New tools and improvements in v1.1.6!!!

Postby GohCH » Sun Jun 14, 2009 4:01 am

hi Everyone!
1001bit tools (version 1.1.6) is now ready for download! :D

Improvements includes:
1) Added a new Revolved Surface tool

This tool produce a revolved surface from selected edges, and the edges do not have to be co-planar.
You can specify the angle, segments along the rotation, and also the scale.

I'll put more details in a separate topic under 1001bit tools.

2) sorted out a bug in the panel divider tool. Please see details in windows and doors topic.

3) sorted out a bug in the hip roof tool. You can now generate hip roof directly from extruded top surface.

4) Improvement on setting up: no longer need to define path; as long as the 1001bit folder is located within Sketchup's plugins folder; it'll be fine.
You can still choose to define custom location for your 1001bit folder. Just keep your original path file (eg. 1001bit_path_win_su7.rb) or create a new path file
1001bit_path.rb file with a text editor and have the following line in the file

$GH1001bit_path="/your custom path/1001bit"

place the file inside Sketchup's plugins folder. note the name of the file is not important, as long as it has a .rb extension and it get run when SU loads.

I have not included the language folder in the standard zip file so that it will not overwrite the translated language file that you currently have.
However, the images are included. For those who are using language packs with translated images, you'll have to reload the images from the language pack again, after setting up v1.1.6

For details on necessary changes in language pack translations, please refer

Thanks for everyone's support and have fun with 1001bit tools! :D :D :D

hi elcorto,
Seems like an error that occurs due to the language file. Which language pack are you using?
can you email me your language pack files? (i.e. zip the language folder and email to me at gohch@1001bit.com)
Thanks
Goh

I have this also before I set the new lines 39 into the main txt file.
After that it works.

Apologies. had not understood this:

2 new lines need to be added to 1001bitmenu.txt file (anywhere before end>>end>>end)
t39>>Revolved surface>>Revolved surface
st39>>Create revolved surface from selected edges.>>Create revolved surface from selected edges.
Please refer the 1001bitmenu.txt file inside the.

Now works fine.

Note:
a - The tool "Panel Divider", does not work.
Can be solved?
Thank you very much.

Elcorto's Panel Divider issue resolved.
it's a clash with another plugin that uses offset.rb; unfortunately, it is quite impossible to debug this type of conflict. :(
i'll see what i can do when i have a bit more time... ;)
cheers and thanks for your support!

Can someone please advise if a solution to the Panel Divider issue has been found. If not which other plugin might be causing the plugin. I will delete the other plugin if it is one that I do not use much.
