Wall Dormer Help

Recommended Posts

Hello:wall dormer.docx

I am attempting to draw a wall dormer.  Essentially, a dormer that rests on the exterior wall with the rooflines of the dormer that extend down to the eaves of the main roof below.  I cannot find an example of how to do this.

Please see attached screenshot.

Suggestions???

Thanks,

Jim

There are many ways, manual and automatic and combination.
This example is an Auto Floating Dormer, I just placed it right at the wall, then broke the main roof in two places in front of the dormer and pulled back the overhang.
Limitation on this is you can't pull back flush with the sides of the dormer or it will break.  However you can explode the dormer and then modify the main roof without affecting the dormer... just make sure the dormer is how you want it before exploding it.

Please post images directly -- no need to encapsulate an image in another file. This makes it easier for others as an image shows in the forum.
