Urban planning and solid qualities


Hello everybody. My greetings to the old school who shared the first experiences with SU, back in the 90s.

Q1- Is there any add on or Ruby plug-in for urban planning with SU?
Q2- Is there any plug-in to give physical properties (non merging, solid qualities) to SU components or groups?

Thanks a huge lot to all.

I’m happy to be back.


Q1: Modelur.
Q2: Depending on exactly what you’re after, yes. Take a look on the Extension Warehouse as well as the SketchUcation Pluginstore.


Thank you Julian, I appreciate your reply. I have been away for quite a while, and I have engaged in a project which will require both kinds of resources.

You see, I once used A-Libre which had components behave like solid pieces within the 3D environment. That is, components or groups did not merge into one another, but “bumped” and were stopped by the boundaries like they were physical boundaries. Gears and levers actually pushed and made other gears spin when engaged. That way a designed gearbox would always behave like actual gears making the end shaft spin at the proper calculated speed.

Of course we have the snap points in SU, but I need pieces and components and groups to show actual solid features, so I may not have them fit beyond specific tolerances.

Have a great day.
