We ar currently looking to hire someone to develop a Plugin for us to integrate Excel document with Sketchup Pro. If this is something that you or someone else can help with please let me know:
“Excel quoting tool integration with Google Sketchup Pro”
I use Google Sketchup Pro to draw roof diagrams and measurements using top view / 2d (not on perspective). I use an Excel quoting tool (that we developed) to generate quotes. Currently I manually input the Sketchup measurements (Starter, Eave, Ridge, Valley, Roof Area) into the first page of my Excel quoting tool from which all of the other pages of the Excel document calculate and flow. What I want to be able to do is have Sketchup automatically input the measurements into the first page of my Excel Quoting tool. For example, when I measure a roof “valley”, Sketchup will automatically input that measurement into the first page of my Excel Quoting tool under the “Valley” column. So a Sketchup Plugin needs to be developed using Ruby I think. That is pretty much it. I know that there is a way to have Sketchup export into a generic CSV file but that is no good because I want it to communicate directly with my Excel quoting tool so that I don’t have to cut and paste the CSV file into my Excel quoting tool.
If this is something you can do please let me know and with estimated cost.
Ps. if you were to explain things please do it in a Layman’s term
