Skatter 2 and Laubwerk.

**SketchUp version :2.01
Skatter version (Skatter dialog > Options > About) :
**OS :Widows 10
Description of the issue : Using Laubwerk models in a Skatter composition with render-only turned on using VRay 5 - the Skattered components are not rendering.
Are you able to reproduce the issue every time? (If yes, how?) : see screen capture attached

Error in Ruby Console? (Window > Ruby Console) :

If I untick Render-Only it will render as expected.

This is weird, it works on my machine.

Did you restart the render, after generating?
Does it happen with a single tree?

What version of the Laubwerk extension are you using?

Seems to be working fine now. It was a brand new machine with newly installed everything. Maybe just a hiccup?

Any reason why we are using obj/in2 and not obj/square foot for the density setting? I know that us Imperial units people, especially architects work in square foot quite a bit.

For density, SketchUp “Area” unit is used.

When I set SketchUp to use Feet2 for Area it still shows up as obj/in2

Ah… never mind, I see that the setting needs to be set to Decimal.

I checked and indeed there seems to be a bug in the SketchUp Ruby API.
When the format is not Decimal, the API always returns inches.

I’ll report this to Trimble.
