Molecule Importer – The newest extension for sketchup users

Aerilius has developed molecule importer.

This sketchup extension is compatible with SketchUp 6, SketchUp 7, SketchUp 8, SketchUp 2013, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017.

The users can utilize this sketchup extension, to transmit molecule models into sketchup in .mol and z-matrix formats. These molecule models can be improved with the drawing tools of sketchup.

These molecular models can be generated in chemical drawing programs like ACD ChemSketch. This extension also arranges an “examples” folder to start functioning.

The scale of the imported models is not a physical scale, but it relies on the drawing scale that is described in the .mol file.

Application
Choose File → Import then opt for the MDL Molfile format.

nz_Scale&Align – The newest sketchup extension developed by Natale Zappia

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.

One can download the extension from extension warehouse extensions.sketchup.com

ArchiWIZARD – The newest sketchup extension available in extension warehouse

ArchiWIZARD is a useful extension for sketchup. It supports SketchUp 2013, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017.

The extension can be used to smoothly transmit a project to ArchiWIZARD for producing real-time building energy performance, solar potential and lighting analysis.

With this extension, ArchiWIZARD users will be able to coordinate their model(project) directly from sketchup.

This real-time 3D analysis software is founded on BIM model and directly associated with the architectural CAD solutions on Mac and PC.

ArchiWIZARD offers perfect thermal, light, solar gains and shadows analysis, renewable energy simulation (photovoltaic & thermal solar systems).

EnergyPlus building energy simulation engine (STD) is implanted in this extension to combine even more precise building performance analysis with the advanced practicability of ArchiWIZARD user interface and interoperability capabilities.

ArchiWIZARD notifies you about the consequence and performance of your architectural and technical choices concerning energy performance, thermal and visual comfort, and bioclimatic quality out of the sketch intended for new constructions and refurbishment.

It comprises of various building elements libraries and user-friendly configuration, results visualization and reports production tools.

Milling Tools – The newest sketchup extension

Thomas Thomassen has developed an exclusive sketchup extension alias Milling Tools. It supports SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017.

It can be used to generate Dog-Bone fillets, take out 2D profile out of 3D parts for laser/CNC cutting. It is mostly suitable for engineering and woodworking sectors.

Dog Bone Fillets: Generates Dog-Bone fillets on the faces clicked by you.

  • Apply VCB to fix the radius of the tool.
    • Apply VCB to fix arc segment quality. (“8s” will create arcs on the basis of circles containing 8 segments)

There should be no connection between the face clicked on and any other faces or edges.

Part abstraction for CNC/Laser cutting
Instigated from a thread (forums.sketchup.com) from the SketchUp forum.

 Abstract Parts: Choose a set of 3D parts, the faces on the ground plane of each instance will be withdrawn to a 2D profile.

Modify Part Height: Modify the depth of the chosen instance. It will shift the faces of chosen instances to the specified height from the ground plane.

Fix Ground Plane: A tool to opt for the new ground plane for the specified instance.
