“Review of Eneroth Tool Memory”

About SketchUp: SketchUp or Google SketchUp is mainly a3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also. SketchUp can be getting as a freeware version named SketchUp Make and a paid version with many more extra benefits called SketchUp Pro. SketchUp is software from Trimble Company and there is an online library of free model congregations and 3D Warehouse to which users can add other models; besides that, the program has drawing layout functionality with variable ‘styles’, supports third-party ‘plug-in’ programs hosted on the Extension Warehouse to supply other abilities and enables placement of its models in Google Earth. As SketchUp users are most of architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers etc. who works hard to give a nice shape to our physical world, they need great tools to do the work. SketchUp is in mission to bring their best to produce some great tools for drawing as drawing is the key thing of the SketchUp users. They draw to search ideas, to identify the things and to show other people their work that they do with love and love to build; SketchUp understands it truly and trying to improve their software day by day.

About Extension Warehouse:

It is an online resource with various plug-ins developed made especially for SketchUp and these extensions help to add some special tools and features to SketchUp. These extensions can be found for any particular application like drawing or 3D printing and some industry specified tools for architecture, interior design, construction and many more. So basically in this Extension Warehouse people can do the following things:

  • Users can search extensions by name or as per the functionality.
  • They can also install various extensions with a single click of a button.
  • Or users can also control all the extensions from easy-to-use location in the My Extension page.

Eneroth Tool Memory:

It is like a Cycle that like used tools with a new twist. Cycles open windows with the keys Alt+Tab in windows, this plugin can be used to cycle recently in SketchUp. Eneroth Tool Memory plugin can speed up highly and simplifies the modeling process; this plugin is primarily aimed at skilled professional users who look for ways to improve their work. Moreover that, this plugin is as most useful for tools that users use too little to have a shortcut for but vey regular after using them.

Setup of Eneroth Tool Memory:

After installing the plugin, it will ask for some manual setup to work which cannot be done in automated way but can be done in just few minutes:

  • Users at first need to open the Shortcut settings from the follow path: Window> Preferences> Shortcuts.
  • Then users have to organize a shortcut which is Ctlr+Spacebar and follow the path: Extensions> Eneroth Tool Memory> Cycle Tools. Users can also choose a modifier key other than Ctrl in Windows or Command in Mac, then the following path will be: Extensions> Eneroth Tool Memory> Set Modifier Key and select that key.
  • Besides the above two options, users can also set up a concur shortcut including Shift; just as Ctrl+Shift+Space, Extensions> Eneroth Tool Memory> Cycle Tools Backwards.

Exclude tools: The version 1.1.0 of Eneroth Tool Memory is the stratpoint of every user that can specify tools to exclude and it can be useful when users don’t want the tool stack to get filled with the tools which already have shortcuts. So they need to create a text file in the plugin’s directory, and then have to write the tool names which must be similar in the tool stack and separated by line breaks.

Users should keep in mind that Certain tools are not added to the tool stack; like the Texture Positioning Tool must be started from the context menu of a face. This tool can be activated without a reference to a face but it wouldn’t be useful and it will not act as a tool. While Camera tools such as Orbit and Zoom Window are not added by default as they can be added optionally though there will be risk in the stack.

It is a wonderful tool for developers as it can create and activate new tool objects than re-using existing objects. Tools whose constructors need parameters will not be reminded by this plugin as these tools are actually designed to be initialized in a certain way. So users make sure that the class of their tools can be supported by Eneroth Tool Memory and initialized without arguments.
