insight3d - opensource image based 3d modeling software D-Studio xD Virtual Builder Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup - by daltxguy If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. CutList 4.1 was beta tested by our very own Lumberjocks and is now ready for download. It’s being released exclusively to Lumberjocks first. Note that there is now a forum on Lumberjocks for further discussion. Cutlist 4.1 has been tested with both Skletchup 7, Sketchup 8, SU2013 and SU2014 on both Macs and on Windows PCs. Installing. Running on a Mac. Someone in the forum asked a great question which I will repeat here: Q. A. Finally here are some screen shots in case you still can’t quite figure out what it does or why you would want it or can’t imagine what it looks like. Starting up cutlist.

Sculptris Hors serie : Plugins - WiP Sketchup est, à la base, un programme simple, voir simpliste diront certains (les pauvres…). Néanmoins cette simplicité n'est qu'apparente, car le logiciel offre la possibilité (à quelques initiés) de créer de nouveaux outils, de mettre en place de nouvelles fonctions. Un certains nombre de gentils geeks et de chercheurs farfelus passent donc leurs journées (et sans doute une partie de leurs nuits...) à coder pour le bien de l'humanité, et il en ressort ce que l'on appelle des Scripts Ruby. Ces petits bouts de textes, ne pesant quasiment rien (quelques Ko tout au plus) s'ajoutent dans le dossier plugin de Sketchup et donnent accès à de nouvelles fonctions au sein du programme. Malgré l'aspect génialissime de certains outils, ces scripts restent globalement confidentiels, confinés dans des forums spécialisés, que le commun des architectes n'a que peu de chances de fréquenter par accident. - Symétrie de la sélection - TIG - Purger - Matt666 - Compo Spray - D. - Grey Scale - J.Foltz - RoundEdge

overview Changes from VPython 5 VPython 6 will run almost all old VPython programs correctly without change The following details about changes may be important in a few unusual cases. An animation loop must contain a rate or sleep statement, which limits the number of loop iterations per second as before but also when appropriate (about 30 times per second) updates the 3D scene and handles mouse and keyboard events. Without a rate or sleep statement, the scene will not be updated until and unless the loop is completed. Most animation loops already contain a rate statement anyway, to make the animation not run too fast. You should use the new function sleep rather than time.sleep. You must import visual or vis before importing graph or controls or filedialog, which most users have always done anyway. Be sure to read what's new in the latest version of VPython 6. Rotate and zoom To rotate the camera around the scene, drag with the right button down, or with the Ctrl key down. from visual import *
