Eneroth Slicer
Slice entities in two using section plane.
Eneroth Slicer

This plugins slices all entities in the currently opened drawing context using a section plane and separate the geometry into two groups.

This can be used both to create section drawings of building, and to use the Section Plane Tool as a modeling tool for creating volumes.

This is a quite simple little plugin that directly modifies the geometry. If you want to display cut surfaces without altering what is being cut, want to have numerous views with different section cuts in the same model or want control over cut surface appearance I would recommend using Skalp.

The plugin is called from Right click > Slice on Section Planes or from Extensions > Eneroth Slicer with a Sectin Plane activated.

If the 14 day trial license does or does not work, you are welcome to comment here and tell me. I'm still figuring out whether the licensing API of SketchUp actually works.

hi I just paid for the plugin, and when click install within sketchup, it went to page not found. so I paid for nothing? please help with the download and installation. thanks

You must start SketchUp, open the internal Extension Warehouse browser and install it from there. It is a bit confusing; I din't make up these rules :/ .

Is this a one-seat license?

Eneroth3's picture

One license can be used on two computers, just as with normal SketchUp licenses.

hi eneroth

I installed it after I purchased it. but, i can't see 'eneroth slice' on toolbar.
i can see it only extension menu tab. and it was gray.
i dont know how to activate this plug-in

so... Of all your answers,

'Select a section plane prior to running the command. Without a selected section plane the plugin doesn't know what to cut from.'

and I tried, but it doesn't work

how can i run this plug-in?

Hi

To show the toolbar, go to View > Toolbars and select it.

There is a bug in SketchUp for Mac that prevents the enability state of the toolbar icon and menu entry from updating. If you are using Mac I think switching active tool should update this state.

hi

i tryed to show the toolbar, go to View > Toolbars and select it.
but i can select it, because it can't be seen.

and
i use window10, skp2018 for korean ver.

ㅠㅠ

Just bought and paid the plugin but it is greyed out....

Hi Eneroth,

Purchased and installed the Slicer since the trial version was not working, but when i activate it as instructed via the section plane, i get a message saying "Eneroth Slicer isn't licensed". Exited and reestablished Sketchup, but it still is not working. Any ideas?

Hi Tony

Several other users have reported the same problem. It appears to be an issue in Extension Warehouse and I've already written to them to have them look into it.

For now there is not much we can do but wait I'm afraid.

Thanks

i have the same problem...

Romain J's picture

No news yet, i'm stuck with my project :). I hope that they will patch this soon...

I am having the same issue. Just purchased it today.

I installed the trial version for sku 2017

Hi Robert

You are at least the 4th user with the exact same problem in the last 24 hours. This appears to be a bug in SketchUp's Extension Warehouse licensing system. I have contacted the SketchUp team and hope they can look into this at the beginning of next week.

Thanks

Robert K's picture

Thank you.

Robert K's picture

Can't get the trial setup to work. Keeps asking me if I want to get a license.

Romain J's picture

Hello.

I've just bought your addon but when i use "slice" it's say that i've no license and it can't be activated.

Thx for your future answer and solution.

Sketchup 2018

Installed by the Extention Warehouse

Hi

Other peoples have a similar problem right now so I'm suspected there's a bug somewhere in the EW licensing api.

Did you install a trial prior to buying the license or did you buy directly?

Romain J's picture

I've buy directly from the extension warehouse and i've never used trial.

Eneroth3's picture

Thanks! That rules out one possible cause of the issue.

I am using 2018. Doesnt seem to work properly. when I click slice it butchers it. Doesnt cut even, or even where i tell it to cut.

Eneroth3's picture

I can't see any difference in SU 2018 from previous SU versions. Could you share your model?

Olá, meu nome é ATTY, Adquiri o seu plugin eneroth slicer, instalei ele mas não funciona, por que ? Ele aparece nas extensões mas está tipo em branco.

Hi, my name is ATTY, I received your plugin eneroth slicer, I installed it, but it does not work, why? It appears in extensions but is blank, I tested it in Sket 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Hi Julia Christina Eneroth, well I tried to buy your plugin but it did not accept my international MasterCard credit card. Difficult. There is nothing wrong with my card and I want to buy your plugin. Is there another way to buy it?

Eneroth3's picture

Hi José

There seems to be a bug in the payment service that prevents people with non-english characters (é, å, ä, ö etc) in their name or address from purchasing. I think a bugfix is on its way but don't know when. You could also try using another card, e.g. borrowing a card from a friend.

JOSE CARLOS S. JESUS's picture

Hi Christina
Although my card has no problem whatsoever the system says: Card Number Invalid. Can you inform me an email so I can address this issue?

JOSE CARLOS S. JESUS's picture

Hi Julia Christina Eneroth. My name on my credit card has no accent. The card company informed me that it did not block any purchase operation. Bug has it for sure. There is nothing wrong with my card and I want to buy your plugin. Is there another way to buy it?

Eneroth3's picture

I've been in contact with the extensibility team about the issue and they are working on it. I only sell my extension through the EW so unfortunately there is no other place to buy them. Have you tried using a different card? Perhaps a friend could buy the plugin and you could pay them in cash?

Hi Eneroth, I just want to add I've been trying to buy this extension for the past hour and it still does not accept my Australian Mastercard either. My name does not include any odd characters yet it still gets "card has invalid number". My card works fine purchasing other things. Frustrating.

Eneroth3's picture

That's sad to hear. I've contacted the SketchUp team ago to see if they have any news. For now the only solution i can think of is for you to try another card, maybe borrow from family or a friend and then pay them cash.

Yellow D's picture

I would pay all your plugins, however without paypal i will not find the way to pay. you make really useful plugins. my hope trimble support in the future paypal,too.

Eneroth3's picture

I may use a different, more user friendly, store for future plugins but haven't had the time to look into it yet. For now there's really nothing I can do to support PayPal. Perhaps you can borrow someone's payment card and pay them cash?

Yellow D's picture

Christina, not really, i have an other solution that i would write you as email or in sketchucation forum as PM

Same problem, installed the trial, (from the extension warehouse) and noted that it was listed in my installed extensions, however the menu item is not available i.e. it is there "Enroth Slicer" but greyed out.

Eneroth3's picture

Same answer: You need to select a section plane before you can active the plugin.

trial doesnt work...

Eneroth3's picture

If it's a licensing issue, please make sure you installed it from Extension Warehouse within SketchUp and that you are signed in in SketchUp.

After purchases a license for Eneroth Slicer and then installed extension but I can't use it please advise.

Eneroth3's picture

You need to select a section plane to slice with before using the plugin.

I tried to update to the patched version through the Extension Manager and got this error message: "Failed to update Eneroth Slicer. Unable to read extension archive."

Of course I can delete the original version and simply re-install the new one, but though you'd want to know.

Eneroth3's picture

I've never seen that error message before. Maybe EW and SU treats licensed extensions differently for some reason.

Thanks for notifying me!

Max C.'s picture

great plugin, worth the purchase - however at the moment Sketchup crashes if used inside a group.

Eneroth3's picture

Thank you for notifying me! There was a typo in the code that has now been corrected and submitted to review. I hope the fixed version will be live in a day or two.

Max C.'s picture

excellent! thanks

Eneroth3's picture

The patched version is now available for download.

Hello, i coudnt buy this extension, always says invalid card number... Any idea? ty:)
