  1. I haven't gotten this installed yet. I will try tomorrow. Looks great!

  2. I could not get the plugin to work. It gave an error message saying that access was denied. Any suggestions of troubleshooting?

    1. Nolan,

      I think you're getting the access denied error, because you don't have file ownership on the downloaded file. On a Mac, you'll have to take ownership of the file. Also, this is not the latest version of the plugin. Do a search on my blog for "Ruby" and you find version 1.5. However, it only works on SketchUp version 8 and 2013. I does not work on version 2014 yet.


    2. great thanks a bunch! I'll give that a shot
