Isolate Selection

This is script is based on invert selection written by TIG, I just add a little function to hide selection.

Installation n using :

1. Put the script in the sketchup plugins directory (ex : C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google SketchUp 8\Plugins)

2. Restart the sketchup if it ran, fire up sketch and select any object, you'll find it in right click menu.

3. just right click, invert selection

4. To unhide all object, just using unhide all/last from sketch up function, you know how to do it right ?

Best regard

Arc Centerpoint

Right-click an arc or circle to insert its centerpoint into the model.


Put On Current Layer

Allows you to easily move entities and their nested elements (ie groups within components within groups) to the current layer


Great script that allows you to instantly align objects to the surface below. A common example would be scattering people / trees / entourage around a sloping site. With this script, just select your objects, click drop and they instantly fall to the surface below. Easy as can be!

Unfold Tool

Please see my blog for more information and to download this script. 

Sherwin-Williams Palette Plugin

Please see this page at my blog for more information.


Opens a dialog to select entities by type (edge, face, group, or instance.) This is a very basic tool (toy?), but could be expanded to include multiple criteria (such as selecting by Layer or material.)




Sphere Tool

This script adds a Sphere option to SketchUp's Draw menu.


Please visit my blog fro the latest version of all my plugins.





Add Hidden Layer

Adds a new Layer that is turned off by default - not only for existing pages (or scenes), but for any new pages (or scenes.) Should work with SketchUp versions 5 or 6.
