It has been a while since I last posted anything on this blog, and I really should try and post at least once a week. Will try to do so in weeks to come. Since the last time I wrote anything I graduated from University of Ljubljana Slovenia in civil/structural engineering. My final thesis was called: Development of a software tool for creating integrated models in Sketchup.. I defended it on June 29th in Ljubljana, and received a top grade for it. Basically the thesis was written about two software programs I made and shared on this blog. One is OnTime scheduling tool made with Adobe Flex 3.0 Framework and second is OnTime5D, a plugin for Google Sketchup for creating 5D animations of building process inside Sketchup according to a selected building schedule. I would love to enhance both of this programs in the future, so if anyone out here is interested in doing something in this way please drop me a line!
Secondly I would like to share some words on iOS development. I started developing applications for the iPhone and iPad almost a year ago. It was the first time I used any traditional programming language where you actually have to take care of the memory yourself. But I have to say that I like iOS SDK a lot, and was quickly able to build some very interesting applications. The most recent one will soon be sent to Apple for their approval, and hopefully it will be on the App store in about 1 month.
Hopefully see ya in a week 🙂
I just tested the OnTime5D plugin on the newly released Sketchup 8, and it works without a problem. Sketchup 8 was recetly released by Google and can be found on http://sketchup.google.com/.
In the video below, you will be able to see how you can make a simple animation with OnTime5D plugin for Sketchup. In this video, we will first create couple of 3D objects in Sketchup, then we will connect 3D objects with schedule made with OnTime software (found on http://www.tdteam.com/ontime/). Then we just specify duration of animation and then play or animate it.
Just wanted to add a quick note, I have successfully tested OnTime5D Plugin for Skecthup on following OS configurations:
(1) Mac OS X 10.5.8, Sketchup 7.1
(2) Windows XP, sp3, Sketchup 7.1
There was a bug in the previous version of the UI (webDialog), so there is no need to update the plugin itself. It was a problem in Windows Flash Player, and has now been solved.
If anyone try’s the plugin in any other environment please leave a comment.
You can find Plugin on this address:
(Zip contains ontime5d.rbs and a sample Bridge model ready for animation)
