Re: Door swing in plan

This thread is most useful. Just one question. An open door blade appears to become much broader than the door frame when the door is inserted in a thicker wall. I am guessing this is inevitable as SH3D will adjust the (entire) door according to the wall thickness(?)

Not a big deal, but I am curious whether I've missed the meaning of a property setting to compensate for this.

ok

Re: Door swing in plan

You're correct; this is a longstanding bug in SH3D.
You can circumvent this by first inserting a doorframe, then use the arrow keys to slide in the door. The frame will adapt to the wall, the door will not, and thus retain its correct aspect.

Re: Door swing in plan

Thanks, Hans. Very good. That means it wasn't just my technical shortcomings :-) Hardly a serious bug. The waterboard, sill, frame, shutters and indication of opening are more important anyway. Also it only becomes a problem when there's a mismatch between the model dimensions and wall thickness anyway. Changing the model properties is a bit cumbersome, so I guess it would be easier if the FurnitureLibraryEditor allowed for editing all properties. But again, not really a priority issue (for me anyway - more vanity...).

And as you say, there are workarounds.

ok

Re: Door swing in plan

There's no way to specify a door swing in OBJ format. The OBJ format isn't that clever! wink


Does this mean it is better to submit models of windows/doors/light-sources in sh3f (furniture library) format? And if so, is there a preferred standard for the various properties that would make life easier?

ok

PS - just realising that for instance my categories is unlikely to be to everyone's taste... - see sourceforge submission of window

Re: Door swing in plan

You can submit both files (OBJ+MTL in a ZIP file and a SH3F file) if you want!
Submitting the .sh3f version like you did for the window with sill and waterboard model is great because it makes it useful for Sweet Home 3D users until I add the model to the contributions library, and it will reduce the time it requires for me to add it to that library.
The properties you chose are good. No need to specify the value of the properties that are not mandatory or not necessary for the model you submit.
Just adding an ID could be nice to avoid your model to appear twice in the catalog once I'll add it to the contributions library. If you specify an id, please use the same naming convention like I did in contributions PluginFurnitureCatalog.properties file, i.e. yourName#ObjFileName (for example, OKH#window_2x3_frame_sill)

just realising that for instance my categories is unlikely to be to everyone's taste
As the category of a piece is not editable when it comes from a sh3f file, it's not a bad idea to use a name that will help users to find your model. But avoid creating a different category name for each file you submit! wink

Re: Door swing in plan

Very good, thanks. In Sourceforge you insist on LAL licence, but also list GPL, CC-BY and CC-0 in the directory. LAL is ok I guess, but CC-BY is more common (and emphasises acknowledgement which could make it more tempting to produce models). Preference?

ok

Re: Door swing in plan

I don't want to mix license system for a given library. It would be too complicate for the end users. I guess that for those who are not aware about free license, it must be already not that simple.
But as CC-BY seems to be more popular than LAL nowadays, I would like to write to all contributors to get their agreement to distribute their models under CC-BY too. But if I don't get the answer or agreement of only one contributor, it will become a mess. Not a very motivating task, but in case of success all the models available in the 3D models page would be available under CC-BY!

By the way, the 65 GPL models available in Sweet Home 3D were designed by me, so if ever all contributed models can be available under CC-BY, I won't mind to offer these GPL models under CC-BY license too.

PS: Before all that, I have to study in details the difference between LAL and CC-BY. wink

Re: Door swing in plan

It works from here. Does something prevent the automatic SourceForge download your end? Did you try a direct link on the download page? ok

Re: Door swing in plan

Hi
I´m having problem adding a door swing to a door. This is what I do:

1. open a .skp file in SketchUp. Export as 3D model... obj.
2. open furnitureLibrary Editor 1.19. Drag and drop the obj file in there.
3. make changes in the editor and "save library in a different file"
4. In SH3D, Furniture, import furniture library.
= THIS WORKS
Now changing the PluginFurnitureCatalog.properties...
1. Changing MyFile.sh3f to MyFile.zip
2. open/unzip MyFile.zip (makes a folder)
3. open MyFile folder
4. open PluginFurnitureCatalog.properties in TextEdit
5. making changes:

#here is the OLD file...
name#1=Doorjulia16a
category#1=Doors and windows
icon#1=/Doorjulia16a.png
model#1=/Doorjulia16a/Doorjulia.obj
multiPartModel#1=true
width#1=88
depth#1=20
height#1=210
movable#1=false
doorOrWindow#1=true
creator#1=HHG

#here is the EDITED file...

name#1=Doorjulia16a
category#1=Doors and windows
icon#1=/Doorjulia16a.png
model#1=/Doorjulia16a/Doorjulia.obj
multiPartModel#1=true
width#1=88
depth#1=20
height#1=210
movable#1=false
doorOrWindow#1=true
doorOrWindowWallThickness#1=20.0
doorOrWindowWallDistance#1=3.0
doorOrWindowSashXAxis#1=111.4
doorOrWindowSashYAxis#1=30.0
doorOrWindowSashWidth#1=110.0
doorOrWindowSashStartAngle#1=180
doorOrWindowSashEndAngle#1=270
creator#1=HHG

6. save file
7. zip MyFile folder
8. change name of MyFile.zip to MyFile.sh3d
9. Furniture, import furniture library
10. Program tells me its imported. And the sh3f file is created in "furniture" folder.

Nothing shows up in categories.

-------
So my guess is that I can not make these name changes, change a zip file to sh3f file. It has to go through FurnitureLibrary Editor. But I don´t know how to do this after editing the PluginFurnitureCatalog.properties

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards,
Haffi
