With regards to structural composite lumber and the new Custom Column Library. If you specify in the column name one of the following three key words, the plugin will then apply the appropriate material/texture:

LVL/LSL/PSL

Note: To call the wall_regen method:
Medeek_Engineering_Inc_Extensions::MedeekWallPlugin::Wall::MedeekMethods.wall_regen entity
where the entity is the Medeek wall group.

The column update required modifying at least 10 files and took about five days of concerted effort, some of it quite tedious and I will say boring, but yeah, it is always worth it. Basically an entire rewrite of the in-wall column module, a lot of the code under the hood was reviewed and updated to bring it up to speed with the highly efficient beam module. Now all of the menus are HTML as well.

The addition of the API took all of 15 minutes to add.

The wall justification was only about another 1.5 hours of work.

Mostly it was me deciding whether it would muddy the waters too much to go from three options to four (front, center back → front, center, back, sheathing). You will notice that when you use the draw wall tool now it will show a small text near the wall length dimension letting you know which justification mode that you are in. The placement and the size of this specific text may yet require some fine tuning, I want that information to be available to the user but I don’t want it to be so obtrusive that it is annoyingly so. Feedback required…

In recognition of the overwhelming support I have received from the SketchUp community during 2021 I will be immediately offering 35% off of the mdkBIM bundle price (permanent license) using the coupon code **GIVETHANKS21** . (promotion ends Dec. 1, 2021).

This will reduce the bundle price from $280.00 USD to $182.00 USD. This promo code does not apply to any of the extensions purchased separately or to the electrical plugin. The offer also ends on Dec. 1 and no rain checks will issued thereafter.

Version 2.5.1 - 11.14.2021
- Added a horizontal rainscreen option for rectangular walls (horizontal furring/girt boards).
- Added an option for top and bottom furring/girt boards for horizontal rainscreens.



If you set the top or bottom sizes to "zero - 0.0" then it will eliminate that respective option.

Version 1.7.8 - 11.11.2021
- Added interior footings for rectangular and polygon slabs.
- Enabled editing, moving and deleting of interior footings for all slab foundations.



Regular slabs now have the same functionality with interior footings as the slab-on-grade foundations.

Sorry I've been occupied the last few days (termite infestation).

I will get back to you on this and try and figure out what is happening.

What version of the plugin are you currently running?

Also make sure the focus is in the main window of SketchUp and not on the HTML menu.  Let me know what you get.

Version 2.5.0 - 11.06.2021
- Added a rainscreen option for rectangular walls (vertical furring strips).



!!! WARNING !!!
This update will require deleting and recreating any rectangular wall presets. This update will not affect any other preset types (ie. gable wall, shed wall, hip wall, door, window etc…)

This feature has been requested multiple times lately so I thought I might try and get a rudimentary rainscreen feature put together.  Note that the current rainscreen module is fairly simple and does not trim around openings.  If you want the furring strips to line up with the studs you can set the offset value to 1/2 of the stud spacing (or any other value for a different alignment).

I consider this feature more representational at this point but please give me additional feedback with regards to future improvements or additional options/requirements.

This potential issue can also apply to generic walls or floors.  Always make sure that your faces are oriented correctly.  The electrical plugin uses that orientation to determine how to position/rotate the electrical fixtures.  Solid Inspector is your friend, and it is one of my favorite plugins.

Click on the plane that is facing the room (facing down).  Also make sure your ceiling "group" has its faces oriented correctly.  I like to use the Solid Inspector plugin found in the warehouse.

Version 3.0.5 - 11.03.2021
- Added additional energy/raised heels for double fink truss (2 variants: wedge and slider).

Apparently when I added in the raised heel algorithms for this truss type a couple years ago I only added in the vert with strut option.  It was brought to my attention a couple days ago that the other two options were missing.  I apologize for the delay in making sure all three options were available for this truss type.  We should be good to go now with the double fink truss.
