FlexSlat consists of the following components:

  1. frame profiles
  2. frame corners
  3. slats (2 separate instances for optimized usage – see ‘economode’ below)
  • Sketchup 2015 and up


  • scale or type in measurements
  • specify dimensions – frame and slats
  • specify spacing and rotation in X,Y,Z +- random positioning and rotation
  • set frame to 0 – frame hidden.
  • inset guide – specify distance for easy placement
  • frame guide – toggle guide visibility for when frame = 0.
  • offsets – to improve positioning
  • slat – length extension – extend slat edges until flush with frame.
  • slat – reduction – reduce amount of slats from top and bottom.

Interact tool:

  • on slat – redraw slat position/rotation
  • on frame – redraw all


Y/Z rotations:

  • OFF – (‘economode’) – Y/Z rotations disabled.  Component file size is kept to a minimum of 10 component instances no matter how many slats are generated.
  • ON – Y/Z rotations enabled.  Each new slat generated adds an additional component instance to the model.  Highly Recommended to ‘purge unused’ when done generating.

Also Included:

  • “drag-n-drop” version included – drag from folder or components library directly into model with no need to explode.
  • “no-dims” version included – for multiple component edits while maintaining original dimensions.
  • English, French, Spanish & Traditional Chinese versions – all available upon purchase
