a basic Mansard can be done with just a few settings for the auto-roof gen

 

see the "styles" tab on the roofs dbx or the roof vidoes or help articles

 

there are over 24 different roof styles and/or complex roofs that can be done with the auto roof gen

 

CA recommends to start with auto then go manual if/as needed

so what is different ???

 

Jim's solution looks like the OP's request to me ???

 

If not, I'm sure it could be tweaked manually

 

just don't see a need to start manual and ignore the auto-gen

 

have you tried the Mansard auto-gen settings ???

Hmmm -- After all walls are drawn - Select all walls and open DBX -- Set Lower pitch as required (>12), upper pitch at 1/4" & setback from baseline.

 

Build Roof -- Time less than a minute. Always start with the Auto.
