offset.

Thanks Fredo; I'll try that next.

I'm getting this error too. Is there anything I forgot to extract?

Error Loading File LibOnSurface.rb
uninitialized constant SUToolsOnSurface::TOS_DIRError Loading File LoaderOnSurface.rb
No such file to load -- /LibTraductor_20.rbError Loading File ShapeOnSurface.rb
uninitialized constant SUToolsOnSurface::CODE_Rectangle


[EDIT] Hmmm... didn't work. The problem is that in the last screenshot, you can see a blue line that comes through the object (default color). That's the face I want to offset. When I do so, it thinks that that object is the same as the cilinder on which I am trying to offset. This results in a few lines on the cilinder (the grey area), but then all of a sudden the lines makes a strange turn, goes over the object (the default color thing), and when it touches the grey area again, it goes back to the beginning. I want that blue lined face to extrude, not anything else :|
