Sketchup 2013- where are my shop drawings?
« on: January 30, 2014, 11:04:31 am »
So I got a new computer, and got the new sketchup program whether I wanted it or not.  Put the TF rubies on, they showed up where they were supposed to- but when I select 'make shop drawings' nothing happens.  Anyone have a clue where those are going?

Did you install the rubies using the extension wharehouse? Or just copying them into the plugin folder?

You should get a dialog box asking where you want the part saved. If not, something is broken.

Thanks Mike, I installed using the warehouse-- all of the other options show up (make joint, show peg, etc) and shop drawings does too just dosn't seem to go anywhere, and there is no noise either.  Weird.  I guess I will try uninstalling and reinstalling.

So I uninstalled both sketchup and the rubies and then re-installed them.  Same thing- should I take this up with Trimble at this point I wonder?

Nothing at all.  The component highlights edges in blue, I right click, select Make shop drawings and then the RC menu disappears and nothing happens.  The selected component remains edged in blue afterward. I was able to use it on last version, select the object, make shop drawings and a window would come up with the layout view overlaid by the dialog box for saving options- with the update I got nothing.

All right- this is getting a bit crazy.  I have a brand spanking new computer out of the box, put sketchup on, put TF rubies on and the same thing happens- click on make shop drawings and get nothing.  The button is not grayed out, it closes the menu but then does nothing.  GAH!

It might be a permission issue. Are you running SketchUp as an administrator?

I'll email Clark and let him know about this thread.

I'm having the same experience -- loaded just fine and appear to work but I get no shop drawings.
