[Plugin] Explode2Groups

Postby TIG » Sun Dec 16, 2007 10:06 pm

This script adds a context-menu if the 1st in a selection is a group - 'Explode to Groups'. All connected geometry within that group is grouped into separate sub-groups and the original group exploded...

Hmm, I think this could come in handy on this model I'm currently working on. Checked it out at home and will probably DL it again tomorrow! Thanks!

Does exist some plugin that just transforms components in groups and groups in components?

Nope. What would need such a thing for?

Because at this time, I'm importing things from 3dsMAX to Sketchup, and all subobjects are components, always. I don't like that, I like groups for subobjects, because it doesn't pollute the components browser.

To place multiple components then turn each instance into a group for different modifications, without having to select each one and explode, then group, separately? Still this tool can be used to help in that case.

This tool does not work in v2017.
Trimble changed the way SketchUp keeps references to entities during exploding etc, so this tool now fails.

Sorry, but it is 10 years old. :(

Search for other similar tools which might have been update-able...

You are in luck !
I checked the code and it was a relatively simple fix to make it v2017 compatible !
Here's v2.0
