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.

Use this script in conjunction with the Unfold Tool and you've got yourself the ghetto manual version of Waybe, completely for free!!

Installation

Download gluetab.rb and place it in your Sketchup plugins folder.

On a Mac, that's in /Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/plugins

Usage

  • 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!)
