Thanks for every other informative site. The place else may just I get that kind of information written in such an ideal means? I have a venture that I’m just now operating on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

When I tried to install this add on I got a warning that it was not compatible with my version of Sketchup. (SU pro 2016.) Is Bomb to be upgraded? Does anyone know of another extension that does the same thing?

Crashes on one of my models. Using SketchUp 2016 on Windows 10. Crash report was sent.

Great tool! Some rendering software doesn't read components or groups so this is awesome!

Some folks here are posting it makes their SU crash. Maybe you just don't wait long enough. Just used it to explode a 20 mb large model and sketchup was non-responsive for almost two hours but the script worked and got the job done. Kudos!

Works great for me in SketchUp2015 … thank-you SMUSTARD guys!

A simple and absolutely invaluable extension for dealing with imports from some CAD programs (eg Microstation) where nesting of groups can be many - sometimes dozens or hundreds - of levels deep.

It can occasionally take a while to explode complex geometry but that seems normal compared to manually exploding a group with highly detailed geometry. Often SU appears to freeze - but the script always does it’s job in the background and SU recovers back to normal in a few minutes.

This plugin crashes Sketchup 2015 when I run it, the object is a component with a 5 level depth of groups/components, but not particularly complex.

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".
