SketchUp Architectural Plugin Tools

… achieve MORE while doing LESS … 1001bit Tools Pro v2 is a collection of plugins (Ruby scripts) for SketchUp. Each tool is specifically designed to performing architectural tasks with the minimum of effort for your 3D SketchUp concepts and construction modelling. Create 3d models of staircases,spiral staircases,escalators,walls,doors and windows, and even self-generated roof rafters, by simply keying in the parameters and dimensions into custom designed dialogues which offer varied dimensional flexibility for your project models. There is even a simple but powerful .txt database resource at standby for calling up proprietary and standard model profiles and dimension settings to help you model faster. Compatible with SketchUp 2017.

    1001bit Tools Pro adds the following 40 additional commands to SketchUp:

    Information between 2 points-This tool provides various information between 2 chosen points in 3D space.
      Point on face – setting out reference point-Places a construction point on a selected face by defining horizontal and vertical distances. It is intended to be used for creating setting out reference points, particularly on faces that is not vertical or horizontal.
      Center point of arc and circles-This tool places a construction point at the center of an arc or a circle through picking 3 points along the arc of circle.
    Divide – divide selected edge with different setting out options-The divide tool creates a series of construction points along the selected edge. There are different setting out options to place the construction points.
      Align selected entities-This tool allows for aligning any group or component instance by defining 3 basepoints and 3 target points. This is particularly useful for accurate placement of elements on non flat planes, for example placing a car on a slope, or placing a hatch opening onto a sloping roof surface.
    Set current layer-This tool sets the layer of the selected entity as current layer. An input box is displayed. If the user enter a new layer name, the new layer is created (if not exist) and set as current layer.
      Set layer of selected entities-This tool sets the layer of the selected entities (including grouped entities) to a single layer.This is particularly useful when different elements inside a group has been created on different layers. This tool can reorganize the layer of entities inside a group into a common layer.
      Perpendicular line-This tool draws an edge perpendicular to another edge, or a face.
      Face on plane defined by 3 points-This tool draws a face on a plane defined by 3 points. This is useful in tracing a profile projected to a target plane, or creating a face by tracing along minor non-coplanar points.
      Best fit face-This tool creates a face from a series of non-coplanar points. This is useful when patching up models with minor non-coplanar points.
      Extrude along path-This tool is similar to Sketchup’s follow me tool, except there is no need to place the profile anywhere near or along the direction of the path.
      Extrude along sloping curved pathThis tool is specially meant for extruding a profile along a sloping curved path; for example,car park ramp, railing of spiral staircase, etc. The tool will maintain vertical profile along the slope.
      Extrude maintaining taper-This tool extrudes a selected face while maintaining any tapering tendency that is associated with the face.
      Extrude to target planeThis tool extrudes a selected to a target plane.
    Revolved surface-This tool creates surface by revolving along a selected profile along a defined axis. It has an added feature to scale profile as it’s being revolved. The scale factor refers to the ratio of the final distance of a point to the axis over its original distance.
      Move vertex-This tool allows for flexible editing of individual vertex of a model.
    Fillet-This tool creates a radius fillet between 2 edges.
      Chamfer-This tool is similar to fillet tool except it creates chamfered corners.
      Extend-This tool extends an edge to a face or another edge.
      Offset-This tool offsets an edge at a distance from the edge.
      Horizontal slice selected face-This tool slices faces connected to the selected face /faces at a horizontal level.
      Slope selected edges-This tool allows the user to change the selected edges into one with continuous slope. It comes with a slope calculator that allows for calculation of gradients between degrees and ratio as well as actual height in relation to the length of the edges.
      Scale tool-This tool provides different scaling functions
      Linear array-This tool creates an array of group/component instance along a straight line.
      Rectangular array-This tool creates 2 dimensional rectangular array of group and component instances.
      Polar array-This tool creates array of group/component instance rotated around a center axis.
      Path array-This tool creates array of group/component instance along a path (a series of connected edges). The groups/component instances are rotated to follow the direction of the path.
    Vertical Walls-1001bit Pro version come with multiple choices for types of walls…
    • There is an option to custom define the sectional profile from a face.
    • Cavity Wall tool creates vertical cavity walls. The tool will maintain verticality of walls even if it is along a sloping path, and will automatically sort out the profiles necessary when running along a slope.
    • Partition wall with studs tool creates vertical partition walls with vertical studs. The tool will maintain verticality of walls even if it is along a sloping path, and will automatically sort out the profiles necessary when running along a slope.

    Opening on wall-This tool creates openings on walls (whether grouped or not). There’s   also an option to create custom shaped openings defined by a face.     

    Horizontal grooves-This tool creates horizontal recessed groove lines or  protruded lines (use –ive value for depth) on selected faces.    

    Columns-1001bit Pro version come with multiple choices for types of columns.  


    •       Rectangular
    •      Circular and Ellipse
    •      Rectangular column with capital
    •      Tuscan Column
    •      Circular Tuscan column

    Foundations-1001bit Pro version come with multiple choices for types of foundations.

    • standard pad footing
    • strip footing

    Note: different types of strip footings can be created by simply modifying the parameters.  

    Edges to 3D profiles-This tool converts selected edges to 3 dimensional profiles. There are multiple selections of profiles to select from. User can also define custom profiles for extrusion. 

    Staircases-1001bit Pro version come with multiple choices for 12 types of staircases. 

    Escalator-This tool automatically creates standard escalators. The dimensions of standard components are fixed to commonly available escalators. 

     Window Frame-This tool is used to create window frame and window panels.

    Door Frame-The create door frame tool works similarly to the window frame tool. The only difference is the frame is built without at bottom frame.Please refer window frame tool for procedures.

    Preset window and door frames-This tool generates different combinations of windows and door frames.The tool can be used to either generate and cut the wall, insert the frame simultaneously or just generating the frame without cutting a wall.

    Divided Panels-The tool divides the selected face into different framed panels. The procedure is similar to that of window frame and door frame.The options on the frame profiles are similar.

    Perforated Screen-This tool creates perforated screens. Thickness, angle, opening dimensions can be freely defined. There is also an option to use custom defined profile as shape of openings.

    Louvres-This tool creates louvers from selected face. There are multiple types of louver profiles to choose from. There is also an option of using user defined profile to create louvers.              

    propl_lProfiles On Plane-The tool converts edges on to profiled sections.

    There are multiple options of profile to choose from.


    Joists-Create joists tool automatically creates joists, rafters, battens, etc on selected  face. There are multiple type of profiles as well as multiple options in ways to layout the joists.

    Roof Rafters, Battens/Purlins-This tool automatically creates roof rafters, purlins/battens, fascia board from selected faces.There a multiple choices of rafters and battens to choose from. 

    Hip Roof-This tool automatically solves hip roof geometry from face of any shape.


    Metal Deck-This tool converts a face into metal decks with different profiles.


    Cut and Fill Site-This tool is meant for placing a flat plane on a contoured site. The tool will automatically cut and fill areas and the angle of the ‘retaining walls’ can be defined.


    Site Boundary-This tool traces the boundary of a face onto a contour.  


    Trace Contour Lines-This tool traces contour lines at fixed vertical distance intervals. (note: it applies to all objects in active model)
