Natale Zappia has developed nz_Scale&Align. This newest sketchup extension is compatible with SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017.
The extension is useful for various sectors like Architecture, Construction, Education, Engineering, Film & Stage, Gaming, Heavy Civil, Interior Design, Kitchen & Bath, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning, Woodworking and other.
The extension combines 3 tools under one place. Relative Scale: It will scale an object depending on the “Source” & “Destination” reference points, equivalent to any two lengths. Scale Factor Scaling: Undeviating scaling depending on user input. Alignment(+Scale or Stand alone): align/copy/relocate.
This sketchup extension is perfect for scaling imported models or Architectural Plans provided that a random length is scaled up to a particular length based on perfect scale and alignment.
The scaling options can be extended to facilitate perfect scaling where ratios should have been retained while scaling to a particular clickable length. It can be executed on-the-fly devoid of requiring for prearranged measurements or the insulative blocks needed by the Sketchup measuring tape technique.
It is possible to scale & align single or multiple groups/components directly or through geometric relationships to instantly produce/multiply an indirect relationship, on the basis of the given image.
