Custom Horizontal Grooves (or Metal Deck)

Postby SurfingAlien » Tue Jun 19, 2012 10:45 pm

Hi!

I'm building a (regular slated) roof that will be seen in partial foreground so I'd like to give its faces a slight horizontal groove.
I need each face to remain a single, multiface, element.

any idea if this is possible in an easy/quick way?

thank you in advance,
Alessandro

hi,
The simplest way is to draw a 'custom profile', and then use the 'rafter and joists tool' to spread it across the selected surface.
