One of the beginning Ruby tutorials shows how to use the Ruby Console to set points into the SketchUp Model, and it concludes by showing how to draw a line between them.
I would basically like to enter in the point, and then have it display a mark so that I can see it’s location in the model space.
I think (but could be wrong), that this is possible because I’ve seen other plugins make a visible mark on the center point of an Arc or Circle for example.
I’m just trying to adopt this sort of thing so that I can use it for locating x/y coordinate points in the SketchUp model space.
I have a table of known x/y values, and I need to get them into SketchUp so that I can work on curve fitting options that can connect the points.
In the AutoCAD world I would do this by using the Point Function (to locate the point), and then assign a point style by using the PDMode settings, or even adjust it’s size with PDSize (which I mention just in case others are familiar with this as well).
In SketchUp, I figure that I’d be using a component for the point style. but then before I can even get that far, I first need to set the points location and make it visible some how.
I’d prefer to use the Ruby Console if I can since it seems easier to do that, and it also mimics how I used to do this using the AutoCAD command line – which I wish was also an option in SketchUp.
Does Anybody have any idea on how I can pull this off in the Ruby Script world.
