eagleUp and Sketchup 2014

Sketchup 2014 changed the Ruby API that eagleUp uses, and the plugin management. I will publish shortly eagleUp 4.5 with a couple of new features, but in the meantime this is how you can make eagleUp work with Sketchup 2014 :

  • location of the Plugins folder is C:\Users\[your user name here]\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\SketchUp\Plugins
  • the folder might be hidden by your system
  • on OS X the Plugins are located in /Users/[your user name here]/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2014/SketchUp/Plugins
  • one line of the eagleUp_import.rb file needs to be modified on line 734 cmds.each do |line| becomes cmds.each_line do |line|
  • please download and use the import script modified for Sketchup 2014 at this link
  • that’s it

I have checked with the demo PCB and all was working as usual. Please report if you have any issue with the new version of Sketchup.

edit : added modified importer for Sketchup 2014

  1. Hello…

    I’m using Sketchup 4014 and eagle 6.5.0. When I import the demo to sketchup it only imports the board but not the components. It’s says:

    Eagle’up import completed

    Missing packages:

    Am I missing something?

    • eagleUp cannot find the models to place on the board. Most probably the model path you have set in the ULP general settings is incorrect.

  2. Hallo, first to say, great and useful program!
    Im using Sketchup14 and Eagle 6.5 and have a question.

    If i draw a model by myself and integrate it in my board, i see all the Tape measures. Is there a possibility to remove them while/before importing the board to sketchup?
    The only way i would know is removing them in the original model (but maybe they are needed later, etc.)

    Best regards from Austria
