Dormer on a curved wall

Recommended Posts

Reviewing the CA videos I see that all the dormers are created on a single roof plane.  I'm interested in creating a dormer on a second story where the roof has many planes because it is created off a slightly curved wall.  It appears that placing a dormer or auto dormer won't work because CA seems to not like creating a hole across two or more roof planes.  To accomplish this, I'm wondering if one would have to create this dormer manually, and if so, create openings in each roof plane to make it work?

 

Has anyone come across a situation like this?  And is this the only way to accomplish this across a multi-plane roof?

Stephen, I would just edit all of the roof plane edges where the "dormer opening" would be by inserting break points in the edges and pull them back to whatever dormer wall configuration you want. I would build the dormer manually from there.
