works fine on sketchup 2015. For those of you not seeing an 'extensions' tab, a reboot of sketchup after manual install of 'ttlib' and 'cleanup' worked for me

Hello. I cant find the cleanup extension anywhere. It does not show in my plugins menu at the top bar, or in any other menu at the top bar. How do I accsess CleanUp3?

What version of SketchUp and how did you install CleanUp? Did you install from Extension Warehouse within SketchUp or did you download the RBZ using a browser and installed it manually?

Hi, dear ThomThom, please say how to enable this plugin in sketchup 2014? this version dont have panel "plugins" (( I have looked everywhere

ThomThom's picture

It would be the same as in the older versions of SketchUp.
How did you install it, via Extension Warehouse from within SketchUp or did you download the RBZ and try to install manually?
Did you also make sure to install TT_Lib?

The extension should work in SU2013 and SU2014. Even older versions. Are you getting error messages?

PLEASE HELP

ThomThom's picture

Can you provide some more info?
What have you tried? Where does it fail?
Windows or OSX?
What SketchUp version?
Did you try to install directly from Extension Warehouse in SketchUp? Or did you use a browser to download the RBZ?
Did you install the required TT_Lib2? Linked in the description and should pop up a message if missing.

SU 2014, WIN7 64, COREL X7 dxf export

I imported DXF from Corel X7, the result itself was inexact cause of rounded edges.
Anyway, less work than drawing new completely, but after running cleanup with serveral settings the selection either disappeared or the selection is still a collection of disconnected lines, so that i have to define at least one line to close the figure. (same works without cleanup)
I understood CU3 as ->select figure ->run cleanup = well defined planar surface, or am i wrong?

EDIT: COREL export solved, export as DXF AUTOCAD R11 is nearly perfect

Great idea! But my Material window locks up after using it. I can close and reopen it but the controls within it remain locked. The up/down slider, clicking on a material, switching from textures to colors, etc are all frozen. Any ideas?

Edit: I can chooose a material from the Materials window and apply it to a face, but it does not apply the material that I chose. It seems to randomly select a different texture each time.

Edit: I’ve now used it 4 times and every time it crashes SketchUp.

Using SketchUp2014….maybe that’s the issue?

I need this. A great plun-ins!

Hi again.

When coding my own plugin I also ran into the problem that Sketchup thinks faces are co-planar even if they really aren't, but just very very close to be, and thought you might be interested in my solution.

The normals can be the same but still the faces are removed when the edge between them is. Instead for checking normals I used classify_point to see if the face are really co-planar. Here's my code.

onPlane = true
edge.faces[1].vertices.each do |i|
onPlane = false if (edge.faces[0].classify_point i.position) == 32
end#each

With a similar approach you don't need to raise a SketchUpFaceMergeError error on line 826 but can go on cleaning up the model as expected :) .

ThomThom's picture

I don't compare normals to check if faces are planar - but I take the vertices of one face - use them to define a "plane" and then checks if the vertices of the other face in on that plane.

But still there are precision issues.

Perhaps the menu item could be called "CleanUp³..." instead of just "CleanUp³" in the next version so users can see that the settings form is opened and no operations run when it's clicked. Some of these features would break some models so it would be nice to make it clear that they can be turned off. Just a thought :)

edit: oops, didn't see in the video that it already was like that.

I'm a huge fan of every plugin that ThomThom has written and released for SketchUp, but this has to be one that I can't live without. It's ability to clean only what I need out of a model instead of having to track down individual little issues is an incredible time saver. I heartily recommend this, and to be honest, all of ThomThom's plugins.
