Gems are normally distributed from the RubyGems.org server, but
https://rubygems.org/search?utf8=✓&query=paracloud
gives no results.

Can you explain a bit more about this gem ? What does it do ?

It a 3d parametric generative tool for 3d printing. It is usable with sketchup. I have found multiple tutorials on it on youtube and a mac download link. However none for Windows.


thankyou for the reply!

I am sorry to bother you with this topic, but somebody must know something. ‘Paracloud GEM’ for me looks like one of the most advanced Sketch Plugins ever available. But this great, great plugin which partly adds ‘Grasshopper’ abilities to Sketchup seems completely vanished from the Internet. No download option nowhere, even no old files for earlier Sketchup versions. Any information is helpful! Cheers!

This is the 1st I’ve heard of it, although there was a previous thread here on it.


The YouTube videos show an old version of SketchUp pre version 2013 (when the icons changed.) Other posts on the web indicate it was circa SketchUp 8.

The Paracloud.com website is nothing but a static webpage, that says “© 2006-2012”.

Looks as though the project may have been abandoned, or perhaps sold to some other company ? (Just guessing.)

The last tweet was in Feb of 2012:

The download link does not work:

The online User Guide is still there:
