Roof Dormers

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I'm working on the below project and I'm having some trouble trying to put in some dormers. I've included the model and some pictures of some old prints that I'm attempting to replicate. I've tried using the automatic dormer tool in chief with no success. Any ideas as to how I could create the three dormers on the front and the shed roof on the rear?

 

Thanks!

A dormer hole (hole in a roof plane) must be fully contained in a single roof plane, so auto dormers are not going to work.

 

The 3 across the front will need to be done manually.

 

I'd build the one on the back manually too.

 

New users frequently have trouble with dormers, but just think about what needs to be done to create one and the process should become clear.
