[Plugin] follow me rotate

Re: [Plugin] follow me rotate

Postby Einstein » Sun Jan 07, 2018 12:03 am

Houson, I have a problem :(

I installed Follow and rotate, checked that all files have been pasted into Plugins folder. I clicked the extension record but the plugin window didn't show up :( Instead, Ruby throwed an error:

Error: #<TypeError: wrong argument type (expected Sketchup::Entity or Array of Sketchup::Entity)>
c:/users/dell/appdata/roaming/sketchup/sketchup 2017/sketchup/plugins/followandrotate_cn.rbs:42:in `add'
c:/users/dell/appdata/roaming/sketchup/sketchup 2017/sketchup/plugins/followandrotate_cn.rbs:42:in `wikii_push_pull'
c:/users/dell/appdata/roaming/sketchup/sketchup 2017/sketchup/plugins/followandrotate_cn.rbs:109:in `block in <main>'
SketchUp:1:in `call'

I preselected a face (with and then without its bounding edges, as TIG advised) and a welded path-curve but nothing happened. Adding quide point at the begining and ending of path did not help either. I read that many people had similar problem formerly but I didn't find solution in the thread.

I removed the .rbs file with _en suffix which prevented SU from splashing error on startup but still I cannot run the tool.

Einstein, see this. It doesn't work in SU2017 or SU2018 and the author would need to fix it because it is encrypted. So far the author hasn't shown any interest in fixing it, though.

If you've downloaded the RBZ file to your computer, use Install Extension which will be found in Window>Extension manager. There's not much point installing this one, however. If you read my post before yours and follow the link I provided, you'll see it doesn't work in SU2017.

Go back to posts over a year ago where it's explained how to remove the incorrect RB file so that it at least loads.
However, since it's already been reported as flaky in v2017, its encrypted files might not now be fixable...

It's already been reported that this extension doesn't work in Su2017 or SU2018. See the previous posts in this thread regarding that. It appears that the author isn't going to update it for newer versions of SketchUp. At least they haven't yet.

As Dave says the original author hasn't supported this tool for many years.
It doesn't work in any of the newer SketchUp versions.
Under the terms of its © notice it could be reworked and republished, but I looked at it last year and found that to make it compatible with newer SketchUp could involve so much work it might as well be rewritten from scratch !
So search for an alternative tool...

If you read the posts above yours, you'll see that it hasn't been updated in quite a long time. Evidently the author has elected not to support it anymore.

What plugin would be suggested to replace Follow me rotate for the newer versions of SU that would follow a bezier curved line?

You'd need an old version of SketchUp. If you read a few posts up from yours you will see this plugin does not work with SketchUp 2017. It hasn't been supported for years. Best thing is to look for a different tool to do what you want.

Again, if you read the last few posts in this thread you can see that Pilou offered a possible alternative. There may be something else that could do what you are trying to do but you haven't told us that, yet. You could start a new thread in the Newbie category, share your model file and describe what it is you are trying to accomplish. We'll surely be able to give you guidance.

Hei, I am facing a problem regarding this plugin. When i installed it a load error is generated saying Error: sketchup:1:in 'eval'. Moreover, this plugin is not working. It is showing in "Extension" Tab but not working even after trying various permutations of usage. Please, rectify this error along with the specified glitch.

If you read back through the last few pages of this thread you will see that this plugin does not work in SketchUp 2017 or later and is not supported anymore. Best to use some alternative. Pilou provided some options a few posts up from yours.

Thanks people for telling me that the plugin named "follow and rotate" doesn't work in SU17 and later versions. But anyone please enlighten us with the alternative(s) till the time author brings the updated version of FaR so that there is no lag in work. Thank You! :D :D

There is probably some other extension that will do what you need. Which one depends on exactly what you are trying to model.

till the time author brings the updated version of FaR so that there is no lag in work.


I wouldn't hold my breath. It's been years since the author made any updates to this extension. I think it's fairly safe to assume there won't be any.
