Glue Tab Tool
(AKA Ghetto Waybe)
Click on any "bounding edge" in Sketchup to add a glue tab!
What is a "bounding edge"? It's the edge of a face that does not touch any other faces. In Sketchup, "bounding edges" are the edges that are displayed in a bold stroke.
It sounds complicated, but it's really quite simple: A bounding edge is the only place where it makes sense to put a glue tab on an unfolded papercraft model.
gluetab.rb and place it in your Sketchup plugins folder.
On a Mac, that's in
/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/plugins
- Select the Glue Tab tool from the Plugins menu
- Start clicking on boundary edges to make glue tabs.
- You can adjust the tab width in the status bar (Thanks to Jim Foltz for this!)
