[Plugin] SketchUp Calc (for Windows)

[Plugin] SketchUp Calc (for Windows)

In a nutshell, whenever the Measurements box is available, you can use this to evaluate an expression and send the result to SketchUp. To clarify, scalar values such as lengths and radius - it doesn't know about coordinate pairs, or length units.

Type in expressions just like you would write them, use parenthesis for grouping.

It uses VBScript to eval the textbox, so you can also use any Math that VBS supports including:
  • +, -, *, /, abs(), atn(), cos(), exp(), hex(), int(), fix(), log(), oct(), rnd(), round(), sgn(), sin(), sqr(), tan()

Use the Test button to make sure it uses the correct SketchUp Window. It looks for the first window that matches the title text. Sometimes, it finds non-Sketchup windows that happen to also match.

Once you're sure it's getting the right window, then anytime the Measurements is expecting a value, you can Alt-Tab to the calc, enter a calculation, and hit Send. The calculated value is sent, along with the ENTER key.

Installing - download the .zip, extract the single .hta file. It does not need to be located in any special place. Double-click to run it from anywhere, at any time.

Alpha version, ugly interface but that can be fixed. I just need to know if it works and if anyone's interested.

Thanks.

Did it do anything at all? Did it open and show the window, or do nothing? Any other indications? Thanks.

Jim, thank You for a useful tool.

I have a question though, why it is not launched from the sketchup toolbar?

As this forum page is quite old (started in 2010) is there any su add-on making Measurements calculations that You know of, that is fully internal?

greets, Wiktor
