Is it possible to make it so the V groove can be horizontal instead of vertical?

Obviously it's been quite a while since this comment but I've published a remix that does this.

Thank you for doing the remix.

Great idea making a parametric design.

Would it be possible to add extra V groves in horizontal plane as well as vertical. For my current project I need 2 horizontal groves.
Sometimes different jobs need different groves... Multiple vertical groves would be useful for other jobs.
Also would it be possible to remove the end brackets? My vice is 155mm and I print in ABS. Getting these to print that long without warping would be a challenge. Without the ends I could fit a small soft-jaw in a big vice...

I have made some with freecad but a more parametric scad file would be very useful!

This is great, thank you for sharing! If I may offer a couple of suggested additions:

  1. It would be helpful to adjust "face thickness" separately from "top/side thickness";
  2. Allow adjustment for location of V-slot;
  3. Add option for round/disc magnets instead of just square.

Thanks for your suggestions! I have included the option to create both square and circular magnet inserts. I have also added the ability to change the position of the v-groove.
