Finding and migrating components and Materials in Mac OS


#1

How does one find and migrate Materials libraries and components from SU Pro 14 to 15. when you search for the folders they do not show up, even in ruby.


#2

UI.openURL “file://#{Sketchup.find_support_file(“Materials”)}” works on mac, should also on windows…

John’s snippet will give you the path, but in recent versions of SketchUp on Mac, the Components and Materials folders are created the first time you save something to them. If you didn’t do that yet, they won’t exist. If you create them manually from Finder or the Console, SketchUp will then find and use them.

Steve makes a good point for new install on mac
UI.openURL "file://#{Sketchup.find_support_file(“OldColors”)}"
will find where the folder needs to be made…

That one is always in the User Library, just make a new “Materials” folder besides it…
