LibFredo6
LibFredo6 is a companion Library required by all my scripts.
LibFredo6

LibFredo6 is a shared library used by some of my plugins. It is NOT a standalone plugin. Plugins currently using LibFredo6 are:

  • FredoScale
  • Tools on Surface
  • RoundCorner
  • Curviloft
  • HoverSelect
  • GhostComp
  • SUClock
  • FredoTools
  • Curvizard
  • TopoShaper

You need to install it and respect the versions required by the Plugins, the higher, the better. The current version level of LibFredo6 is 7.7. I maintain backward compatibility so that plugins requiring an older version of LibFredo6 should work with a newer version.

LibFredo6, like my other plugins, is hosted on Sketchucation. Sketchucation is a Community site entirely dedicated to Sketchup. It includes an ExtensionStore of 800+ plugins, as well as a quite rich Discussion Forum about Sketchup and a Gallery. Registering on Sketchucation is FREE.

IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH LIBFREDO6 INSTALLATION OR WITH SKETCHUCATION, it is advised to watch the video "LibFredo6 Installation" at the top of this page.

You can find more information on the Home Page for LibFredo6 on Sketchucation.

IMPORTANT: if you just install LibFredo6 without any of the plugins above, you will see no new toolbar in Sketchup but a menu entry "LibFredo6 Settings.." in the Window menu of Sketchup.

Reviews

I have the same problem and have tried everything I can as far as installing it, I placed the round corner file into the plugins folder (OS X) and still I can't get it to work. Help would be appreciated.

Hello Fredo,
I am looking for your:
-Joint-Push-Pull to extrude curved faces
-Round corner
I saw them previously but cannot find them anymore.
Kindly advice where I could find them or if they are part of LibreFredo and your other tool, as I saw you only have now 2 tools to download.
I am working on SketchUp Make 2015.
Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.

Amer N's picture

hi does any one have this plugin:
curviloft

fredo6's picture

Curviloft and some others of my plugins are published on Sketchucation.

You need to register to this site at
http://sketchucation.com/register.php

This is FREE.

The PluginStore at Sketchucation includes hundreds of plugins.
See http://sketchucation.com/pluginstore

Then you can
- install the Sketchucation PluginStore tool, that will allow you to install any plugin hosted there in one click. This is the recommended method.
- or download the RBZ of Curviloft and install it via the Sketchup Extension Manager.

Sketchucation is indeed no longer free. Accessed 19 Nov 2015. Choice upon registration is $15 per month for a basic plan, or the yearly fee for the "premium" plan.

how?

Harry T.'s picture

is this tool Fredo6.8 for free? i download it but can find it on skechup. can anyway help?

Neonite's picture

Thanks David B, that really cleared things up for me.

Just so everyone knows exactly how to get the library, here's how you do it: Go to http://sketchucation.com and register for free. Then go to the PluginStore. Download libFredo6. You can then download whatever other plugins you want. Then, get into sketchup and hit the window tab, then preferences. Go to extensions and hit the "install extension" button. Go to downloads and istall whatever plugins you downloaded from sketchucation.com. Restart sketchup, and you're good to go! P.S. Do NOT try to install the libfredo library from the sketchup 3D warehouse!

shirley b's picture

Life saver! Thank you. Worked perfectly

Laurenz E.'s picture

Unfortunatly registration at sketchucation.com is no longer free.

fredo6's picture

Registration on Sketchucation is Free, and you can auto-install any of the Plugins from the PluginStore.

It's only if you wish to become a Premium member that you have to pay a fee.

Thanks all esp Fredo, It your link to 6.8 worked and it works fine now. Regards,

Brendon H.'s picture

I have spent HOURS trying to figure this stuff out.!
All the instructions say to use the extension warehouse to load files BUT LibFredo6_v6.8c.rbz ISN'T AVAILABLE!!!!!!!!
So the damn application tells me to upgrade LibFred to use Rounded Corner BUT HOW for the love of god HOW!!!

Sakshi A.'s picture

.

fredo6's picture

I repeat: registration on Sketchucation is FREE and all my plugins are FREE too.

So, please, do not convey 'fake' and false information.

Fredo

DranE E's picture

Isn't free men

Pit D.'s picture

there is no FREE registration atm

David B's picture

I in no way meant to convey false information. Your plugins are a life saver and the ones I'd least be able to live without. But everything I wrote was how I had to go about installing the plugin. The extensions warehouse had an outdated version that wouldn't allow me to use Round Corner, and so I went through Sketchucation. It was indeed free, but clicking on "Plugin Store" and searching in there was the only way I could find and install the 6.8 version.

David B's picture

Don't use extension warehouse. First, go to the sketchUcation website and in the Plugins Store search for LibFredo6. This will have v6.8c. Download to your computer. Then, open Sketchup and under the "Window" tab, click "Preferences." There you will see "extensions." Under "extensions," there should be a button that says "Install extension..." After you click the button you can browse to the folder on your computer where the downloaded script is. Highlight it, click open, say "yes" to any permissions and it should load in without problems, and then your Round Corner script should work (you may have to close and re-open Sketchup).

Why the built-in extensions library has an out of date version is beyond me. I have been very dissapointed in the library compared with using the built-in installer listed above. I'd rather they just made the built-in installer easier to find.

Maridel B's picture

you are lucky, i've try so many times same as what you said but no luck at all it gave me error when i open my sketchup up.

Smith S.'s picture

whenever i open sketchup i just get this message popping up

"You must install LibFrredo6 version 6.3 0r higher to run
Fredo6_FredoScale"

I too cannot get lib credo 6.8 to load .

I am currently attempting to migrate my extensions to .skp 2015 . Downloaded the various fredoscale tools I have come to enjoy using but then comes the issue of downloading the libfredo element ..Big problem.
When I try to open for example round corner ( 3.0b) , I get a message stating that LibFredo6 - v6.8 is needed ; the current version 6.7 will not work. But then getting ahold of 6.8 is impossible Its discussed on Sketchucation but apparently not downloadable or you bounce back to 6.7 as your latest version.. What exactly is needed AND Where do I got to download it ? THANKS IN ADVANCE

fredo6's picture

LibFredo 6.8 is on the Sketchucation site at http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=323&t=17947]Sketchucation for the time being.

I will publish later on EWH

Fredo

Charles S.'s picture

I am also having trouble finding the v6.8. Did you find a solution for this?

Thanks

UPDATE:

I have installed the v6.8c.

Install this: http://sketchucation.com/resources/plugin-store-download

In the Sketchup preference, use the extension Manager to locate & install the .rbz file.

Once installed, you can now search for the libfredo files. Then click AUTO INSTALL.

Hope this helps!

great extension

Anelisa T.'s picture

Hello:
I am having a lot of trouble installing this. I recently updated to sketchup 2015 and updated the additional folder plugin. Everytime I try to install the fredo6 it doesn’t appear on the program. I have restarted several times and nothing…When I go to my extensions on my extension warehouse profile it always appears uninstalled. I don’t know what is wrong and would love to be able to use the plugins. What else can I do?

Did exactly what it said on the can! - Thank you very much for this.

I installed the "autoinstall" tool from Sketchucation and used that to do a totally trouble-free installation of the library and roundcorner tool. dead easy even for a newbie :-)
