Topic tags/keywords: cutlist

I’ve been using Sketchup and Cutlist and Materials 3.3 to layout the walls for the houses built by Habitat for Humanity here in Louisville, Kentucky. You wouldn’t believe how fantastic Cutlist is – we can pre-cut all of the parts for an entire house with no waste!

However, the reason that I’m writing is that I’ve been trying to upgrade to the newer version of Cutlist (4.0.7). I keep getting an error that says that there are no components selected. I’ve tried several of my own models (which all work with version 3.3), and I’ve also tried downloading a random model from the 3d Warehouse, selecting components, and I get the same error message.

I’m using Sketchup 7.0.10247 on a PC with Windows XP Pro, and don’t generally have trouble downloading plugins and getting them to work, but I’m stumped on Cutlist 4.0.7! Any ideas?

Thanks,

p.s. to LJs – I’m new to blogging, so I originally put this item as a response on a previous topic. I finally realized that I needed to create a new topic. Sorry for the confusion.

Is that listed on the page of common known issues at their site?

I have only recently started using SU and have not got as far as using the Cutlist plug-in. I would set up an account (free and easy like LJ) at the Google SU Forum and you can ask them. The crowd there is as fanatical and friendly about SU as the LJ community is about woodworking.

if you find the topic here. the author stated that you need to delete your old cutlist plugin files before upgrading to 4.07. Since he is not maintaining backward compatiblity between major revisions some of the old files may be interfering with the functionality of the new plugin.

here is the lnk to the authors support posting in the forum

-- If you can't build it, code it. If you can't code it, build it. But always ALWAYS take a picture.

Hi. One of the suggestions was that I need to delete version 3.3 before installing 4.07. I have been deleting both the CutListAndMaterials.rb file and the folder cutlistui from version 3.3 in the plugins folder before installing both the .rb file and the new folder from version 4.

Magic! With Sketchup closed I deleted 3.3 files and folders and loaded 4.0 files and folders, then started Sketchup, and now I have components! Good learning value for the future. Thanks! I’m looking forward to all the new features in 4.0.

Darn – just went in to test to be sure 4.0 was working, and I’m actually still getting the same error – I didn’t go far enough when I tested the first time. I select Cut List from the Plugins menu, get the UI screen, select web, uncheck sheet and uncheck parts, leave compact selected, then run, and I get the error “No Components found in your model”. My selection is actually many components, nested, and I don’t have any trouble with these models in 3.3. Any other ideas?
