Multiple paste & Distribute elevation plug-in

Finally I reach the target for what I've start learning java.
Maybe is time to start to forget, to make room for other knowledge.
This plug-in add two necessary (IMHO) tools:
1. Multiple paste (under Edit->Paste special...)
2. Distribute elevation (under Furniture->Distribute elevation)
While SH3D is a 3D software I think is must to have a complete set of tools including for manipulation in 3D.
Anyway I don't intend to spend time to write an user manual for this; Nobody read it!
So: risk, try, fail, observe & learn and try again.
You could find the plug-in here Paste special & Distribute elevation or on Source Forge.

Few screen shoot:
Insert objects in plan then select and copy (Ctrl+C) the desired object(s) then deselect them


Edit->Paste special... and insert values


This could be the results for different values and objects


Example of use distribute elevation to make stairs
Elevate one step to maximum necessary; select all steps and...


This could be the result


Of course I know someone for who will don't work but I can't help him sad
PS:
This plug-in is a little late for VeroniQ but could be useful for future tutorials.

Re: Multiple paste & Distribute elevation plug-in

Dorin,

Thanks for this useful plug-in.
I tested it and found the following problems:

1 - I open a new instance of SH3D without any furniture.
2 - I insert one (1) model and select that model. I then look at Edit -> Paste Special, but that option is still gray and cannot be used. I have to select that model and copy-paste it, before I can use Paste Special. When the copy of that model is selected and I use Paste Special, the plug-in copies the first instance of the model, not the second one that is selected.
3 - When (after step #2 above) I insert a second model and I try to copy that model, the plug-in copies the first model, not the second.

As an extra feature, it would be very nice if you could add Rotate to your plug-in. That would make it possible to make a spiral staircase (and many other things).

I'm using Windows 10 64 bit and SH3D v6.1.2

I hope this helps you.

Hans

Re: Multiple paste & Distribute elevation plug-in

@VeroniQ
I'm happy You find it useful.
I forget to mention: is localized in french (google help).
Use with caution!!
You could insert hundred pieces at once but then, if something You don't like it, You will have to make hundred undo (Ctrl+Z).
Don't forget this is a controlled paste (Ctrl+V) so will have all the original paste characteristics with good & bad.
Keep in mind two things:
1. After You select and copy (Ctrl+C)- deselect it or select other object to activate the plugin (at least on first use).
2. The number of paste NOT include the original object(s).

Re: Multiple paste & Distribute elevation plug-in

@hansmex
I'm glad You find it useful too.
@2-When You drag&drop a furniture on the plan and immediately right click to modify it You will don't find the Modify furniture menu; is the way how SH3D work; the furniture are registered when You deselect it by clicking somewhere in plan.
This plug-in work with clipboard NOT with selected items.
You have to copy (Ctrl+C)+deselect and than You could use Paste(Ctrl+V) or Paste special...
@Rotate -I have this in my mind but I don't verify if it could be applied to ALL kinds of items (especially for walls).
Maybe another tool something like Distribute angle ?????

Re: Multiple paste & Distribute elevation plug-in

New version 2.0 and also on Source Forge
-change interface
-add a curve method
-add elevation and rotation in both method

The operations remain the same:
1. Select->Copy->Deselect
2. Menu->Edit->Paste Special...
.....and than You are on own risk!

I don't try to write an user manual while nobody read it.
RECOMMENDATION: exercise on a new file until You handle how it work.
Few hints:

The second image have the input used for ellipse


You can use undo for delete one-by-one latest objects.
