This is a wonderful tool. But is there a reason why the roundness or pipe/circle edges remain at 12? I want to use less edges but have no option to change this.

Please check pro version. You can change it there.

WritingPaperSucks is the first uncensored paper writing review site on the Internet. I do my own research on different writing services, place some orders there and share my feedback with you. Unlike most of the fake paper review sites, I do actually go through all steps of order, read all Terms of Use and other policies and try to discover all hidden rocks most services have. It is your right to believe me or not, I do not claim 100% accuracy in my judgment. However, after reading my reviews you will be able to evaluate every writing service as critically, as possible and get custom discounts for my favourite writing services. So brace yourself and follow me in this journey! Welcome to WritingPaperSucks

the extension needs to solve the case for irregular revolving shapes.


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 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!

Thank you for your opinion.

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.
