Did you look in the Draw menu? Make sure you have installed the most recent version and also the latest TT_Lib2 installed.

hello ThomThom,

I'm trying to use the plugin to import Sketchup dimensions lines into Sketchfab which is a well known big problem (if you don't use a picture for it)... I use the plugin to create the 2d dimension line value ... but i need the line ... maybe a possible improvement of the 3d text editor plugin ?

Thank you.

What version of SketchUp are you using? Please complete your profile as that information helps us help you.

If you are going to the trouble of adding dimensions as 3D text, why not make a dimension line component that you can insert?

Personally if I'm going to download a 3D model to use as a plan, I wouldn't want all the dimensions as 3D geometry. That would just bloat the file without providing much benefit.

I noticed that SketchUp creates 3D text with very low precision. I mean, letters' curvature are made up with very low number of segments, and they look quite jaggy when you zoom in.
I guess Editable 3D Text uses the same methods for text generation so it also looks jagged but I thought: maybe it would be possible to generate text with more precision?

It suddenly stoped working

For some reason it only shows a red cross where you click until selecting an other tool.

So the pop-up to enter or edit the 3D text doesn't show up anymore in Sketchup 2019 :(

Works fine for me up to the latest SketchUp version...

What's the version of its RBZ - 1.3.0 is the newest...
If you have the Ruby Console open when you start the tool are there any error messages ?
Have you got the latest TT Lib installed ?
Have you cleared the Internet Explorer cache ?? It might be corrupted and affecting the dialog...

I am experiencing the same issue in Sketchup 2021. Even uninstalled/reinstalled it and TTlib2. It used to work but no longer does, no 3d text window appears, just some "align to face" dialogue that does nothing after clicking. After that I just get a red X on the screen.

This is what I see in SketchUp 2021.

Make sure you installed SketchUp correctly which involves right clicking on the downloaded installer and choosing Run as administrator from the context menu.

By the way, perhaps you could update your profile. Currently it says you are using SketchUp 2019 Free/Make which would be impossible anyway.
