[Plugin] Repeat Copy UPDATED 2-24-2010

[Plugin] Repeat Copy UPDATED 2-24-2010

Postby Chris Fullmer » Tue Feb 16, 2010 4:12 am

I just wrote and released a new script called Repeat Copy, based on the request made in this thread. Repeat Copy can be downloaded from smustard for $8.00 USD.

Download Repeat Copy at Smustard

Description
This script allows you to quickly add copies of components to your model by just clicking where the copy should be added. Its a great way to quickly add component copies to a model.

It is installed in Plugins > Chris Fullmer Tools > Repeat Copy. To use it, first select a component or series of components, then activate the Repeat Copy tool. Clicking anywhere in the model will add a copy of one of the selected components. It randomly selects a component to place based on the selected components at the time the script is initiated. Holding ctrl will force it to place components in order instead of randomly.

v1.6 Update lets you move the user interface by clicking and dragging in the upper left box of the User Interface!

v1.5 Update includes rotation and scaling plus a new OnScreen Interface!

Free suggestion :)
Cool but will be very more cool if by option that works too as long as you don't release the left mouse button! ;)

is it possible?

That is a possibility. I already wrote a script that randomzies scale and rotation of components, but it works on a selection of components, not like this where this could randomize them on insertion into the model, which would be cool.

So we'll see, it might find its way into this plugin in time.

Nice plugin Chris, and as the others said, some options to randomize scale and/or rotation could be great.

Thanks anyway !!

Regards.

That's really slick, Chris! I think that sort of on-screen interface fits nicely into the "SketchUp way" of working.

thought. perhaps an option would be good to insert groups or components of two ways -


position> onto face
position> as the original

perhaps, following start of the tool. pressing Ctrl ( switch between insert original and ontoface)

looks promising, Chris - great job/development.

I agree w/ Pilou - holding down mouse button should continue placing components 1 every half second or something reasonable like that... would have to try it out to see what is a 'reasonable' speed - something fast enough, but not so fast you can't control it.

Great, thanks Andrew!

Yeah, I thought $6.00 was a good simple price for a pretty cool plugin. But Once I took the time to put in those cool buttons, I think is sort of steped up a level in complexity and coolness. Hence the small price jump. So I'm glad you were able to get in on it while it was only $6.00

BTW - I just finished updating the new version, it has been uploaded to smustard, along with a new video tutorial. Thanks to everyone for cheking this script out, and for the helpful ideas. I will still be looking at them into the next update, or perhaps an even more comprehensive version of this script.

To upgrade, you can track down the email with the link. Or you can also install the smustard toolbar plugin

http://www.smustard.com/script/SmustardToolbar

and I think that lets you track updates easily on your smustard plugins. I think ti checks for updates and then lets you update them easily.

@wind-borne at this time there is no built in way to move the UI. It is something that is planned and really is not terribly hard to fix. I'll look into it, but expect anything super soon.

Hey Chris,

Great plugin! A multicopy function :)

What i was wondering: how did you create that interface?
Was it with add_note?

I imagine its drawn in the viewport using openGL (accessible when you create a tool.) add_note only allows you to add text.
