Cut List Plugin Installation
I’ve been contacted by several folks who have had difficulty getting the CutList plugin to work. The problem seems to come from the way they are installing it. Here are some screen shots that will hopefully help.
When you open the ZIP file you should see something that looks like the above image. There is a folder called ‘cutlist’ and a file called ‘cutlist.rb’ This is the exact structure the files should have when extracted to the Plugins folder. The contents of the cutlist folder must remain in the folder for the plugin to work.
Edited to add the following:
When you finish extracting the folder and RB file to the Plugins folder you should have something like this: C:Program FilesGoogleGoogle SketchUp 8Pluginscutlist for the folder and C:Program FilesGoogleGoogle SketchUp 8Pluginscutlist.rb There should be no folder level between Plugins and cutlist.rb or the cutlist folder. On the Mac it is Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 8/SketchUp/Plugins/cutlist and /SketchUp/Plugins/cutlist.rb.
The above shows the contents of the cutlist folder. These are the only files that should be in that folder. After installing the plugin, reopen SketchUp and check the Plugins menu for the CutList entry. It should work just fine. Although I made these screen shots with the PC, the same structure applies on Mac.
