Ropefall for Sketchup – A newest sketchup extension

Balazs Torma develops Ropefall for sketchup. The plugin supports SketchUp 2015 and SketchUp 2016. This sketchup plugin is used to develop and design the model of realistic ropes, cables, wires with physics simulation instantly.

The algorithm simulates a rope that drops downward to bottom through a custom spring based physics model. The two ends of the rope won’t go down as they are fixed. The falling rope is obstructed by hurdles in the way.

1. Turn on the line tool and sketch a polyline characterizing the preliminary shape of the rope.

2. Turn on the select tool and choose the polyline.

3. Click menu Draw → Ropefall → Fall.

4. Identify rope parameters and click the ‘ok’ button to begin simulation.

5. Wait unless the simulation is finished or discontinue it with the Esc key.

TIP: The simulation process can be more speedy if hiding parts of the model that (presumably) does not block the rope from falling.

One cab use a free version for three days as well as purchase a licence for USD 15. Seewww.sketchrope.com for further details.

How to optimize the process to print scale drawings in sketchup

The youtuber Jack Bench Woodworking, presents a useful video for the sketchup users that offers step-by-step guidelines on how to print scale drawings of the models from sketchup in proper way.

SketchUp will print on the basis of what is correctly exposed on the screen. Therefore, it is significant that your screen displays the view that is required to be present in your drawing. One can only rotate the model around as long as long as it becomes perfect.

SketchUp will automate the process to snap the model to display just one face, and this is more perfect and clear-cut as compared to manual process. The process is very simple :

• Visit the “Camera” drop down menu.

• Hover your mouse over “Standard Views” and fly-out menu will be visible with various options.

• Select the view/perspective that should be shown in your drawing. While performing it, your model will be snap to that orientation.

NOTE: “Parallel Projection” is available just under “Standard Views”. Parallel Projection is the default, but ensure that Parallel Projection is activated.
