can't it be used on su5? it formed a group containing just one construction point at 0,0,0 instead of the 2x2 or 3x3 or nxn points :bounce:

I have the same problem! the UPDATE FFD does not apear. It seemn pretty easy to use this plugin, I really got the idea in 10 seconds. But it doesn'n work at me. Did i do something wrong? Also, no erors in the Ruby console.

That is the new group created by the FFD. You can simply delete or hide it when done with it.

Hi myrto, as far as i know, FFD works on groups. So you have to group your object then right click and you will find FFD in your context menu. Add how many control points you want and use the tool.
Read the very first post of this thread for detailed explanations.

worked for me in 7.1 pro?

BTW, i just used this script for first time for an actual purpose instead of just playing! :ecstatic: awsome thanks again. there was no other way i could think of to achieve the same result. i'm sure i could have tweaked and tweaked manually until i gave up. :? put its not my style. :lol:

Hello my name paan,

can you find or make sketchup plugin that can detect the edge of the texture and turn into that shape . It's more like make the rectangle turn into the shape of the texture that have transparent background .

sorry for my bad English and i hope you understand what i meant
and if you find it don't forgate to send an email to me at:

hi paan,

I think that is quite difficult, because SketchUp isn't ment to do such operations with textures. I am not a ruby coder though.
if you have got Adobe Illustrator there may be a workaround by importing the image, tracing it and then exporting as dwg. file. then you can import the dwg into SketchUp... haven't done it myself though.

oh, and in future it might be better to open up a new thread for such enquiries. that is a completely different topic after all. having it as a separate discussion would help others too, when they are looking to solve similar problems ;)

same for me. sometimes it works with 3x3 control points. sometimes it doesn't. sometimes it just needs a restart. sometimes it needs a whole new file. and sometimes it doesn't work at all, no matter what I do (custom control point numbers don't seem to work at all anymore).

so I am afraid this script needs to be rewritten for SU 7.1
what a pity :(

Sorry, I wasnt keeping up on this thread.

There is a problem with the script under 7.1 or just 7.0? Can you give me some idea how to reproduce the bug? If it starts misbehaving open up the ruby console and see if it is printing any errors.

Well, here, under 7.1 Mac, it still works but not as well as before. No matter where the group is located, the FFD dot matrix appears at the origin.
FFD-7.1.png

The console does provide a warning:
onSelectionBulkChange1
Webdialog set to#<Sketchup::Group:0x1ce30424>
WARNING: make_unique is a deprecated method of Sketchup:Group
onSelectionCleared

Hope this helps.

Good news, I guess the last update of SU corrected something related cause FDD now works just fine again.
No matrix offset anymore :ecstatic: :thumb:

First, thanks to the author for this great plugin! Unfortunately Im not getting it to work right with the latest sketchup release (SketchUp 7 (7.1.5803) and OSX.
The live update does not work, and only the 3x3 FFD works (with no live update).
My console reports this:

When creating the 3x3 FFD control points:
"WARNING: make_unique is a deprecated method of Sketchup:Group"

When creating the NxN FFD control points:
"WARNING: make_unique is a deprecated method of Sketchup:Group
Error: #<NoMethodError: undefined method `*' for nil:NilClass>
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:453:in `calcBernstein'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:210:in `initFFD'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:209:in `upto'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:209:in `initFFD'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:200:in `each'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:200:in `initFFD'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:151:in `startFFD'
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/Plugins/SketchyFFD.rb:20"

Hope to fix this soon... the plugin is a really must-have :cry:

since switching to SketchUp 7 I can only use the default 3x3 lattice. any user defined deformation matrix doesn't work (the lattice is created, but moving the points doesn't have any effect)... :?
