  • click on Plugins>DropGC
  • click on the Smustard Toolbar icon for DropGC

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".
