Ruby API model.importToPoint


I have been trying to import multiple SKP files in my script to known points. The current model.import requires the user t click a point.

A method to import to a point would be useful… (to me any hoo)

something like:

model.importToPoint '*.skp' (100,200,300)

see this post


Try loading the SKP as a new component definition [rather than importing it] - referenced as thus:
that_definition = Sketchup.active_model.definitions.load(path_to_the_skp)
Look at the API docs for more details…
Now decide on its location:
some_transformation =
Them use:
instance = Sketchup.active_model.active_entities.add_instance(that_definition, some_transformation)



I show the same workflow followed by explode and purging the definition list.:

Is there an equivalent way that will also work for non-.skp files? Say, .3ds or .dae models?
