VBO Piping

This script creates pipes from edges in selected group(s)/component(s), also adding fittings to vertices. 

Usage: 

- "Build Pipes Branch":  All inside edges of selected group(s)/component(s) will be turned to pipe with options (collection, size, type of ending fitting and continue fititng...) can be selected in an input box.

- "Branches modifier": A tool help to edit fiting. User can rotate, manual replace fittings, add/replace reduce bush, redraw branch(es)... Also can name and add color to any branch(es).

- "2D/3D": A quick switching of displaying the branches in 2D/3D view, base on turn on/off the layers "8_mep_piping2D" and "8_mep_piping3D".

- Double click (Edit Group/Component) to a branch will alow user to edit the source edges and vertices. The branch will be update to it's "settings" when user finish the Group/Component editing.
- Can make a BOM (Bill Of Materials) of pipes and fitting by using preset "PIPING" in VBO_Schedule Plugin.

Sorry bro, please check again carefully. This error is caught of another plugin: Fredo GhostComp.
Maybe your SketchUp version is lower than 2017, this plugin only works on 2017 or higher version of SketchUp.

Once an endpoint is replaced by "none", the plugin can no longer replace that terminal with another one (flange, socket, end cap)

You can unlock it by command in context menu of the edit tool.

I can' t seem to get this to work in 2018. I make a simple Grouped rectangle, and tried different ways of selecting the edges, each individually, and grouped, etc, and I go to my Menu up top and select the plugin, and the window pops up. I select different options, and nothing happens to the geometry. Would really appreciate some help!

Thx

The selection must contain groups/components with edges inside.

Ismail, I suppose you meant to write "I want to" in stead of "I wont", which is the contrary

It's perfect, congratulations
I tried it on a version of sketchup 2017 but, working on sketchup 8, I would like to know if it is possible to adapt the extension to sk8
I would be immensely grateful

VBO Solutions's picture

Sorry my friend, I don't have SketchUp 8 to test this. So I'm not sure that this can run or not.
Regards
