    Well, have spent the last hour going around in circles trying to find Ruby scripts on the WEB. Your links to zoom_selection and Purgeall go to a site: ruby library depot. Searching on this site takes me to a link that takes me back to the ruby library depot site……

    How/where/when can I download these scripts?

    Click on the Ruby Library Depot link above or go to Under Menu choose either Imperial or Metric Plugins. Next to the flashing lights choose and area of interest. for zoom_selection I would choose Selection-Layers. Probably the same for purgeall. This site has been extremely slow over the last few days. I don’t know why. If you still can’t find them write me at and I will email them to you.

    I was wondering if there was a description available for what functionality is provided by the layers plugin.

    Hi Glenn,

    Yes, go to and you will find a description. Also, in general, Ruby scripts that are not scrambled are simple text files and can be opened with a text editor such as Microsoft’s Notepad. At the beginning there is a commented are that usually has a description of the tools/commands and their functionality; as does this layers.rb script. In Part 6 of my Beginner’s SketchUp Tutorial, The Video Version, which can be found on you will see the script in action. Hope this helps.

    The Ruby Library Depot seems to have been restructured — the link given in Response #2 is broken, for example. I’ve tried searching RLD for this and other scripts by the names given in your site, but it looks like they’ve either gone or been renamed?

    (I’m a newcomer to SU and delighted to have found your website. What a great resource — thank you!)

    Hi Anton,

    That is why I eliminated any links on this page. I couldn’t keep up with the changes on RLD. Glad you joined us here though.
