Creating Number Array

sketchup

#1

Hello,
Is there a way to automatically show a sequence of numbers in SU? I would like to number the RU sections in a 19" rack.

Thanks.

Nothing native. It would need a Ruby extension.
Check Extension Warehouse or SketchUcation PluginStore.

Thanks Dan.

Too bad. I also needed for numbering terminal blocks

A quick look in both Sketchucation Plugin Store and Extension Warehouse searching for ‘auto number’ or ‘auto numbering’ didn’t find anything for me.

Looong ago someone wrote an incrementing text plugin [TBD at Smustard.com ?] to add numbers that incremented - e.g. risers on a staircase…

It’d be easy enough to rework it to make some flat / gluing 3d-text objects placed at the picked-point, which increment at each pick…

But it won’t be ‘free’ as it involves some not inconsiderable work…
So a manual solution is the best bet at the moment !!

Kinda missing this in SketchUp, but probably more needed in Layout.
