How to get model or project name in sketchup api

export

#1

I’m new in sketchup, I want to export my model using Sketchup api, and I want to export it with the project name. How I can do that?
I’ve searched and found a solution like this ,

      modelPath = Sketchup.active_model.path
      filename = File.basename(modelPath, '.*')
      outpath = File.join(Constants::OBJ_EXPORT_DIRECTORY_PATH, filename+'.obj')

but the problem in this case is if the file is not saved yet Sketchup.active_model.path will return null, so I have to think something else.

You can make your code revert to “Untitled” if the file isn’t saved. You could also force the user to save prior to exporting.

Thanks a lot , is there a concept like project name in Sketchup ?
For example in Revit there is a Document.Title which always exists .


#4

There is a field for name in Model Info but I can’t remember ever seen it used. Even for saved files it’s usually just an empty string. I’d use file name and fall back on “Untitled” when it can’t be used.


#5

It is automatically filled in when you ‘Save As…’ a component, so the component library should be filled with it…

I’ve never thought of how this field must correspond to the component name field. That’s good to know!
