Version 1.0.3 - 01.26.2023 - Added the EOR tab to the Project Information tool. - Added the AOR tab to the Project Information tool. - Added the Title Block Tool to the main toolbar. - Added a parametric Title Block tool.
Let me know what you all think of this feature. Again I don't believe this should replace a proper Title Block in Layout but it will offer a quick and dirty solution in SketchUp for those who don't need or want to go into Layout.
I should probably also put out a short tutorial video on this feature and now it integrates with the Project Information data.

First look at the Title Block tool in action:
Note that these title blocks are being drawn in SketchUp not Layout so they may only have limited utility but I think they still may be useful for those wanting to quickly throw together something for presentation purpose.
The Customer, Architect/Designer and Engineers data is pulled as the default but all of this information can be customized completely.
I call this title block a "no frills" title block, just a functional element that is simply meant to convey the most basic information.

First look at the project info tool:
I still have some major changes for the General tab. First and foremost I want to try to incorporate an interactive Google Maps window with a button to auto-geo locate based on the address that is input by the user. Then also have the ability to zoom the map as necessary and refine the geo-location on the map. Using the Google maps API I should be able to get the lat, long and elevation (which will be important for the determination of other site criteria).
I've already done a good bit of programming using the Google API's on my website (running on my server) but this is something a bit new so I'm still uncertain if it will work within SketchUp. This should prove to be interesting.
