Elements

This object allows to easily create horizontal/vertical sunshades with arbitrary slant by graphically specifying start and end point. You can also use the plugin to create wall claddings, weatherboards, group of beams for roofs or slabs, wood pavings, sunshade coverings and any other use you can imagine with repetitive extruded elements.
