How can I do this roofline quickly?

Recommended Posts

Is there a quick way to do this roofline? I tried putting another level above but its not working. I've done this years ago but can't get it now

In the 2 end walls dbx, go to the Roof panel and use the Dutch Gable Wall option.

Auto build roofs.

Or..it looks like there may be a double pitch.

In which case, in addition to the above, open the walls dbx for the 2 long walls and enter the Upper Pitch options.

Auto build roofs.

 

Here is a very quick one:

Steve,

Great video as usual, but probably MUCH easier to do a simple roof like that using the auto roof tool.

Build a zero height second floor and control the dormer with a room on the second floor.

The big advantage of doing auto is that the model is very easy to change if you want to see how variations will look - or, if in a very unusual circumstance, the client changes their mind and wants some changes!  ;)

I realise that it was an older video not necessarily made for this particular situation.

      Hey All,
      Please help me to create roof over a floor without walls but with only beam/pillars. I want it to be open terrace but covered from above.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I have a soffit that just wants to be angled. I auto created the roofs and this happened. So I deleted that part and made my own - same thing. So I mirrored the rear roof at 45 into place - same thing. I have included the plan - anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?
