Trouble placing garage door

Final Garage 1.skp (2.6 MB)

Hey Everyone,

When I try to place the garage doors into the front wall it isnt working properly. It gives me a white frame but no garage door. And I also cannot place it into the Foundation cutouts I have there. Can anyone help me understand what I’m doing wrong?

Maybe @medeek can help.

BTW, please update your forum profile. It says you are using SketchUp “Free Plan” which is clearly not right. What version are you really using?

Can you turn on the Ruby Console and then try to duplicate the issue, send me any error codes generated.

In the Garage door menu are there any blank drop down boxes?

Only blank drop down box is Custom Label


#<TypeError: Cannot set the length of a zero length vector)>

@DaveR I’m using SketchUp Pro

In reading the error message it says Wall1 has a length of zero…but I mean it exists it’s there. I tried to regen it and all the walls but that didn’t fix the issue.

Another thing I noticed is that I have 8 ft wall panels and since I have a 15’ 6" garage door it always spans several panels. I went into Global Settings for Walls and changed my panel length to 16’, and regen’d all the walls but they still had 8 ft. panels.

Hopefully @medeek can chime in when he has a moment, I’m trying to create some revised plans to submit and of course time is of the essence as always

Actually, it says that somewhere in its calculations it generated a vector of zero length, not that Wall1 itself is zero anywhere. Clearly there is a situation that @medeek didn’t anticipate that triggers a bug in the code. The code is proprietary and encrypted, so only he can examine it to find the bug.

Can you post a screenshot of this garage door with its adjacent wall panels.

Are you trying to split the garage door across multiple wall panel segments?

If you are then you will run into problems. There currently is no logic in the plugin to split windows, doors or garage doors across wall panels. Each opening must land within a given wall panel.
