Bring some chaos into your SketchUp scene with CHAOS randomizing script.

CHAOS moves, scales and rotates selected groups/components randomly in X,Y or Z axis within range.

Select which Axis you want to use.
Select if you want to move, scale or rotate or all of them at once.

World is the original SketchUp axis.
Current is the axis if you use the Axes tool to move the axes.
Local is the local axis inside each component/Group.

Transforms are made based on selected group/components origin (axis point).
To make the script NOT use a random value set both min and max to the same value.
Also note that those values can be negative. For example min: -100 and max 100 to make the script randomize in both positive and negative directions from the original position.

Scale and Rotate work, but Move doesn't seem to.

Great progress Pixero, many thanks!
I hope non-modal thing will eventually arrive.

For now you could create a shortcut for the script so it's one key to open it.

That works, Thanks.
Do you want me to delete my gif from earlier or is it handy for showing how it works.

Hi!

A strange thing happens to me. Rotation command uses radians instead of degrees. In the plugin window I typed rotation from 0 to 1 and as I suspected, some cubes rotated about 57 degs which is 1 radian. How can this be fixed?
I attached a screenshot.

Wht's more - I saw in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k56xEFJfeH8
that the suthor uses dedicated button for Chaos, but I cannot find it among available toolbars.

If I also may have a couple of suggestions for further improvement of the plugin (if you plan to keep developing it), these are:
- setting up steps for randomization, for example: 90 degrees rotation step in range of 0-180 degrees (which gives only 3 possible outcomes for entity rotation) or 1m move step in range of 0-5 meters (which gives 6 possible target positions for an entity),
- specify local center (origin) for scaling and rotation, different than component origin, for example: component base, component geometrical center, like in "CLF scale+rotate" plugin.

Yes, it's a theme for Windows 7 (not native but external, downloaded from internet) that affects appearance of SketchUp. I had to first patch system settings to allow installing external themes but it was easy. Note that the changed theme will affect some other program interfaces too, e.g. ArchiCAD, CorelDRAW, Notepad but not: Blender, Unity, MS Office, Autodesk programs.
If you write me a private message, I'll give you more precise instructions cuz it's an offtop now ;)

You have a little trick with Windows for inverse the display! ;)

DARK Interface For Windows no more puzzles to configure exotic user interfaces!
Windows settings (gear): Enable the "Invert Color" checkbox you can also enable "Magnifier" but...it will be automatic by the following shortcuts!
(you can use the search box to find the right Magnifier menu where there will be "Invert Colors")

Shortcuts:
Windows' Logo + "+" key
= Activates this Reverse Color Mode

Windows' Logo + "ESC" key
= Disable this Reverse Color Mode

here with my favorite prog! ;)
