So I use UTF-8 without BOM.If there is problem,please tell me.


I have also gotten problems when I have tried to save .rb files as UTF-8.
But your HTML files and translation files should be saved as UTF-8.

Hm. Updated to the latest (1.3k) version and no fur is made on my system.

Thom, you use comma as a decimal separator, don't you? How does the plugin work on your system; on mine it's loaded with dots and if I leave it like this, no fur is generated but if I change it to comma (as my system would use) there's no fur either.

And yes, tak2hata, congrats to the SkecthUpdate Blog (and of course, thanks again for the plugin)

That's an encoding type to make sure different non-English characters "render" correctly. Like áíűőüöúóé for my language.

The file is already encoded in UTF-8 (without BOM) so I guess you should do nothing really. Also, this should not affect the functioning of the plugin - only the appearance of these foreign characters in the webdialog.

Hi,

V1.3k not working here too. This is a variable type conversion error:
line 1443: Error: #<ArgumentError: Cannot convert "0.2" to Length>

@ tak2hata:
the variable tstr is a string to be converted to a float, and if the decimal separator (in your windows settings I guess) is a dot, it doesn't work.
Try: "0.2".to_l in the console, and you'll get: Error: Cannot convert "0.2" to Length>
Try: "0,2".to_l and you'll get 7.8740157480315 (inches)
Try: "0.2".to_f.to_l and it works, but returns 0.2 (inches) which is false.(0.2m != 0.2inch of course)
Try: "0.2".to_f.m, it works and you'll get 7.8740157480315 (inches)

Hope this helps,

Re: [Plugin] Make Fur (Updated - v.1.3L May 29, 2010 9:52 pm

Postby tak2hata » Sat May 29, 2010 2:00 pm

I update to verison1.3L.
Sorry, in previous version,I change the value converting method.
I want to fix the problem that "-50mm".to_l.to_s turn to "~ -0'" , when sketchup units setting is "Feets",etc.
Problem in previous version caused to that.
I returned it to older version.

I think that it moves perhaps.
Thanks.

Hi,

V1.3L not working either: no error message, no fur, nothing happens :shock:

EDIT: it works if I switch the model units to inches. There's definitely something wrong with unit management.

Doesn't work if I set "root width" to "0,5" but works with "1,1", same goes with "length" parameter, so I think that
the problem that "-50mm".to_l.to_s turn to "~ -0'"
is not fixed yet.

Glad you like it... I do too! :)

No. I deleted nothing.
There are 12 new leaves we made (free) for licensed users of Twilight... available here.... along with a video tutorial and the practice scene.

Twilight Render also has no problems exporting these 2400 leaf instances in this image (took about 1sec. to process the file) and they render perfectly.

The "secret" to not overlapping is that the leaf component is made to be at approx. 15 degree angle away from the face, the way they grow.

But yes, the sizes and angle should perhaps be "jittered" or "changed" a bit more... it was just a quick test. ;)

Hi,all.
I update to verison1.3m.
It changes LengthPrecision temporary.
So using units "m" has no problem , now.(perhaps).

Thanks.

Hi, I'm new to Sketchup and about to climb the learning curve.
I saw the Fur plugin and thought it would be a cool additon to Sketchup. I clicked on the link to download it but all that does is refresh the page. It doesn't download anything. Am I missing something here? Thanks.Gary

Hello Tak2hata.
I have spoken these days about the plugin, which is one of the best I've seen so far for our dear SketchUp.

Is there a way the dialog can remember it's position on the screen? I always expect it to reopen where I put it the previous time. :)

Any chance this feature soon?

Hi,all.
I updated this plugin to version1.3i.

Webdialog sees easier.(Thanks Diego.)
Parameter name translates by langage text file.

Thanks.

If you wish, I can provide the translation from Portuguese languaje from Make Fur

thank you so much, I already love this Plugin!

some question:
- what´s the "Valid Distance" for?
if I choose "make by Component: no"
and enter something different than 0,000m it´s not working.
if I choose "make by Component: yes"
it´s working, but seems to have no effect.
- Also, if I select "make by Component: yes" the results are looking quite different from when I select no". for example: the force values seem to have stronger impact on component:yes.

The Valid Distance is validate fur about distance from camera.
So This value is large.like 20m.
But 0 make all valid.it do not omits fur.
Example.Use valid distance = 8000mm.

Hi,paulower.
Sorry ,Now I examines the method to remember dialog position.
That demands the javascript knowledge from me.
I will update few day later.

Thanks.

Dear Mr. Paulo Wer:

That is some fantastically lush and beautiful grass you have created! What is the probability that you would like to share your technique and component/material with the fur-worshipping masses?

thanks tak2hata for the quick explanation,

wow, that´s also an powerful feature.
sadly it´s not working if I choose "make by component - yes"!
also, with component activated, the reaction to the force settings are quite unexpected?
fur_force.jpg

I need the components for instancing -> rendering.

again, Thank You for your time and effort

As a user of Sketchup from its inception all i can say is WOW! about this plug-in. I gotta quick question though...Is there any easy way to hide all the linework on the blades of grass in sketchup with out rendering and without turning off all linework in the model? When you get alot it all turns black due to the linework. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
