Instant Roof, is a truly great Google SketchUp Ruby script. Its purpose is simple -- you use Instant Roof to quickly create gables, hips, sheds and trellises anywhere you need them.
This script has everything going for it:
- Easy to install. Pop one file into your plugins folder and you're done.
- Easy to learn. Chuck Vali has put together a huge pile of fantastic instructional PDFs and videos on his website. The in-product help is also comprehensive and well-placed.
- Easy to use. Everything's right there in the Plugins menu, so you don't have to memorize and keep track of a bunch of little tool icons. The input method for telling the script where to put gables and sheds couldn't be simpler.
To use Instant Roof, you select a face and choose Plugins > Instant Roof > Make Roof.
