Did you get-and-install the TT Lib that was linked on the download page ?

TIG,
I did have a version of TT_Lib2 in the Plugins folder already, but went ahead and re-downloaded/installed per your suggestion. Seems to be working now. Thanks!

Sounds like you extracted the content of TT_Lib directly in the plugins folder istead of preserving the TT_Lib2 that contains them.

thomthom, sweet script. However i'm having problems with one of your tools.

The "Split faces into multiple pieces" doesn't seem to work properly on this face;



I can't give you the full scene though (NDA) and when I just paste this piece into a new sketchup scene your tool works. Any ideas? :)

Exploding object doesn't work either. The axis is at default place in the world at 0,0,0.

Can you save a copy of the model - erasing everything else - purge the model, then send it to me?

Hi Thomthom, today is another day, so after I turn on the computer again, it seems there is no problem on the same piece of mesh anymore. Something must've been corrected when restarting SketchUp. Perhaps I ran into a bug by somehow? But anyway, thanks for your offer to take a look. If it ever happens again, I will try and get some reproducible steps.

Thomthom,
Using this plugin again today on another very large autocad import, can't tell you how grateful I am for your plugin!

As Dave said, without knowing the error it's impossible to determine what the problem is.

If I'd hazard a guess, did you install the required TT_Lib2? Linked under Requirements right above the Download button?

This is an amazing tool. Thanks so much it's very useful. I like the concept of curve simplification.. However, forgive my out of the world request, is it also possible to have a way to make curves smoother- meaning an option to add segments rather than reduce. I know it sounds crazy but there are times when most of my CAD import are roughly segmented like the one shown on screenshot.

Thanks!

Problem here is that they are part of complex geometry. Adding more segments to that isn't easy for a computer operation to do.

Thomthom, would it be hard to refine 'divide face' to make it offset '0' from stray line laying on the face (AB in the attachment)?
Another thing: Could there be 'magneto' or double click feature (like in standard move and offset) that'd glue to the last numeric input?
Thank you.

Offset zero? I'm afraid I don't understand the request. What is the expected result?

That would be nice indeed.

Activate 'divide face' tool, put cursor above AB line segment and try to cut the face via AB. Currently you won't make it,- there's kind of bug.

Not sure I understand why it can't be done by hand...

Make a guide-line through the line AB.
Ensure nothing is selected.
Activate the Move tool.
Pick the start of the line AB and snap it to the guide's intersections with the face's edge.
Repeat for the end of the line AB.
Now line AB has extended to meet the two face-edges...
Erase the superfluous guide-line.

Alternatively draw a new line across the face from the intersections of the guide and the face's edges... erase the guide.

Because one click is nicer than many. ;)

When cleaning up plans there's often a lot of edges that need extending - and the less clicks the better.

I've been meaning to find the time to allow the Close Edge tool in Edge Tools to do this. So when it highlights an open end edge you can just click on it and have it extend - even though it would be outside the radius.

There's already my 2dTools Adjust ?
Works in any plane...
Wipe the two types of edges and - objects/targets and they adjust by extending or trimming...

Thomthom,

Since Sketchup 2013 the inspect tool in Edgetools2 has been very unstable.

Split faces is working fine, erase stray edges is perfect as ever and I can also use align vertices. However most of the time I try the inspect tool Sketchup crashes sometimes it's only when I press the circles, but it also happens just for executing the tool. The strange thing is that it actually inspects correctly but then SU stops responding.This is happening with both complex and simple models.

I have the most recent version installed and also TT Library. I erased both folders and reinstalled from Sketchucation Plugin Store.

As I don't see anyone saying the same thing I suppose it might be my problem, but would you have some kind of guidelines for figuring out what I can do?

Thanks and best regards,

EDIT: I just isolated both TTLib and Edgetools and removed every other plugin from plugins folder and it crashed again...

I've got an idea for a nice feature that could make this plugin even more powerful.
Having the option to limit the "edge gap closing" to points that are on the same Z. Any chance for that?
