When you import contour line drawings that were executed in other CAD applications, SketchUp will often convert polyspline contours into polylines that contain hundreds or even thousands of straight-line segments. This script reduces the number of edge segments that make up the contour lines, which in turn reduces the overall file size making it easier to work with the countours in SketchUp.

This extension is an old version of SU 2015's rotated rectangle tool.  It is intended to be an example for ruby developers who want to build custom tools.  The tool enables you to draw a rectangle by first drawing the length (in any direction) and then the width (in any direction).

The Bezier Curve Tool is used to model smooth curves that can be scaled indefinitely and aren't confined to the limitations of the Arc tool, allowing for more natural and intricate shapes. 

To draw a Bezier curve:

  1. Choose Draw > Bezier Curves
  2. Click to set a start point
  3. Click again to set the end point of the line
  4. Move the cursor to adjust the first curve
  5. Click to apply the first curve
  6. Move the cursor to create the second curve
  7. Click to set the second curve
