Latest demo version not working on Sketchup 2016


Hi, I’m using demo version on Sketchup 2016, but I don’t even see the red dots that shows the scattering of the object.
Nothing shows up when I click the host and the object. The Ruby Console says ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments when i click (re)Generate button.

I use Sketchup 2016, V-ray for renderer and latest Skatter demo.

Attaching screenshot of Ruby console below.

Thank you

Hi Thomas

Thank you for developing Skatter! I just need some advice with regard to a potential bug problem. I’m not sure if I’m facing the same issue with maukdesign. I’m using intel Mac Pro, OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite, Sketchup 2016, demo Skatter version I downloaded a couple of days ago. (12 days remaining in my trial)

What I did:

Launched Skatter window, under Distribution I changed the default 0.001 items/unit to 1, clicked on host button at the top, selected a surface group in Sketchup, and Sketchup hangs. Perpetual rainbow wheel. I saw this post, downloaded another copy of the Skatter demo from your link above, re-installed Skatter, and the same issue came up. A screenshot is attached with this post.

I’m not sure whether my issue differs from the one maukdesign faced before, or whether it’s an issue with the way I re-installed your latest demo. Any help would be great!

Thank you very much.
Best regards


What are your model’s units? I guess millimeters?
If so, 1 object per mm² is a LOT of objects to compute, that’s why your computer hangs. Try leaving the default value then increase gradually.
You probably don’t want one tree every millimeter.


Oh yes! It’s in millimeters, that’s right! Thank you for the tip. I was just blindly following the video tutorial. I’ll continue to try the features and feedback on issues, if any. Thanks for your help!
