CLF Scale and Rotate Multiple
Scale and/or Rotate multiple components/groups either uniformly or randomly.
CLF Scale and Rotate Multiple

This plugin lets you scale and rotate components and groups.  You can choose between uniform or random.  On random, you can select minimum and maximum parameters.  You are also given options for scaling about the components axis, component base, centerpoint, or world axis.  This plugin is excellent for quickly scaling plants and shrubs to give them a random rotation and size.

I have tried and successfully used it in SU2017! It works great for randomizing masses of plantings. Awesome! A huge asset to my workflow!

its not compitable with SU2017

Is there any way to include the option to just scale vertically (Or in one direction)?

Hi This is a great plugin Chris Thanks! very useful and time saving! I can only imagine?
I have Sketchup Pro 2017 and just wanted to know if I am going to run into compatability issues as I see in the blurb that this plugin is only compatible up to Sketchup 2015?
Please let me know As I defintely need something that will speed up my models (I'm very slow at building them as nooby lol!)

Great tool but can you add another extension? its called Push/pull multiple

This plug in is great - saved me hrs of work .... I highly recommend if you need an random/scattered pattern

Would be perfect if you had the possibility to do 1-dimensional scaling

I cannot find any instructions for use of this plugin. Why is this often omitted? Seems like a one paragraph blurb is easy enough to include.

I'm not getting the rotation working. I use 2d and 3d shrubs and all that happens is the scaling, which is great. However the resulting view of each component is still exactly the same. Same orientation facing camera. I'm rotating the center of my components. Isn't it possible to randomly rotate each component on it's own axis? As an example, something similar to flipping on axis to make each component face differently.

Maybe the components you are rotating have the "Always Face the Camera" option turned on?
Try turning it off and it should work.

If you need rotate in other axis than Z try change "zaxis" in line
112 "vector = object.transformation.zaxis" to "xaxis" or "yaxis"

Adam K's picture

any idea how to limit this to one axis?

Hi Josh, no this does not do any tapering.  Just basic scaling and rotation.

 

Chris

Hi does this plugin allow you to Scale and taper objects Please Refer to this Post Thankyou
http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/sketchup/cWvrOqgmJec not really a review just want to make sure that this scaling does also tapering before I download the extention

Hi Henry, scaling and rotating is all that this plugin does.  It does not make copies of the selected components.  I do have a plugin called Repeat Copy that allows you to quickly place copies of a component in a model that you might look at.

Hi Chris

I downloaded repeat copy plugin but it is not working in my sketchup 2014 (window). Can you fix the issue? or guide me how to do that.

Cheers

henry k's picture

i wish this worked. it just rescales the components i've chosen without copying them

charles B.'s picture

It does work. Its for "Scaling and Rotating" not copying. You are looking for something like combo spray

Such a time-saver when placing trees etc!

But it would be nice if it would remember the last used settings.
