It appears from the extention warehouse that the plugin is installed in SU. But It can not be located in the plugins toolbar nor the View -> Toolbars section. I've installed and reinstalled the plugin again and again, restarted Su but still nothing.

Same problem here. None of Thomthoms plugins are visible in SU 2014. I didn't have this problem in SU 2013.

Installed on to SU 8 free. I can see it in my list of extensions but it wont show up in my plugins or toolbar. Does anybody Know how to fix this?

I loooove the tools and hate the quality of these videos.

I dont want to spend 27 minutes of my time watching someone tinker with the model so I can figure it out. You guys have some really impressive stuff here, for such a developed product its worth taking the time to show everyone an impressive display of architect tools in action.

can someone post the instruction for this plugin in writing? urges me to learn to use, at least some basic tips, what happens is I do not understand the English spoken.

Installed the extension. It shows up in my list of extensions but I can not find or display the toolbar. I'm running Sketchup pro 8 on a mac

I downloaded the files on this site rbz Plugins Folder SketchUp 8 and do not know how to make the toolbar appear and Architect Tools menu. How should I do to install these extensions?? thanks

I can not find the pluggin to import dwg into sketchup 2013. There was one for 7 but for this one .I can not find. Does anyone know about this?
Thank you

Couldn't install at first, but then I tried again - then it installed with success... Weird :)

i really like your tools! i have a site plan i'm working on...i draped the 2d curb line onto my design/contour grade tin..is there any way to now build up a curb on that? i tried your extrude up and drape the curb but no go ??

Need to restart SketchUp to see the toolbar, then select and deselect the toolbar under view->toolbars.

There is now an update to SketchUp 2013 available that fixes the toolbar issue. Download and install the new version to fix missing toolbars.

Regarding the missing toolbar - this is a bug in the initial release of SketchUp 2013. You can find the toolbar hidden under your existing docked toolbar. Undock them and double-click it in order to undock it.
