Same problem here. I also use SU 2013. Tried the version from Smustards homepage but gets the following error message:
Error Loading File (...)/Plugins/smustard_Weld/weld.rb
uninitialized constant Smustard::Submenu
Error Loading File smustard_Weld.rb

Please try downloading it from Smustard again. Make sure any previous downloaded files are removed to prevent errors.

A little late in the game but I just wanted to report that it worked. Thanks for a very useful plugin!

Excuse me, i got this message when instal this plugins. What is that mean? Thx you so much.

It means that SU 2013 doesn't like a code block that should work fine (and does in 2014). I'll get it updated ASAP.

EDIT: file uploaded for review. It should be available soon. Meanwhile, the version on Smustard is working.

Thanks,
Rick

Needs to be upgraded for SketchUp 2014

Smustard Team's picture

It has been tested with SU 2014 and works as intended. What "upgrades" does it need?

I love it, stops all the lines when extruding with no need to soften or smooth.

One of the most useful tools in SketchUp! Great!

thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Got error when I tried Extension Warehouse (something not found, sorry lost it was). Downloaded, put in plugins folder, changed file extension to .rb, get the following when I tried to load Sketchup

C:/Program Files (x86)/SketchUp/Plugins/Weld.rb:1: Invalid char `\003' in expression

Don't change the file extension. An .rbz file is not the same thing as an .rb file, and SketchUp won't be able to read a renamed .rbz file (as you found out).

If you need help with how to install .rbz files, you can see our faq page at Smustard.com ( http://www.smustard.com/faq/1 )

Initially worked. Now doesn't even after a reinstall. An exploded circle for example won't weld but if 2 consecutive edges are selected they will weld.

There was a missing symbol in 3.0.2, but this has been fixed in 3.0.3, and welding closed shapes works again.

Doesnt seem to work!!!!

Must-have plugin! In fact this should be included in Sketchup itself since curves can be exploded without a plugin.

Thanks for this small plugin, I already have used it a couple times.

Must have plugin. (This should be a native function of sketchup)

Hopefully all other smustard plugins such as make faces will come to the extension warehouse

Thanks!

Smustard plugins add command features to simplify repetitive or difficult modeling management tasks - just ask the thousands of users in over 80 countries across all 6 continents! Smustard began in 2006 with the intent of providing quality plugins to the SketchUp community and to help spur development of the SketchUp Ruby API. Smustard continues that effort through the work of the Smustard Team and the guest authors that post their plugins and help contribute to the SketchUp Ruby community. In case you're wondering, the name "Smustard" is a play on words related to our beloved SketchUp. If you remove the letter "S" from both words, you get "mustard" and "ketchup": popular condiments in American culture. Incidentally, the "Sm" sound is pronounced like that in "Smith" rather than "S-mith".
