Daniel,

Thanks for this contribution. There are issues, for sure. I will have a close look.

In the meantime, it is recommended to use the method of explicitly putting small segments to indicate where to cut cell contours.

It is just a warning, but I'll fix it for the next release

It may be that your system folder is protected by some security rules preventing to create folders there by program.
So just create the folder DEFPARAM_Dir manually in the directory: /Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins and this should work.

Diego,

The two shapes in your attached file work fine by pre-selecting all contours.
But I did not find the small shapes where you seem to have troubles (the one with color edges on your picture).

For the warning in the Ruby console, do not worry. This is harmless and I have already fixed it for the next release.

Reinstall sketchup, in another partition of my hard disk and found that the problem is a file called MSVCRT-ruby18.dll

upload the file.

Thanks TIG,
So I tried it on the PC side of my MAC, and it worked just fine.
frustrated me :cry:
Strange, cause other curves were ok.

Mariocha,

I think I know what it is and why it is specific to Mac. I'll publish a fix soon with a new release.

By the way, you can adjust the density of meshing by using the Interpol and OverSampling boxes. If you deactivate both, then you get a mesh strictly built on the original contour vertices.

Help with Skinning

Postby cmeed » Wed Aug 18, 2010 9:32 am

help.
I see skinning videos posted within this thread but i can't get this shape to work. it seems so simple.....
I click contours, click space, i then repeat until all three lines are coloured and click the tick button or open space. i get a PLEASE WAIT then nothing happens.
Am I doing something wrong, is it Because i'm on a mac?

the last picture is tig's rails but i have to make a 4th rail for it to work.

Should work with the 3 curves in either Fredo's or mine. With EEbyRails Pick the curve as the profile then the 2 side rails and then re-pick the profile again as the melding-profile - it will end with a point and triangular faces opposite the profile's end, as desired...

Thank you for your speedy reply. Tig your plugin is working great (i didn't know about going back to my first curve to make three curves work, cheers)
what i'm making is a field of 800 tents - the ones you can put up in 3 seconds. So i need a way of using the contours and keeping the the polys down.
see pic tent - I used the loft by spline to get this but its not that great, Skinning didn't work.
i wanted to used fredos to get the polys down.

Reduce the number of segments in the arcs for the profiles/rails for EEbyRails with Entity Info [before scaling or making a 'non-arc'] ?

This bug, specific to Mac, has been corrected, but I did not publish the fix yet (due to work on the Loft Along Path). I'll do soon.
It was already mentioned by Mariocha (see http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=323&t=28586&start=210#p262564)

By the way, I forgot to mention that, when Skinning shapes, you can swap rails and profiles, which may be useful when the surface to generate is made from 3 contours.

Fredo, this tool is quite incredible! I just haven't had time to play with it yet but have been following with much interest!! You really have 'user operation' high on your list.


Incredibly well done!!

Re: [Plugin Beta] Curviloft 1.0c - 20 Aug 10 (Loft & Skinnin

Postby fredo6 » Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:51 pm

New Beta version of Curviloft 1.0c and LibFredo6 3.5c - 20 Aug 10
see Main Post for download

This is an interim version whose purpose is to fix some bugs signaled by users and to prepare a next release which will be more functional. Again, thanks to all users for their help and contribution.

1) Skinning: Bug on Mac preventing to Skin even simple shapes. Thanks to Mariocha and to Cmeed for signaling

2) Skinning: Pre-selection mode should work with more shapes. Thanks to Daniel S. for providing some good examples.
Skin now working.gif

3) Loft Along Path: Still not finished. At least I have tried to improve the single-contour mode (kind of Follow Me, but accepting contours even non perpendicualr to the rail).
Along one contour.gif

By the way, I noticed some differences with the native SU FollowMe tool.
