You weren’t able to load it from the user path after rebuilding? Because SU actually looks in that path and it was loading the USD exporter when I tested it.
Aha! I see my mistake. I was missing a “SketchUp” in the path, i.e. I was trying:
~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2019/PlugIns/
but the right answer (which you wrote above, I misread it) is put it in:
~/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2019/SketchUp/PlugIns/
Thanks for your patience. I will go update my README.md on my GitHub repo. This is a much more satisfying answer!
I did the same thing when I was testing this out…
Glad to hear it works.
By the way, for the USD project, you could upload binary artifacts to the Release tab. That provide a nice history of the various releases in a single view.
Thanks, will do that.
