It doesn’t seem to be available for Mac.

Yes sir, thats correct. It’s not available for mac. (edit: it now is!)
line 39 of the loader file is blocking it for running:

if (@Sket_Version < @Min_Version) || (Sketchup.platform != :platform_win) then raise Exception.new(@msg); end

The reason why is simple compatibility.
I’m not a mac user and since I’m a novice developer, I’m not rlly aware of all implications of coding for mac.
So in order to prevent unkown issues such even a bugsplat, I decided to limit my code.

Its easy to change that, just delete that line 39 and reload.
ps: I can’t pomisse it will work at all but you can try, but anyways make sure saving your project.

Maybe I change that in the future as I get more experience on SU rb API…
thx for your attention on it,
cya

Roller chain presets added:

Mariner chain presets is based on RUD’s catalog
Roller chain presets is based on FENNER’s catalog

Why? you may ask.
A: Bc between all I’ve found, their was the most complete and detailed catalogues.

Let me know if you guys find any bugs.
Now planning gears and wheels presets.

It still needs some work on verifications step, but Its getting there.
After that, here comes wheel presets.

Feel free to suggest witch tool/feature you would like to see.

NEW UPDATE:
Improved some terminology & allowed Mac users.

I decided to allow Mac users since a friend was able to test it and it seems to run fine.
Even so I let an alert at installation (for mac) to always save the project as precaution.

Thanks to Trans-Galactic Express :v:
