MAJ follow me Extension
In today’s article, we are going to discuss an extension that gives us a better follow-me tool inside Sketchup. So let’s get started!
Creating an extrusion with MAJ follow me
This extension is called Maj Follow Me. It’s a free extension and you can download it from the sketch education Wearhouse website. Basically, it creates profiles inside SketchUp. MAJ Follow Me can select a shape from a list. The shape will follow the mouse pointer in Sketchup. In any place, you click you will have a fixpoint, and a double click will make your 3D. You can add a shape to the list (and save it on the hard disk) from Sketchup group, component, or single face simply. Rotate added to Follow Me types. This extension is useful for all Sketchup users. The rotate type will be available for paid MAJ Follow Me.
Picking up different profiles with MAJ follow me
This has few built-in profiles also create Custom profiles. When you install it, you get different options. So the first option is the Draw option. The draw option is going to give you types of following me which you can use and the length and height scale of your shape which you can change and also there are some built-in profiles that include a custom profile.
Adding an object with MAJ follow me
When we activate the custom option, we can start to extrude any point. For example, by clicking the mouse we can add points then double click on the points. You can see how the points have taken profile and it is extruding it along the path. Instead of messing it around with the follow-me tool, you can just create a profile.
Changing the orientation of an object with Arrow keys
One thing you might notice, Maj Follow me has some hotkeys in order to flip the profile. By using these keys, you can set any object to flip inside your model. This can be also a good function for following around in segment curves.
Normal and Directional Extrusions – Keep Objects Upright
You will also notice, when you run this extension, there is an option called Directional. It maintains the vertical orientation. You can use this to follow along in twisting any shape. It is going to be a better option for complex shapes.
