Topic tags/keywords: sketchup plugin cutlist

I have just upgraded my computer and installed the 2017 Sketchup.

I have used Sketchup for years, and really become a fan of the ‘Cutlist plugin. It will lay your parts out on lumber and calculate board feet. If you name a part with the word “sheet” in it, it will be able to lay those out on plywood for you at the same time.

This plugin does not seem to work with 2017 Sketchup. I am crushed.

Do any of you know of another plugin with the same functionality?

Works fine for me too—same version as lew. If you had an older version installed and working first (probably not if you are installing on a new computer), I think that you may have to reinstall or enable plug-ins when you install a new version of Sketchup. In fact, mine prompts me every so often telling me that there are plug-ins that need to be enabled.

Note: I just looked at Cutlist in the Extension Warehouse and it says it is compatible with the 2017 version.

Hm..funny. when I go in to the library it shows it is installed, but it does not show up in my extension manager. If I click uninstall in the extension manager it just says it can’t uninstall for some reason (yes, those exact words!).

I will have to try and get my hands on the file ijtself and see if I can manually install maybe.

Maybe download it again then use the .rbz installer. The installer is located on the menu bar at Extensions/Plugin extension loader/Install single plugin/extension

Thanks guys. I was able to go on another computer and download the .rbz file, then install it manually. Seems to have done the trick. I am whole again!
