Just finished browsing thru the 87 pages. Very impressive and at $19 it's a no brainer for those that value it's toolset.

Thanks for sharing this Rocky :thumb:

To clarify, it costs $19 to upgrade (from Standard to Pro, I believe), or $39 for a Pro license by itself. Still an excellent deal!

I have upgraded to the pro version and now I get the follow loading info every time I start Sketchup. Did not have this type of start up with the older version. Anyone know what is happening. Note, Sketchup and 1001bit pro seem to work OK. I am just curious why I am getting these four screens.

Hi Ken,

I'm in the same boat. They flash up briefly then go way? Must be just part of it's process.

Do your stay visible once SU is running? Maybe email the developer?

I did email, nothing yet, so that is why I put the question here. No they do not remain visible after SU is running. Nothing seems not to be working,I just have a slow start-up.

UI upgraded this weekend- very valuable tool set made better!
I get the same screen flashes - they are just barely visable and don't seem to slow the startup significantly. It would be interesting to see why this happens. I will also e-mail GOH to compliment his work and ask why the screen flashes.

hi guys,
Sorry for the slow response to this, have been cracking my head in sorting out the paypal-ruby auto response stuffs.
(finally got it sorted out, i.e. user can now proceed to activation immediately after purchase.)
Not a lot of Ruby examples around, anyone wants to know how it's done (PayPal IPN with Ruby cgi) feel free to drop me a note. :)

Back to the black screens: :(
The Pro version activation checks for a unique key on the computer and the activation key is linked to that.
The black windows is caused by the tool identifying the unique key. They open and immediately close in split seconds on my Windows and Mac... do they stay open on your computers?
They don't really do anything, but are so not cool,.... i'll need to see how to get rid of them.(fingers crossed)

BTW, just to let everyone know that users registered as beta testers (during the period when 1001bit tools was first launched last year) can go for upgrade, no need to buy full license.

Thanks and cheers!

Goh Chun Hee, are you attending base camp? It would be a great place for you to showcase you toolset.

Hope you can make it and meet some us users.

hi guys! Thanks!
I'm afraid I'm on the opposite side of the planet and currently working like a mad man on both 1001bit Pro and my other occupation... :(
James of Ria Solutions (1001bit's UK reseller and beta tester) has volunteered to present 1001bit tools during the Basecamp.
I'm sure he will do a great job there! :D
Hope i can make it to future Basecamp.

just downloaded the trial! thanks. will give it a go and probably buy it.

i'm wondering why the cut hole (window / door / etc.) doesn't use the head height (top) of the opening for its reference when placing the hole in the model... would be much easier - as this is how i (and most folks i know) set doors and windows - based on their head height. it removes having to do any math, and odd sized windows all come in with their tops aligned.

cool tools so far!

hi bmike,
hmm... never thought about setting from head level. We always set from sill level over here.... :geek:

That's a good point bmike makes, Goh. In Australia [as well as many other countries I assume] would align door and window heads at the same height generally....

Would be a nice amendment.

thanks.



yes, stateside most folks i've worked will always set from head height. this gives you the option of keeping tops of doors and windows aligned, but also using whatever sized window you want and standardizing header heights, making details / builders docs easier.

maybe just a toggle / preference that can be turned on or off?

Noticed some issues with some tools:

Extrude Selected Profile (Maintain Taper)
* Tool quides only display top face - not conneced edges.
* Maintain Original face not undoable in one step ( Could behave like PushPull with Ctrl as modifier?)

Draw point on face
* Tool does not invalidate view on deactivate or mouse click

Align selected edges
* Not undoable in one operation

Enjoying the demo of this plugin! I was wondering if there were a way to have the rafters and such be created as component instances, or at least group copies? It would make editing a lot easier.

Thanks for all the work on this! I can't wait to see what you add next! (Decking? Brick?)

hi Krisidious,

I design homes with Curved walls... Flex-C is a product to accomplish Curved Walls quickly in the field.
flexcwall.jpg


it uses a top and bottom plate that can snake into whatever curve you like.

I can already use the Copy along Path tool to copy this Flex-C Wall unit along a wall path.

it would be nicer if I could use the UI Dialog to choose options for the wall. such as a double top plate or a header.

until a fix is added to 1001bit tools, you could use thomthom's tt_groups2comps.rb
it takes a bunch of groups and turns them into one component.

Thanks Kristoff, but Thom's tool only works with group copies. The rafters generated by the plugin are grouped individually. I'd imagine it would be tough to sort out on a big hipped roof as a lot of rafters will vary in length, but on a gabled roof or deck, the option to make copies of those rafters of the same size would be nice for editing and keeping the file size smaller.
