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:

You need to install it and respect the versions required by the Plugins, the higher, the better. The current version level of LibFredo6 is 7.6. 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.

I guess you refer to my Animator extension.

It is in Beta (public) and all information and discussion is done in a dedicated public forum of Sketchucation, at http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=401

If you are not user, just create your login (it's FREE).

Is there any older installation file? I'm getting an error message ' Libfredo6 folder not found ' . BTW I'm using sketchup 2013.

Jo,

There is a major issue with SU6, SU7, SU8 and SU2013. I fixed it and republished as LibFred6 v7.2d - 01 Nov 16, but it takes a little bit of time in the Extension Warehouse to be published.

In the meantime, you can get it from the Sketchucation PluginStore

I would love to try Roundcorner and Curviloft. But to register on Sketchucation I need to pay a minimum of $15 per month. I am sure that price is a pittance in the real world. But here in Africa we need to multiply that amount with 15. Can this extensions be downloaded from Extension warehouse?

Actually, in much smaller letters, right above wherre they teoll you to pay there is a link to a free registration. Just downloaded my copy of RoundCorner.

Deon, when you register for Sketchucation and it asks you to pick payment plan, at the top of the page it says "Click here for FREE account". Click that and you can register a free account, then you can use Roundcorner. ;)

I don't have LibFredo6 Settings as a toolbar in the menu, after downloading it. I am using Sketchup 2015. Why?

You don't have it in the Windows menu? Or in the Tools menu?

After downloading it, did you install it thru Windows>Preferences>Extensions>Install Extension?

Hi, my name is Francis. Great review, right?

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

What to do then?

Then you add the plugins you require. LibFredo6 is just the base package that all the plugins need.

Hi guy, is there another way to install curviloft tool?

Another way versus ?

What works is to login to Sketchucation and download the curviloft v1.5a .rbz file. Then start SketchUp.

Go into Window>Preferences>Extensions>Install Extension and browse for the .rbz file.

Make certain you have the latest LibFredo6 installed if you're using SketchUp 2016 like I am.

Excellent tip. i was struggling with this for so long!
thanks!

I miss my RoundCorner! Is it true I can't have RoundCorner and Podium? I had both before SU2016!!!

Charles C's picture

Can't download it.. error message...

any solution ?

Nina C's picture

Did you have any luck? I am looking for the RoundCorner tool and have tried all afternoon to install it. I see LibFredo6 settings under Windows but it's not in the Extensions. Anyone? Please help.

Hi Nina -

I got it to work in SU 2016 Pro. Make sure you don't have the old plugins, delete them from users\username\appdata\sketchup\sketchup 2016\sketchup\plugins

Install the latest Fredo from the warehouse, v 6.91
Go to Sketchucation and get the 3.1 version of roundcorner and download it (it's an .rbz file)
Go to Windows>Preferences>Extensions and Install Extension and browse to your download folder and select the 3.1 .rbz file

That should work.

ahhh its ok, just had to refresh the page ^^

Chris P's picture

the joint push pull tool used to be a beautifully simple and intuitive yet powerful tool for shelling complex geometry. Now it's incredibly complex and completely unusable - I've been trying to use it for 30 minutes now and can't do anything more than shell a single face (sketchup already has this function)

why fredo, why!?

mehran n's picture

Fredo plz help me to installit i tried dozne way and icouldnt

tomasz c's picture

instal by sketchucation.com/pluginstorestore..

Why there's always an error when downloading the file?

Stephen C's picture

I downloaded it .rb and it never worked

Stephen C's picture

Where can I find joint push pull.rbz and not .rb?

Gonzalo A's picture

.rbz is like a zipped .rb
Zip the file and then change the extension to ".rbz". It worked for me.

All plug-ins. This lil beauty pops up on hitting Install/Download...
'An AJAX HTTP erro occured. HTTP Result Code:500....

How does one stay ahead of competition... when vibrant new customers starting to use your software cannot access plug-ins... It was one of the "selling points" for SU... time for greener pastures...

I seemed to have installed LibFredo6, but can't get the RoundCorner plugin to install. I've downloaded the .rbz file, but it doesn't appear in my actual SketchUp application. Help? Running off SU2016.

Brian,

Difficult to help you with so little information.

If you got RoundCorner from Sketchucation, I suggest that you also install the PluginStore extension which is there (also FREE). See all info at http://sketchucation.com/plugin/696-sketchucationtools.

Then you can install in one click any of the hundreds of plugins available on Sketchucation, including mine.

This is also where I support my plugins. The main post for RoundCorner is http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=171721#p171721. You'll find useful information from other users too.

Fredo

hello
Can you help me to install "roundcorner",
there is an error message when i click on "roundcorner" in the list.
thanks
christèle
(si vous parlez français cela serait super)

J'ai eu le même problème, je suis passé directement par le site "sketchucation". Il faut s'enregistrer (sur la page register, il y a une petite case pour s'enregistrer gratuitement, en dessous des abo premiums payants). Ensuite, le télécharger directement depuis le site sketchucation et l'installer dans SU.

Hi, I installed LibFredo6 and FredoScale, but can't find out how to install Round Corner. There is no Install button at the top right corner as with the other plugins.

Appreciate if anyone can help. This is a great tool and really need it. thanks!

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.

Hi, I am looking for Remove Lonely Vertice... Is this in this script? thank you!

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.

Fredo
