I found this site, and hopefully there is someone who can help. I’m a
newbie, a code illiterate. But I’m resorceful enough to figure out 555,
without knowing what on earth that was about! lol
Anyhow, I do office work at a construction company, and because I can
read architectual drawings ok, I have been given the task of translating
them into something the workshop can work from. I tried a few programs
(they have autocad there, but its not what I wanted), but none of them
suited. Until I discovered Sketchup, which is pretty easy to maniplate.
There is a bit of repetitive drawings, like cabinets etc, and I was
looking at adding some plugins for that. We found a cabinetmaking
plugin called cab.rb, and a guy in the office altered that to suit. But
I have had trouble. With the just sketchup screen up I was able to draw
lines, select all, then make the component. But with the plugins it
seems the whole box is one component that I can’t manipulate like I
want. Any way, can the attached plugin be written so all the pieces
(ie, left panel, bottom shelf) end up as components, as well as part of
the group? Some people have sent me code, but I really don’t know where
to put it.
Thanks in advance.
