I'd be happy if you donate a cookie (or a beer) if you find my plugins useful.

In the video, you had said right that the focus on the point who you want to connect with the cleanup and complete the project of the cleanup.

Thanks for the fantastic extension! I use it constantly. One wish is that you include an escape function in any update you might be working on. I sometimes need to abort when it's taking too long to complete. Thanks in advance.

Hello Thom, can you help me please?
When I try to open the menu window (Extensions > CleanUp > Clean...)
I get the message : "Navigation to the webpage was canceled"

Evrything works fine but this menu, so I can't adjust the cleanup settings.

I'm running SU Pro 17 on Windows 10 Home x64

Thank you!

Sounds like a problem with Internet Explorer... (which powers these dialogs.) What version of IE do you have?

Bild des Benutzers Brad H.

Dude. I don't get it. I've installed the extension. It says it's enabled. But it doesn't show up under the Extensions pull-down and it isn't in any other pull-down and doesn't show up when I right-click an object. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do. I'm in SU Pro 2018. Thanks.

Did you restart SketchUp after installing the extension? And you also have TT_Lib installed?
Any error messagess when you start SketchUp?

Bild des Benutzers Karol Z.

hello
after download and instal I cant find app cleanup in sketchup. I dont have any plugin bar on top. I have Sketchup 2017. Also PC was restarted after instal. Somebody halp me?

hi you need to down load and install the TT Lib as well.
so, scroll down this page, see the requirement.

After install, try reopen your file.

5 STARS. A great tool.

Would be helpful if there was a preliminary warning indicating the estimated time before committing to the action. Most take a few seconds to a couple minutes. Had one that said 2 hours remaining, and there was no way to bail out. Had to use task manager to shut it down. File always saved prior to running so nothing lost.

Thanks for this great time-saver.

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Unfortunately it is not possible to reliably estimate the total processing time up front. The best I can do is what it currently does - update continuously as it's working the model. (It's all just a very rough estimate.)

Note that the biggest time factor is Duplicate Faces - this is **very** slow. Don't enable that option unless you know for sure you have an issue with faces in the same entities collection overlapping each other.

Bild des Benutzers Jo W.

You. Are. So. Awesome.

I have used these tools so often and they are KEY to using sketchup for 3D printing. I cannot thank you enough.

Bild des Benutzers kapenske ..

No worries. It's a GREAT tool. Been experimenting different ways to make threaded items (bolts screws etc) so . . . . lots of faces.

Try draw whorl for threads... works so well and is very easy

Hi,

I got this error mensage:
Something when wrong trying to load C:/Users/Edu/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2014/SketchUp/Plugins/TT_CleanUp/vendor/error-handler/error_reporter.rb.
Please copy this message and forward it to the developer.

Is there anything I can do to solve it? I'm using SKP 2014

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Hmm...
Not sure what's causing that. Can you start a thread on the forums please? https://forums.sketchup.com/c/extensions
Type "@thomthom" to mention my nickname. It's a lot easier to follow up there - we can share files and screenshots etc.

Today I have cleanup one small file 2MB, which takes 6hr for "Erase Duplicate face" on. in SU2017. Why it is taking so long time for the small object to erasing duplicate face??? Is it the bug???

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Erase Duplicate faces is a very slow operation - recommend to only use it if you know you have issues with faces overlapping in the model.

It's hard to tell what is going on without seeing the model. (If you can share the model in the SketchUp forums I could take a look.)
In general, file size isn't a good measurement to whether there's a lot of geometry or not. Textures often take up a lot of a model. It's possible to have a model with lots of geometry while having a small filesize. Number of faces and edges are more accurate measurement to how large/complex the model is.

I installed this plugin with the required library and I can't see it anywhere.

using SU pro 2017

Bild des Benutzers jacubells ..

Same error. Menu not shown, Using SUpro8

I agree, I have no plug in tab. If I go to window > extension manager I can see that it is installed. I also installed the TT_Lib2 and they both show as enabled, but how or where can I open it? I simply don't see an option anywhere to open it (There's no plug-in tab as shown in the video and I don't see it in any of the other tab I have). Strange. Must be because the sketchup version I have is newer or something.

Edit: Nevermind, figured it out. On the Mac you can't just click the close button, you have to actually force quit the application and then reopen and it will be under the "extensions" tab.

Bild des Benutzers Francis Mc Shane

this is a super extension,
thank you very much.

my plugin window doesn't appear, help please !

On mine its extensions not pluging, also had to restart sketchup

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Do you mean the Plugin menu?

Bild des Benutzers Michał P

I think I have similar issue to Henrique V. I installed the newest version and the plugin's floating window doesn't appear. The plugin is only accessible from Extension > CleanUp (SU 2017 pro). Also the plugin is not listed when I right-click on toolbars freespace.

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

"Floating window?" Do you mean a toolbar? This extension doesn't have any toolbars. Only menu to access.

Bild des Benutzers Michał P

Yes, I mean the gray window that appears when you, in the movie, click on Plugins > Cleanup. In my SketchUp it doesn't appear but for me the accesss from "Plugins" is ok. I thought it could be a suggestion for Henrique V.

EXCELENTE EXTENCIÓN! GRACIAS!

firstly thank you for this plugin. I install it but i cant find. i have 2017

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Did you also install the required TT_Lib linked in the description?
Are you getting any error messages?
Is the extension enabled in the Extension Manager?

same here i can not seem to find it either and mine is enabled and i did not get any error messages and i am using a pc

Tom can you please help me? I did evething that you said to unblock my extention and I still can't use it, still shows signature is 'outdated' can you please help me? I havent use the extension for 5 weeks and I reallu need

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Setting the extension Loading Policy to Unrestricted or Approve Unidentified Extensions will allow you to load extensions with outdated signatures.

The signature system was changed for SU2017 and CleanUp haven't been updated since then.

Thank you fo your reply..
that is the issu I already did that and I still can't use the extension.
That is a issue, you have any idea what can be?

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

If your Loading Policy is Unrestricted then the signature is not related.

Hard to tell what's going on without knowing more.

1. What is your SketchUp version?
2. Are you using mac or pc? (What version?)
3. Did you install the required TT_Lib?
4. Are you seeing any error messages when SketchUp starts up?
5a. If SU2017, is the extension listed in the Extension Manager?
5b. If SU2016 or older, is the extension listed under Preferences > Extensions?
6. Is the extension marked as enabled?
7. When you say you cannot use the extension, what is it that you are observing and what is expected behaviour?

1- 2017 version 17.2.2554
2- mac OS Sierra version 10.12.4
3- I never install the TT_Lib (maybe thats is the problem) how I proceed after install?
4- no errors
5 - yes is listed
6 yes it is
7 is shows outdated signature still.. even after your intructions

THANKYOU SO MUCH,

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

7. Since you have your Loading Policy set to Unrestricted the signature won't affect anything. The message will still appear until this extension is updated.

Can you elaborate on what isn't working? From what I gather the extension is loaded. And you see the menu item under the Extension menu?

What are you doing when it's not working, and exactly what isn't working?

https://gyazo.com/e2dd2cafe5347639108d8563ca84294d
This is what happens in my case, there is nothing else I can say about it. I have the settings as you've said, still nothing changes. It's worked on another version of Sketchup I once used, but not the 2017 one.

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

That image, are you referring to the warning about outdated signature? If you have set your Loading Policy to Unrestricted it have no effect on the usage of the extension - just ignore it.

If you have problem using it, then let me know. (Please elaborate on what isn't working, what menu items you are using, what CleanUp settings you are using etc.)

1- 2017 version 17.2.2554
2- mac OS Sierra version 10.12.4
3- I never install the TT_Lib (maybe thats is the problem) how I proceed after install?
4- no errors
5 - yes is listed
6 yes it is
7 is shows outdated signature still.. even after your intructions

THANKYOU SO MUCH,

Thanks ThomThom This is awesome! It made it so I could export .stl where as before I couldnt because I think it had some inverse faces or something like that. Thanks again!

Bild des Benutzers Tom B

Hi, it tells me the signature is 'outdated'???

Bild des Benutzers ThomThom

Yea, SU2017 changed the way signatures work. Unless you have set your extension loading policy to "Identified Only" it will have no effect.

I did this Identified Only" it will have no effect. but is shows blocked

Bild des Benutzers Tom B

it was working earlier i just was worried incase it meant eventually it would stop.

Love it though!

Hi! I've used this wonderful plugin successfully on previous versions of Sketchup but have problems installing it for Sketchup 2017 (all other plugins I usually use work and install fine.) Has anyone had a problem installing and using this plugin for Sketchup 2017?
