Finally SketchyPhysics3 works fine on Mac & SU2014 so I have tried to make some tests with it. Searching information about use of the plugin I found this topic in--> SketchUcation
All instructions are valid for Thea but change in the point 9:
a) Menu > File → Save Scene (KerkyThea) to Menu > File → Save (Thea) when Thea asks for Scene format press NO
b) Menu > File > Run Script (KerkyThea) to Menu > File > Open (Thea)
You need to have installed these components in your computer:
SketchyPhysics3 Plugin -->Download Plugin
SU2KT plugin and KerkyThea application --> Download Plugin and Application

This is very limited solution, because it won't export any Thea settings and will use just default materials.

I like SketchyPhysics myself, so we should see support for this plugin directly in Thea for SketchUp soon.

Great news as I want to play with it but see no point until it's supported.

Is there a way to use the newer MSPhysics (http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtop ... 23&t=56852) together with Thea (it has a su2kt export like SP3 too)?

I've found one nice example video from Tomasz, so it seems to be possible and the question is how to use it...

I'd imagine its the same as Sketchy to KT, sorry like I said it refuses to work on my machine and bucket loads of errors (not that I've really tried lol) and I'm quite happy with Sketchy, as long as I keep the colliding geometry simple it never crashes, you can attach the high poly stuff to it and set it none colliding
