Way of extension works:

Draw pipes from lines Pro




Thank you for your opinion.


It uesfull for piping layout

my extension doesn't work. Doesn't it work when you have a 30 days trial

Is there anyway to make this extension run with components also ? I need to make such a design and it is tiresome to repeat the same process for all the components

I hope we can help you.

I am trying to generate pipes without thickness (just the outer mesh) and couldn't get it to do it :(
Otherwise, I could generate pipes with thickness with no problems.

Draw Pipes from Lines works just fine to create pipes. However if you want to create just plain tubes (Cylinders), you can use Lines2Tubes from Didier Bur.

can improve the corners? They don't join.

Sorry. It works without joining pipes together.

This extension is working for me in Sketchup Make 2017.

I stumbled on my first attempt by trying to convert lines in a group, but once I selected individual lines and run the extension menu option, the conversion seems to work very nicely. Thanks for the extension!

No pipes are drawn for me with this extension. The operator is called "imput[sic] pipe parameters" suggesting it doesn't even attempt to draw anything, just take input parameters. Furthermore it requires a dot as decimal separator and not the symbol SketchUp otherwise uses. When attempting to use a comma the plugins says "error ocur[sic]" without saying what the error was.

I see you copy my idea. Your opinion it's not honest.
