Announcement: Release of CutList 4.1.6
The author of the popular CutList plugin for SketchUp has just released an update which you can download here. This release fixes an issue which recently cropped up in which the HTML layout page couldn’t be generated on Windows machines. He made a few other bug fixes as well. At this time there’s no change in operation for Mac users, though.
This release will download with the file extension .rbz instead of .zip. This will make it much more simple to install if you are using SketchUp 8M2 or later or SketchUp 2013. Before installing the plugin, navigate to the Plugins folder and remove both the folder called ‘cutlist’ and the file called ‘cutlist.rb.’ Next, open SketchUp and go to Preferences>Extensions. This will be under the Window menu on PC and under the SketchUp menu on Mac (to the left of the File menu). Click on Install Extension. Navigate to the location in which you saved cutlist.rbz and choose Open. Follow the prompts to install it. Close the Preferences pane when you are finished. You should see the plugin list at the bottom of the Plugins menu. When you reopen SketchUp it’ll appear in the Plugins menu in the same location you’re used to seeing it.
If you have SketchUp 8 but don’t have the Install Extension button, you are still using an old revision of it. You should update to the last maintenance release or you should download SketchUp 2013.
The author of CutList indicated to me that he has a few more bug fixes as well as some feature improvements/additons he’s working on. He said he expects a more major release “soonish”. He decided to make this minor release primarily to fix the issue with the layout portion. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more.
