[Plugin] Tools On Surface - v2.4a - 01 Nov 18

Re: [Plugin] Tools On Surface - v1.5 (Refresh - 17 Sep 09)

Postby fredo6 » Thu Sep 17, 2009 10:07 pm

NEW VERSION 1.5a - 17 Sep 09
The main evolution is the addition of a Button palette for better visualizing and modifying the various options of each tool. Freehand also gets a Point & Click mode, which makes it equivalent to a Polyline On Surface, With and Without inferences (easier to draw over images).
See attachment and documentation in main post of this thread at http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=180&t=11212#p76625

ToolsOnSurface 1.5 requires to install LibFredo6 3.4 or higher.
See post at http://www.sketchucation.com/forums/scf/viewtopic.php?f=180&t=17947&p=144178#p144178 for download and installation.

Fredo

Never mind, I found it. My settings were preventing me from going back to the first page.

By the way, thank you very much.

Wow Fredo. That freehand tool looks incredible. I'm wondering if a similar algorithm could be used to automatically extract a traced cutout from a transparent .png image....by locating the pixel data. Make a rectangle, drop a .png texture on it, run the plugin and be left with a polygon the shape of the transparent image.

Sorry for the digression, just thinking of how amazing that pixel identification technique is and what other purposes it could serve.

Thanks for the update for TOS!!! :thumb: :thumb:

No clue whether this can be done (but this would be very different from Freehand). The minimum would be to be able to read a PNG encoded file. There is a Ruby library for that (RMagick by Tim Hunter) but it's probably a lot of processing.

Fredo

I believe Page 13, "Drawing without a surface" one of the following lines is incorrect.


LEFT: for vertical plane defined by Red and Blue axis
RIGTH: for vertical plane defined by Red and Blue axis - I think this should be Green and Blue axis

So thanks for the great plugin

The Any button is brilliant! Save so much precious space. :thumb:


btw, how are you drawing the icons for your viewport toolbar? most of them looks like simple line drawinsgs - but some, like the exit button looks more complicated? bitmap?

And how do you draw coloured filled areas?

to delete the old TOS_Dir_13 folder, it seems you must copy LibTraductor_20.rb from TOS_Dir_13 folder to your new TOS_Dir_15

also need to change the line TOS_Dir_13 to TOS_Dir_15 in libfredo6.rb

[require 'TOS_Dir_15/LibTraductor_20.rb' if Sketchup.find_support_file('TOS_Dir_13/LibTraductor_20.rb', "Plugins") #Compatibility]

Fredo (Thanks) will know better but this works here

Had a look and cant see anyone with similar problem. On startup I get the below dialogue box. Any ideas? Installed Fredo 3.4c and run Mac Pro.

Many thanks.

Thanks, really nice improvement :thumb:

Can't get Daniels icons to show. If I choose them from Default Parameters and ok it, nothing happens. If I open again, the tick in the box is gone.

YES, I forgot to say it.
Anyway, the folder is passive, as no loader is pointing at it.

I replaced the icons in "IMAGES_Standard" subfolder with the icons set of choice and all went ok.

I don't remember if I gave thanks to you, Fredo, but if I did, I repeat them: THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your life saving, incredible tools! :ecstatic:

A wish, though: can you make the additional TOS palette to remember its position on screen from a SU session to another?

You can specify the default position in the SeTtings dialog box of LibFredo6 (so in the Windows > LibFredo6 Settings menu).
