Porch roof build with curved outside wall

Recommended Posts

I want to build a roof over a porch with a curved outer wall. I have tried a few things but have not got anything to work.

I am thinking it needs to be 6 on 12 shed style that wraps around the curved section of the outer wall. I have attached

a screen shot of the plan.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried manually and to let it auto build. I assume that to auto build you would set it up as a shed roof but the curved area is not something I have done before.

Take a look at this X8 YouTube video I made for you: https://youtu.be/zGfMkpbQP2E

 

Make sure that the deck room (if that is what you named the space) on its "Structure Tab" is manually checked "Roof and Ceiling over this room" otherwise you, no matter what you do will get no auto-generated roof.

David,

 

In your video you say that you are shift selecting the walls and it looks like you pull a line past the curved wall. I am not sure

how or why you are doing this? Can you explain?
