Layer information

Postby bfc911 » Wed Jul 08, 2015 2:38 pm

Hi Dean,
I have spoken to Drew and he has informed me that you will be able to accommodate my request. I am after the layering structure and naming that you have created. Also any layers items that fall under your grouping structure this will allow me to how i can work in any missing layers that I would require without changing the current plusspec layering / grouping structure this way any future changes will be seamless. I would much rather do it this way than change plusspec to my current structure. I will also post a few suggestions with the layering under the suggestions tab.
regards

Hi,

You can get the information that you are after by using the scene creator tool on the PlusSpec Toolbar. If you create all the scenes and then go to the 'all' scene tab and then open up your layer manager you will find all of our layers and naming.

Kind Regards
Dean

Hi Dean,
Thank you I am aware of this however I do not want to draw every component wall door etc to see what each layer name is created and what layer grouping is created. I am sure when a component item is created you would have a layer convention setup as to what name it falls under etc. If you are still unsure please have a chat with Drew hew knows exactly what I am referring to.

cheers

Hi,

If you go into a tool you will notice that under 'Layering' you can see the layer you are about to draw with. This layer can be changed to any PlusSpec layer.

Kind Regards

Hi Dean,

I also would like some sort of reference to the complete PlusSpec layer naming list.
I understand this would be a list that may have changes from version to version.

The reason this is useful to me is assist understanding the complete PlusSpec philosophy in relation to layer naming at a glance.
It is also important to me in order to plan multi plugin workflows, ensuring that each plugin plays nice with each other and with my requirements.
Maybe add it to release notes for each version ??

You are right it easy enough to reverse engineer your layer naming so i am about half as happy to do that, if it is not a published resource.
Please advise.

Cheers
John

the previous list was generated as the output of the following ruby command entered into the Ruby Console
Code: Select all
Sketchup.active_model.layers.each do |layer| p(layer.name) end
