nz_Implode

This Extension include the following two powerful tools.

 

Implode_All: Explodes all the groups/components with your drawing.  

This is particularly useful

  • If your need to clean your drawing or groups/component prior to exporting to another application
  • if you are importing external models which need to be similarly cleaned or reduced to a singular collection or entities

Implode_Selection: Explodes all the groups/components with your selection leaving everything else intact

This is particularly useful

  • if you wish to avoid the need to run Implode_All externally within another drawing just so as to protect the rest of your model
  • if you need to quickly cleaning your own groups/componenets of their sub-components
  • if your need to clean imported models that are already within your workspace.
  • Upon completion this tool gives you the option of collecting all the loose entities in a new group or releasing them.  This option means you can both visually reassure yourself that the operation was successful (via outliner) and/or ensure that none of the entities are lost inbetween the implosion and your subsequent command

Settings: 

Warning:             An optional warning can be enabled to alert your that the entire model is about to implode

RememeberMe: Settings can be retained between sessions if so desired.

 

Enjoy,

 

Why is it called nz_implode?

I've define explode as an action which reveals the contents of a group/component a la Sketchup: Explode whereas Implode can be considered as destroying the contents themselves and the shell for good measure...  be sure to create something worthwhile.

We are driven by our passion for the interpretive potential of architecture, and all that which can be designed. The relationship between people and their environment is fundamental to "Demonstrative Architecture" because architecture can be inscribed with meaning through the experience of form and function, and in this manner architecture/design can be an authentic manifestation of all that which we value and wish to be... When we are not designing buildings we are enabling creativity... I'm please to share some of our Sketchup Extensions. Design something worthwhile.....
