I have just completed a SketchUp Ruby script drawing tool called Drawer Side.
Drawer Side creates the Drawer Side component of a traditional drawer, including front and back tails and dado for the drawer bottom to ride in. A Left Drawer Side instance is placed at the model’s origin. This instance can be copied, placed and mirrored (flipped) to create the Right Drawer Side. From there the front and back can be easily created using the Intersect Faces tool.
The tool’s Drawer Side command shows up in the Draw menu and also on a tool bar called Construction Plus (I have a series of tools that exist on the Construction Plus toolbar which you can get from my website www.srww.com and www.srww.com/blog).
The tool’s human interface is user friendly and allows for the quick creation of multiple drawers such as for a high boy. I am looking for people to test drive it and let me know of any problems they encounter. the zip file can be downloaded by following this link: http://www.srww.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/drawer_dovetails.zip
Thanks for the help.
