LSS Arch 1.6

New version of LSS Arch extension for SketchUp went live on Extension Warehouse:

The above video makes clear why it is safely possible to claim, that LSS Arch became awesome on multiple levels after this particular update. Continue reading to learn more about features introduced in this update.

LSS Arch Lite

Simplified version of LSS Arch extension for SketchUp went live on Extension Warehouse This version may become a perfect solution for those users who are going to use extension only for architectural modeling so no extra functions like labeling or reporting are needed. All tools for basic building's elements modeling are included in lite version.
Lite version doesn't have tools for advanced modeling like mesh tool, grid and contour tools and lacks service utilities, which are present in full version. But SketchUp power user can combine other existing extensions (including free ones), which provide tools for advanced geometry modeling with LSS Arch Lite in order to achieve the maximum effect.

Blob Body Type

As you may already know new mesh body type was introduced in a new version of LSS Arch extension for SketchUp. It is possible to think of blob body type as of conventional mesh but in spherical coordinate system.

As is evident from the presentation above adaptation of mesh logic from Cartesian  to spherical coordinate system was more or less obvious for three of algorithms implemented earlier ("IDW", "average", "minimize").
Adaptation of the rest two algorithms was a bit more tricky for the following reason. Both "trend" and "predict" algorithms use fit_plane_to_points method provided by SketchUp API. This method allows to estimate a trend plane from a given set of scattered points. The point is that trend plane does not make sense for spherical data set.
