Ropefall for Sketchup – A newest sketchup extension

Rajib Dey : Editor-in-chief

Balazs Torma develops Ropefall for sketchup. The plugin supports SketchUp 2015 and SketchUp 2016. This sketchup plugin is used to develop and design the model of realistic ropes, cables, wires with physics simulation instantly.

The algorithm simulates a rope that drops downward to bottom through a custom spring based physics model. The two ends of the rope won't go down as they are fixed. The falling rope is obstructed by hurdles in the way.

1. Turn on the line tool and sketch a polyline characterizing the preliminary shape of the rope.
2. Turn on the select tool and choose the polyline.
3. Click menu Draw → Ropefall → Fall.
4. Identify rope parameters and click the 'ok' button to begin simulation.
5. Wait unless the simulation is finished or discontinue it with the Esc key.

TIP: The simulation process can be more speedy if hiding parts of the model that (presumably) does not block the rope from falling.

One cab use a free version for three days as well as purchase a licence for USD 15. See www.sketchrope.com for further details.
