Version 1.6.7 - 09.26.2020
- Added additional tool tips to the Wall Corners tab of the Global Settings.



I've been fielding a lot of questions recently about the corner offset parameter and related wall end/corner conditions. I may need to still provide additional documentation and diagrams to further clarify these parameters.

Version 1.6.8 - 09.28.2020
- Added a "Refresh Licensee Data" button within the License tab of the Global Settings.



Previously when you renewed your license you would need to go through some convoluted steps to refresh you license data within the plugin. This new feature reduces this process to a single mouse click.

Previously the required steps were:

1.) Remove the existing serial number.
2.) Click the Save Settings button.
3.) Re-enter your serial number.
4.) Click the Save Settings button again.
5.) Restart SketchUp.

First look at a 3D batten cladding on rectangular walls:

Some more screenshots of battens:







*Notice the format of the batten material and its three numeric values within the name of the material.

Texture vs. 3D Battens:



Personally I prefer the texture myself, lower poly and it looks just as good or better than the real deal.

Version 1.6.9 - 10.17.2020
- Added the ability to create custom "Board and Batten" wall cladding materials within the Material Library.
- Enabled "3D" Board and Batten wall cladding for all wall types: Rectangular, Gable, Shed and Hip.



For the plugin to recognize the wall cladding material as a "board and batten" material is must be in this format:

battens_{decimal value}_{decimal value}_{decimal_value}

The three values are: batten spacing, batten width, batten depth respectively.

There should be no white spaces inserted into the name, only the underscore character in three places as shown.

Another view of board and battens:



Just over five years into programming these plugins, I released the first version of the Truss plugin Oct. 7, 2015.

The further I go it seems like I just keep coming up with more things "todo". I really need to take myself and clone me about five times and then set each clone at developing the various plugins, maybe then I might get somewhere with all of this.
