Adding "midpoint.rb" to SU Make 2017


#1

Hi, I’m trying to add the “midpoint.rb” extension to my SketchUp Make 2017, but I cannot seem to locate the relevent PlugIns folder.

I’m on Windows 10, and in fact all the Sketchup 2017 folder has in it is like 3 files.

Is it hidden someplace?

Use a zipping utility like 7-zip to put the file into a zip file. Rename it to change the file extension from .zip to .rbz. Then use Install Extension from the Extension Manager to install it correctly.

Yes, the AppData folder where the Plugins folder resides is hidden:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2017\SketchUp\Plugins

To see the folder, you can either change your folder preferences to show hidden files and folders or type %appdata% in the Start menu Search box

Old-style .rb files can be copied there if you don’t want to follow Dave’s suggestion.

This one-liner Ruby snippet, copy+pasted into the Ruby Console + pressing-enter - will open your Plugins folder for you.

UI.openURL("file:///#{Sketchup.find_support_file('Plugins')}")

Oh neat.

I managed to navigate to the directory. It wasn’t even on the same hard drive for some reason.
