Click on any “bounding edge” in Sketchup to add a glue tab!

What is a “bounding edge”? It’s the edge of a face that does not touch any other faces. In Sketchup, “bounding edges” are the edges that are displayed in a bold stroke.

It sounds complicated, but it’s really quite simple: A bounding edge is the only place where it makes sense to put a glue tab on an unfolded papercraft model.

Use this script in conjunction with the Unfold Tool and you’ve got yourself the ghetto manual version of Waybe, completely for free!!


  • Select the Glue Tab tool from the Plugins menu
  • Start clicking on boundary edges to make glue tabs.
  • You can adjust the tab width in the status bar (Thanks to Jim Foltz for this!)
