Visualizer for SketchUp

Re: Visualizer for SketchUp

Postby ct200224 » Wed Jul 13, 2016 4:28 am

Hey, I'm having a lot of trouble locating Visualizer plugins on my SketchUp.... It doesn't seem to be showing up at all. Here's a picture of my plugins folder in SketchUp 2015 with Visualizer installed:
at path /Users/[yourname]/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2015/SketchUp
SketchUp 2016 folder (w/o visualizer, duh):
at path /Users/[yourname]/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2016/SketchUp
Can someone help me at least locate the file?

Maybe someone could just upload the files so that I can manually download them? Please?

if you run this in 'Ruby Console' it will move a copy for you into the v16 User/Library...

If you read through the thread, you should have seen that the v15 path is for the HD/Library...

Code: Select all
v15_folder = "/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2015/SketchUp/Plugins/ImaginationVisualizer"
v15_extension = v15_folder + '.rb'

v16_folder = File.expand_path("~") + v15_folder.sub('5', '6')
v16_extension = v16_folder + '.rb'

command = 'ditto ' + v15_folder.inspect + ' ' + v16_folder.inspect + ' && ' + \
'ditto ' + v15_extension.inspect + ' ' + v16_extension.inspect

system(command)

Hello

I'm still trying to install Visualizer 1.3 on a Mac running El Capitan 10.11.5 with SketchUp v. 16.1.1451

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions? Or point me to some?

Thanks!

Visualizer will not install in SketchUp v16 without tricking it to do so...

temporarily renaming SketchUp 2016 folder in Finder to SketchUp 2015 will allow the download to make the the v15 files...

once downloaded, change the name back and run the ruby code posted in the post above...

Thanks, driven, for this help. I find, though, that I don't have a folder called "SketchUp 2016" on my Mac. Do you mean in the applications?

I had SU 8 until now and recently upgraded to SU 2016, in case that makes a difference.

Quick clarification: the folder SketchUp is in on my Mac is just called "SketchUp".

Hi Fred,

Just so its clear, because I didnt think it was possible. You managed(with John's help) to get Visualizer installed on a Mac with only Sketchup2016 installed.

Hi willanie

Yes, that's correct, and I was glad to see that Visualizer works fairly quickly on my MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2014, with 2.8 GHz Intel Core i5 and 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM.

Hello,

I have installed Visualizer 1.3 and it works with 2015 (on MAC OS). However there are two issues.

The first, is that anytime I close out of the program while modeling it generates a crash report.

The second issue is that it doesn't appear in the Library/Application Support/SketchUp2015/SketchUp/Plugins folder which means I can't copy the Visualizer folder or the ruby file over to the SketchUp 2016.

Anyone have any ideas? Anything would help. Thanks in advance.

T.

Hi Pilou,
Quoi faire, si je n'ai pas 2015 comme voi de migrer. J'ai une installation frais de 2016 et installer Visualizer c'est impossible (Vous n'avez pas SketchUp 2013, 2014 ou 2015).
Est-ce que tu a un trick pour cela aussi?
Merci en avance,
Aristos

Hi,

Does something like that work on Windows 7 as well? I tried with renaming the 64-bit program directory from SketchUp 2016 in SketchUp 2015 - but that was apparently too easy... Still the message: You need 2013, 2014 or 2015....

Im pretty sure you must at least install 2015 with windows OS.
Here is a link to sketchup forum posting for getting 2015 Make.

It was working with The 2016 on OS X

Pour cela il fallait juste copier l'ancienne installation sur /Bibliothèque/Application Support/Sketchup 2016/
(Pas dans User/Biblithéque/Application Support/Sketchup 2016/ mais à la racine du disque)

Cela ne marche pas pour Sketchup 2017

the 2016 tricks will not work for this or any plugin that cannot be updated to run on Ruby 2.2...

there is no legal way around this for encrypted extensions...

The Visualizer website is down! Does anyone have a list of enhanced material names for the different reflection levels?

I only remember gloss and matte

I recall paint plastic / metal somewhere...

thanks-heaps!

Has anyone been able to render a sand blasted/ frosted glass in Visualizer. I have tested lots of different ways and no proper results. I know the software is somehow limited in some ways, but I thought maybe someone has been successful with a setting for frosted glass or sand blasted glass that would actually render properly in Visualizer.

Thanks
