Greetings
Thanks for the great tools! I would like to see a ruby that would help make a standing seam roof. Would that be possible

Thanks again for all the effort

standing seam roof created using horizontal groove tool

i created this using the horizontal groove tool, with a bit of trick

1) rotate the roof face to stand vertical, i.e. rotate it 90 degrees along y axis.
2) select the faces and run the horizontal grooves tool
3) for extrusion, use negative value for the depth

and you get this with a single click! 8-)

No doubt that it is a good start for making a standing seam roof. My dad examined your work and he said that the first one is more effective. It could be a good way to prevent water from stocking.
