Help with curved roof over entry

Recommended Posts

Hey all-

 

I read through some posts on this and watched the videos but I still haven't found a step by step process that helps me with manual roof lines with a curved roof. They show how to do it with an auto roof but that would delete all my manual work. I'm stuck and all I want is to curve the 1 roof plane above the entry on the front of the house to match the photo example. I'm so close but I'm just not doing something right. doah!

 

Thank you in advance!

Watched it. Does not answer the question I have. My roof has a 12/12 pitch for the first 3/4 of the roof plane and then curves out where the brekenridge plan has the entire roof plane arched. Not the same but thank you for the suggestion.

The procedure is spelled out very clearly in the Reference Manual beginning on page 511. It's actually very easy. Be aware, however, that boxed eaves with curved roofs can yield poor results.

Perfect!

 

Thank you very much.... Got it fixed.

 

And you were right, it was a simple process. One that I have not done before but this has been sooo helpful.

 

Again, thank you-
