[Plugin] Multiple Offsets (Updated 09-Feb-2014)

Postby sdmitch » Wed Feb 22, 2012 8:28 pm

In response to http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtop ... 23&t=43426

One last update. Addressed problem of possible conflict with other plugins
and fixed a bug when using a delta values list with multiple faces.

Select one or more faces. Run the plugin and select one of three offset methods.

Constant: Input number of offsets, distance between offsets, direction to
offset, either inside, outside, or both, and whether the selected face(s) and all
created faces are to be deleted, select No to keep faces.

Formula: Enter number of offsets, distance to first offset, direction to offset,
delete faces Yes or No, select operator + or *, and value to add or multiply by.

List: Select direction of offsets, delete faces Yes or No, a list of offsets
separated by commas, choose type of offset either absolute or a delta value
to be added to the last offset value. If the offsets are a repeated sequence,
end the list with *X, where X = the number of repetitions for the offset
sequence entered.

In one test case, the offsets were placed opposite of the direction setting. Why this occurred is still a mystery. The simple solution is to undo, rerun and choose the opposite direction.

The latest version is available from the PluginStore...

Retracing any segment of the closed curve with the Line Tool should create a face.

Major update posted today. Offsets can be created by three methods

Constant: Input number of offsets, distance between offsets, direction to
offset, either inside, outside, or both, and whether the selected face(s) and all
created faces are to be deleted, select No to keep faces.

Formula: Enter number of offsets, distance to first offset, direction to offset,
delete faces Yes or No, select operator + or *, and value to add or multiply by.

List: Select direction of offsets, delete faces Yes or No, a list of offsets
seperated by commas, choose type of offset either absolute or a delta value
to be added to the last offset value. If the offsets are a repeated sequence,
end the list with *X, where X = the number of repititions for the offset
sequence entered.

curious nothing append on V7 and V6! :o
All menu appear but nothing is done! Does this normal ?

Work like a charm in V8 ! :fro: (aespecially the * x with a list ! :thumb: ;)

As the "exotic Push Pull" seems have a problem maybe will be a good thing to input it inside this plug during the calculate ?

Or See my new request ;)

Hi Pilou and Sam,

Multiple Offsets works for me with Su7



However problems with the List Options:

- List:Offset by * 3
Absolute and Delta choice gives the same result:
>> x3 Delta offset (see pict)
(colored after for a better watch)

- List: Offsets: + operator don't work and deletes the offseted faces

@Simon
Curious you write 20,30,40,50*3, that must be 20,30,40,50,*3 ;)
Edit : in fact that gives the same result! :mrgreen:

blajov, sorry about that but I only have SU8 Free at my disposal so there is no way for me to determine why that is the case.

Sam

The multiple offset does not work on my computer,none of the options, constant, formula or list. I have Sketchup, V8, M1. Here is the error message. Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for the update, Sam. It does exactly what I needed.

nmhai: That's not an issue with the plugin. You'd get that with the native offset tool as well. The error is in the setup. You can either fix by deleting the unwanted edges or you start with the inner most profile and offset outward. You might also have a look at TIG's Smart Offset.
