[Plugin] FredoTools::ThruPaint - v1.3a - 20 Oct 16

Re: [Plugin] FredoTools::ThruPaint 1.0m - 14 Apr 12

Postby rv1974 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 12:19 pm

Fredo this is yet another pearl!
A couple of questions\wishes:
1/ How could I get back the native Alt-key eyedropper?
2/ How to correct the UVW mapping on the surface #1 (see attached)?
3/ If only the Thrupaint could bend the textures along selected curves (AB) (upon unquadrified surfaces (#2) it'd really amazing!

Thank you for your efforts!

You can call the native Paint Tool from ThruPaint (key F9 or small button on the right of palette).

There is a sampler in ThruPaint (press Enter when you mouseover a face), but it is restricted to the model and does not detect projected textures, as this is not available from Ruby.

Unfortunately, this is not possible, because Sketchup uses only Perspective mapping, not bilinear mapping.

This perspective effect is attenuated if you grid the face into smaller cells (quads or triangles), for instance with Curviloft.

I will need to find or develop a small algorithm for quadifying a face nicely. Then you are back to case 2) above. But with a mesh which is dense enough it should work.

Just to be clearer, the density of the mesh is the only way to get the texture 'reasonably' distorted. When quads are too much like a triangle, the perspective distortion shifts the texture mapping.

In the case of your texture, that may help to do the trick, but it's a pity to have to generate so many faces

@Pilou
It is not so easy to generate the right mesh in the general case (and in this particular case).
Asphalt Quadrilaterizer.png


...and QuadFaceTools only manages quad meshes which it can triangulate, but not any polygon.

I think Whaat has developed an more adapted algorithm as part of SketchUV.

Absolutely stunning! One of the best plugins I have seen so far (besides your others)! I think I will never use the native paint tool again.

And it's free! You are amazing! :berserk:

It might be a conflict with another plugin, which you would not have in the PC at the office.
Do you have any plugins dealing with materials or UV mapping?

For this, ould you type in the Ruby Console Sketchup::Material.instance_methods.join("\n") and advise on what it returns.

Thanks

Played around with it for quite some time now and still I am amazed about what this plugin can do.

If I may ask, would it be possible to add an option that allows to chose the scale of the texture before applying it and then keep that value until it is changed? That would save a lot of time in comparison to changing the scale of each texture manually after it was applied.

That's a good idea, but I would put it as an option.
Note you can also change the material definition (i.e. the dimensions).

Of course you can but often enough I have a model where I wish to use the same material in different scales and having an option to choose a different scale before applying a material would be great!

Re: [Plugin] FredoTools::ThruPaint 1.0n - 21 Apr 12

Postby fredo6 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:51 pm

NEW RELEASE: ThruPaint v1.0n - 21 Apr 12

This update introduces 2 functional evolutions

1) Painting of a preselection of faces or edges
If you select faces or edges before launching ThruPaint, the painted faces or edges will be those of the preselection whenever you mouse over them (regardless of the face selection settings in the palette).
  • When the material is a color or for edge painting, the painting applies to the whole pre-selection
  • When the material is a texture, you have to paint by groups of faces in the preselection
ThruPaint Initial Selection.gif


2) Remembering of last scaling and rotation factors by material.
This is inspired from a request by Pherim

If you apply a textured material to a face and then scale it and/or rotate it, the scaling and rotation factors will be remembered the next time you apply this material.
Likewise, the sampling of material within the model also copy the scaling and rotation factors.
ThruPaint Keep Transfo.gif


See main post of this thread for more information on ThruPaint.

See main post of FredoTools thread for download of FredoTools, which includes the script.

You have the transfer UV mode, which allows to substitute a texture by another without changing the UVs.

Otherwise, if the faces are adjacent to the painted faces, just click and drag to extend the painting.

If the mesh is made out of Quads you can use QuadFace Tools to copy and paste UV mapping.

can be applied a methodology similar to native sketchup materials, using the "Alt" to copy the properties of a material?

We cannot use ALT in scripts because when the key is UP it gives focus to the main Sketchup menu.
But I can do it on Shift

Note that you can also press the Enter key to sample the material under the mouse

Fredo

I have updated as required Fredo Tools to 1.1n and Thru:Paint to 1.0n, however the Check Plugin for Updates still list the two programs as Fredo Tools as 1.1m and Thru:Paint as 1.0m.

Am I making a mistake, or is the new programs not registering correctly?


Thanks

Hi Fredo, i'm testing the last revision of ThruPaint 1.0n on Mac (OSX 10.6.8 & SU8) all works fine except that you say in the main post about Material Selector but i have found other problem the arrows don't work on Mac, it is not a big problem because i can introduce the values through the Measures or Visual Edition Mode.
Thanks for this great plugin!! :thumb:

Did it work in previous versions?
Or other Mac OS versions?

This is really great, thank you for fulfilling my request!

It works great, just how I wanted it to. [[Just one small thing: It would be perfect to me if the "sample material" tool could also adopt the scale of the sampled material.
I hope I don't bother you with my daydreams... :roll:]] edit: never mind, it works perfectly! :thumb:
