Add scenes orthographically by entering x,y,z offsets

AddOrthoScenes allows users to create new scenes based on the current view, by providing the number of scenes to create and the x, y, and z offsets for each new scene.  The initial offset is from the current active view, and in the case of multiple new scenes specified, each additional scene's offset is relative to the last scene created by the plugin.

This is useful for creating scene-based tutorials or anything else that needs to show a progression of steps.  It is also useful for creating fly-by type animations, where two scenes share a camera angle (relative to the global drawing axes) but have different station points.

The AddOrthoScenes menu item is found in the View menu.

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".
