# This file includes a number of examples of how to use the Ruby interface
# to access a SketchUp model and perform various kinds of operations.
# To test the examples you must first load the files.
# There are two ways that you can do this.
# The first way is to manually load it from the Ruby console. You can show
# the Ruby console by selecting View/Ruby Console. (This is actually added
# to the View menu when the Ruby script sketchup.rb is loaded.) In the
# Ruby console, type the following line:
# load 'examples/examples.rb'
# If there are no syntax errors in the file, it will display "true" in the
# Ruby console. Otherwise it will show error messages and information about
# the line on which errors were found.
# The second way to load this file is to copy it into the SketchUp plugins
# directory. Any files with the extension .rb that are in the plugins
# directory are automatically loaded when you start SketchUp.
# The following line includes some common useful scripts. The file
# sketchup.rb is automatically put in the SketchUp plugins directory
# when SketchUp is installed, so it should always get automatically
# loaded anyway, but it is good practice to explicitly require any
# files that you have dependencies on to make sure that they are loaded.
require 'sketchup.rb'
# box.rb is an example of how to create simple geometry using Ruby.
# It also shows how to create a dialog box to prompt for user input
# and how to add an item to a menu.
require 'examples/box.rb'
# selection.rb has a number of examples of how to traverse the model and
# select things in Ruby.
require 'examples/selection.rb'
# contextmenu.rb shows how you can add new choices to context menus. It
# adds an item to the context menu for arcs and circles to create a
# point at the center of the arc.
require 'examples/contextmenu.rb'
# linetool.rb shows how you can create tools that respond to mouse event
# in Ruby. It defines a simple tool that behave similar to the pencil
# tool in SketchUp except that it creates finite length construction lines
# instead of regular SketchUp edges
require 'examples/linetool.rb'
# animation.rb has an example of how you can create animations in Ruby.
# It creates a simple animation that spins the view around.
require 'examples/animation.rb'
# attributes.rb shows how to attach arbitrary application specific attribute
# data to SketchUp Entities.
require 'examples/attributes.rb'
# This will set the layer of everything that is selected to
# a layer with the given name. It will create a new layer if needed
def setLayer(layerName)
model = Sketchup.active_model
ss = model.selection
if( ss.empty? )
return nil
# If there is alread a Layer with the given name, the add method on the
# Layers object will return the existing Layer. Otherwise it will
# create a new one and return it.
layer = model.layers.add(layerName)

# now iterate through everything that is selected and set its layer
for ent in ss
ent.layer = layer

# Here is another way that you could do the same thing
#ss.each {|ent| ent.layer = layer}

# compute the total area of all faces
def totalArea
area = 0

model = Sketchup.active_model

# this shows a different syntax for iterating through the model
model.entities.each { |ent| area += ent.area if( ent.is_a? Sketchup::Face )

# here is a different way you could do it
# for ent in model.entities
# if( ent.is_a? Sketchup::Face )
# area += ent.area
# end
# end
# Get the perimeter of the selected faces
def perimeter
length = 0
edges = []

# First collect all of the edges that bound all of the selected faces.
model = Sketchup.active_model
ss = model.selection
for ent in ss
if( ent.is_a? Sketchup::Face )
edges.concat ent.edges

# remove duplicate edges

# sum the lengths of all of the edges
edges.each {|e| length += e.length}

# SketchUp sets up Ruby to look for files in its plugins directory when you
# use the load command. You can add additional directories to its search path.
# This can be useful when you are developing new scripts because it can
# make it easier to load them during testing.
# This command adds your home directory to the search path. Note that this
# only works if the environment variable HOME is defined.
# $: is a special system variable in Ruby that defines the search path.
if( ENV["HOME"] )
homedir = File.expand_path("~")
$:.push homedir
