Just awesome! Thank you so much for this extension!
Even with having revolve, line extend and fillet functions is so handy, nevertheless it has much more that that. A must have!

I can't find the function of Looking for the center of the circle? That is very useful

When I go to install it says,
"This extension will have the ability to access the filesystem on your computer. Do not grant access to this lightly; be sure you trust the author."
Exactly how are we to find out whether to trust the author?

Window is opening but no button work, even if I run it like an administrator or install the tool using the 'install extensions' button that comes with SketchUp. Menu >> Window >> Preferences >> Extensions >>Install exetension.

Buttons are there,but are not active

GOH CH's picture

issues with buttons not functioning can be solve in 2 ways;
1st: install the tool using the 'install extensions' button that comes with SketchUp.
i.e. go to menu >> Window >> Preferences >> Extensions
you should see an 'Install extensions' button at the bottom,
click on that and then select the 1001bit_freeware_v1.0.x.rbz file
That normally solves the issue.

If that doesn't another possibility is that there is a character in your username that is causing some issue with the program path;
you can by pass that by moving the 1001bit_freeware folder to c:\

Find your 1001bit_freeware folder; for Windows, it should be at
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins
then move the 1001bit_freeware folder to c:\ directory.
i.e. the 1001bit_freeware folder's final path is c:\1001bit_freeware

This should by pass the special character in the path.
please note that you need to keep the 1001bit_freeware.rb file in the plugins folder. Move only the 1001bit_freeware folder.
that should solve the issue.

Thank you. This post help me to resolve my problem indirectly. I had installed Sketchup 8 and sketchup 2014 before. While I tried to reinstall the same plugin again in Sketchup 2015 . The icon does not show up by itself.
I copy the same plugin (101bit_freeware.rb and sub directory of \101bitfreeware)
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\SketchUp\Plugins
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins
and all icons work perfectly.

Do you provide any tutorial on how to use your plugin. It seems great, but if you don’t know how to use it, it is just a load of icons. Please send me a link to any video tutorials. Thank you.

GOH CH's picture

Hi we don't have a tutorial for freeware version; but you can download the tutorial for pro version here : http://www.1001bit.com/pro/1001bit_pro2_user_guide.zip
most of the tools works the same.

New to SU & using 2014 Make on windows XP.

Looking for some help, as when I install this extension I loose the images from the buttons. (even the images from the standard SU buttons). When I turn the extension off the images on my standard buttons return. Any Ideas as I would really like to the extension as it seems to be very powerful.
