CLF Center on Origin
This plugin will center components and/or groups onto the model origin 0,0,0.
CLF Center on Origin

Activate this tool from Plugins>Chris Fullmer Tools>Centor on Origin.  It only works with groups and components.  It does not rotate or change the scale of the object.  This is often useful in the gaming industry where models need to be centered to 0,0,0 before exporting for use in a game.


Thank You. Excellent

Hey, i am french and will try to good translate lol in regards of what people said about this plugin, i immediately download it , BUT a window said me it could not run on my mac os Sierra 10.12.6 whith this version ( sketchup 2017) Pleeeaaase have you a solution ?
in fact i am a creator and draw in multiples positions , so sometimes i take overbrain like drunken men

Hi Chris, thx. What must i change, that the z-axis zero is on the bottom of the object and not of the center. I need this often for eagleup.

Hey Chris,

When are you planning on releasing the 2016 version for MAC?

Best regards,

It is for Mac - no ruby extensions on this site are NOT for Mac.

Doweled the file, then go to the Menu: Sketchup - Preferences -> Extensions -> Install Extension. Select your download and click 'open.' Restart Sektchup, reopen preferences, and make sure the installed extension has it's check-mark box checked.
