[Plugin] Sunposition

[Plugin] Sunposition

Postby utiler » Wed May 27, 2009 1:02 am

A ruby I stumbled on that you might like....

WARNING: This plugin is known to break very many other plugins, including the SketchUp to Thea exporter, Curviloft, Profilebuilder, Instant Roof, and possibly many more. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Called SunPosition http://www.cerebralmeltdown.com/proj...unposition.zip

Part extract from the website....
Here is a Sketchup plugin which will draw the path that the sun travels for one day. It does this by first calculating the sun's position at the moment the plugin is run and then adding one half hour and redrawing it repeatedly until 24 hours have passed.

Interesting find, Andrew. It's very similar to Jim's Map Sun plugin (at least by what I can see in the picture because the links are broken).

Yes it is Csaba. On the website it say that a lot more could be added to it so it is fairly simple.

A few additions could be:
1. the sun position could rotate as you toggle across the day....
2. the sun path diagram could be grouped and be subject to alteration via shadows menu...


Anyway, food for thought!!! ;)

I have found the free plugin "SunTool" by Guedi Capeluto useful. Available at:

There is a conflict between the Sunposition plugin and Curviloft (and maybe other scripts). Basically it causes a direct crash of Sketchup when using Curviloft.

see that post for more info on how to resolve the conflict.

Fredo

PS: I could not contact yet the author of the script
