Does this extension not work in SU 2017?

When I try it it just thinks for a minute and then nothing, shift Z and nothing.


#24

It works in 2017. If you can post a picture, maybe I can help you figure out why it’s not working for you. Also, if you open the Ruby console before running it, diagnostic and/or error messages should help to determine the problem.

This solution takes only some minutes, maybe it’s worth a try…

Hello I am having the same problem as Silverback above. In the Extension manager, it says the bmp tracer is Unsigned. When I click Enable - Apply Changes - then click out and try to import my bmp file nothing happens. When I go back into the Extension Manager the BMP Tracer shows that it is disabled…? In the extension settings, I have it set as Unrestricted. Any help would be much appreciated. I am trying to add our sign onto the side of the building.


#28

When enabling the extension, are you hitting the “Apply Changes” button?


#29

You can enable the ruby console and see if there’s an error message…

Hello
I’ve installed the BMP tracer and prepared a reasonable bmp file in GIMP.
As for some other users nothing seems to happen when I use the tracer…
Here’s the png version of the file I’m trying to import and push up into a hollow tubular shape.

Any help gratefully accepted by very old newbie…

The image you posted was a jpeg … I imported it into Gimp and converted it to grayscale. Then I used the threshold tool to insure that it was monochrome. I exported it as a bmp file, but Gimp chose to make it 8 bit instead of 24-bit (this may be the cause of your problem). I opened it in Windows MS-Paint and saved it as a 24-bit color image and it worked fine.

I’ve attached the BMP as a zipped file: shape.zip (21.6 KB)

The imported results are in this model: shape.skp (142.9 KB)

This video may help …

Many thanks !
As soon as I watched the video I realized what was probably going wrong - I’d chosen a 16 bit output for my bmp file… (The file I uploaded had to beother than bmp “not allowed to newcomers”…
I’ll now have a look at the file you’ve done for me !
Once again, thank you

I don’t seem to be able to “push or pull” your image… The push/pull tool has a red cross with it meaning that it can’t work as I approach the drawing…
I’m using a free version of SketchUp make…
I’ve imported your zipped bmp (using BMP tracer) Same problem. Also, the middle is filled in and I don’t even know yet how to get rid of the filling !


#35

Did you open the group created by the plugin so you can edit it?


#36

Do you mean when using the BMP tracer? It creates a group ?


#37

Yes. Did you notice when you select the resulting object there’s a blue bounding box around it?

Maybe easiest at this point to select it all and explode it.


#38

I found the group commands in Edit - it works ! Thanks !


#39

It sounds like you would do well to spend some time watching the basic video tutorial videos.

You’re right !
