useful plugin!

The extension nz_RunningTape is very handy and easy to connect. You have given all the necessary features of the running tape. Being able to measure the piping from node to node allows determination of slope gradient. Thank you for the post.

I got the knowledge of working of containers with the root behavior with the kernel. run 3

This is a very handy plug in. I'm using it to model site drainage where I'm given a starting point elevation and ending point elevation and some unknown length of drain pipe between the two points. Being able to measure the piping from node to node allows determination of slope gradient. Very useful in the work I'm doing.

One change that would be helpful would be the ability to toggle between running and post to post dimensions with the same tape.

Thanks Robert,
I much appreciate your feedback, and I'm pleased that it's useful.
Your review has prompted me to investigate your suggestion and I have since added a fourth "tape type"
which concurrently displays both a 'running dimension' and 'post-to-post' (in brackets) underneath.
Version 1.2.0 includes this update.
Regards Natale

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.....
