[Plugin] Roof.rb v1

[Plugin] Roof.rb v1

Postby TIG » Tue Nov 20, 2007 3:26 am

This is v1 of Roof.rb. It's new script I have created to make several types of roof from a selected face or face+edge.

In the zip file there are two files Roof.rb and RoofHelp.mht, put both of these into your SketchUp Plugins folder.

Read the help file for an overview...

Please try and feedback...

Some problems reported with the Help combined image and text file (mht) so here's a pdf if it, that you can open manually till I get a better handle on the problem...

Here's v1.1, it's adjusted to resolve ratio (A:B) issues if a certain other script was not loaded (RickW's array_to.rb) - now the required array method is built into Roof.rb too...

Please replace the current version with this one.

At least that error report is fixed. Now for some other errors...

Edit: For new users: get the zip file - it also contains the help file that goes in the folder with the script. However, the help file in v1.1 is the same as v1.0 so you only need to get Roof.rb if you've downloaded it before...

Location: UK Here's v1.2. There's now a slight tolerance in checking if the face to make a gable or pyramid roof is rectangular. If the sides are out by less than ~0.2mm in 1000mm it'll still work. However, in that case you might get gables not lining perfectly with the block below.

The Roof.rb script attached is v1.2, The .zip file contains both this version of the script and the .mht help file that goes into the Plugins folder with it. You only need the help file reloading if you haven't had an earlier version of the script, since the help file is the same as in v1.0 and v1.1...

I hope this now addresses a few problems. Keep the feedback coming...

I have only just downloaded this script and given it a quick test. It is a perfect addition to sketchup. :D

Thank you for your time, effort and generosity in making this roof script available.

Hello TIG,

This new script runs very well, congratulations. In my PC didn't run the older one.

Here's v1.3. It fixes some more problems: gable material glitches, spurious non-rectangular face error messages and second-gable overhang weirdness.

The Roof.rb script attached is v1.3, The .zip file contains both this version of the script and the .mht help file that goes into the Plugins folder with it. You only need the help file reloading if you haven't had an earlier version of the script, since the help file is the same as in v1.0 to v1.2...

I hope this now addresses many of your problems. But keep the feedback coming...
