My Cutlist plugin for sketchup, which allows you to create materials lists and an optimized material layout directly from a sketchup project has enjoyed good success since the many upgrades and the release of the latest version 4.1.1 here on LJ about 6 months ago.
I track all the downloads of the plugin and it has been very steady at around 2-3 downloads every day, totalling over 20,000 downloads. I’m very proud and honored that it has achieved such modest success.
In the last two days, there has been a sudden upsurge in the number of downloads – more like 50-60/day.
Maybe someone here knows why the sudden huge interest. I obviously can’t keep track of every mention of Cutlist on the internet in blogs and forums and I haven’s seen anything in the usual spots I frequent or been informed of any recent mention of it anywhere.
Does anyone know why the sudden interest? Is it a seasonal thing? Do woodworkers get serious after Easter or is it something else.
Thanks for any ideas or hints.
