I have 8 pro and the plugin works perfectly. There must be something else...
Your 'error report' is pretty useless
I what way 'can't you use it' ?
Do you have the latest version [v3.5] ?
Are there menu items that don't work?
Do they appear to work but fails?
Is the result not what was expected?
Have Window > Ruby Console open and post any errors that appear there...
It works fine on all platforms and recent versions of Sketchup...
There are no known clashes with other scripts after recent version changes [and a most unusual 'clash' between the new tool 'Artisan' and the older roof 'Roof' was quickly noticed - caused by them both being 'packed' - recent versions of Roof are not 'packed' to avoid this... as if one loaded the other didn't!]
Here's v3.6 viewtopic.php?p=17156#p17156
Errors minimized. Speed greatly improved. Roof-Slope reported in Angle, 1:B and A:12.
Here's v3.7 viewtopic.php?p=17156#p17156
A longstanding error/glitch with the 'Gable by Width' option has been fixed [thanks to Mariocha's report by PM!]
Probably not a bug since it works for others.
What was the error message?
Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.
What error ?
I'm not psychic...
There is a known limitation, it's explained in the Usage Guide and several error messages.
It's possible to devise a shape - 'crooked star' etc - than can never have a hipped roof of equal pitches - it's a physical impossibility!
Also sometimes the edges of a face get messed up in their order when returned as a 'face loop' [especially after lots of editing] - then it can fail to make a roof that would otherwise have worked - again there are tips on fixing this - e.g. by re-creating the face, or copying it off as a group, exploding it etc, so Sketchup reorders the edges properly and moving it back into place...
Your selected face is at z=0... AND it's facing downwards [top face is looking down] !
It's a limitation that a lone face at z=0 will fail...
So try moving it up from z=0 [even 1mm will do!] ... [AND you can also try Reversing it using the context-menu].
It should then work OK...
WOW this works for me thanks a lot
Great plugin. Im lifting up planty of houses from sitemap and drawing roofs on the top. There are many roofs with same angels and gabels. Often foundation is same height from ground and floors heights are equal. So I thought If you could add some parameters for those. Then when user have set default values. He can just pick countinues how meny house rectangles he want from sitemap and results are houses with roofs. I hope you understand what I mean. It is little bit faster to work this way. But of curse this is great plugin already. Great job. Thank you. D

Shelton - please complete your User Profile, so we know about your OS etc...
Installing this tool is much easier than most...
The .rb file goes into the Plugins folder.
The 'help' files need to be installed separately - they need to be extracted from the ZIP and these too go into the Plugins folder.
After a restart the 'Roof' toolset should appear in the Plugins menu under a submenu called 'Roof...' containing various roof tools, the Help files will not open if you have not installed the 'help' files.
The 'Help' contains detailed explanations of how to use each of the tools...
These can also be opened independently outside Sketchup...
If you are having problems with installing tools then why not get thomthom's 'Simple-Plugins-Installer' - it's available to download from the SCF 'Plugins Index' [via the Resources menu item above].
His tool comes as a RBZ archive and is installed using the v8 Preferences > Extensions > Install... button. Thereafter it appears in the Plugins menu and can be used to auto-install tools or toolset in RB/RBS/ZIP and RBZ formats... So for example with the Roof tool you get the RB and install that, then the ZIP of help files and install that... Thereafter the Roof tools should appear under the Plugins menu submenu list...
