It is very challenging to code ruby plugin for sketchup. In this regard, Wingnang Fan has developed a useful plugin alias Random Building Generator. Watch the following demo video of the plugin.
This sketchup extension will allow the users to produce a group of boxes having arbitrary sizes which seem to be a group of building blocks. The users will be able to memorize their input values which will be assigned to the building group and saved with sketchup file. In future, if the user prefers to close and open file, the input value will exist there.
The values can be recovered for producing another. As a final point, the settings can be exported to a csv file.
