Shape bender extension isn't working

hey i just tried and its working as you said, thank you so much once again :))

Hi all,

Just wondering if there’s a shape bender equivalent compatible with SU2021? I’m just looking to bend 3D text into a ring.

Many thanks

Shape Bender works just fine in SketchUp 2021.

You could also use True Bend if you just want a circular bend.

With Shape Bender in SU2021:

No need to do all the extra work trampy has suggested.

if you have problems with shape bender extension, you may download free Blender that have a powerful non destructive bending function on any curve.

  1. Export from SketchUp (3DS or import SKP in Blender with add-on on Windows). Then import in Blender.

  2. Use first subdivide modifier (without division, it doesn’t work)

  3. Draw curve and use curve modifier. You may change the curve or parameter and get live modification of the result !

  4. then export to SketchUp, via DAE or 3DS

You may find short Youtube tutorials.

here is an example obtained in a few minutes :

You’re right! I was struggling to add the extension and I thought it was a compatibility issue, but I’ve got there! Thank you :slight_smile:
