Curved Baseline of Roof?

Recommended Posts

I have made a few attempts and have so far been unsuccessful. I have also not found any other useful answers in the forums on this. I have only found how to curve the roof plane.

 

I would like to know how to go about creating a roof with a curved baseline. I have attached a reference photo of what I am attempting to draw. It is the curved section of roof just below the level 2 porch railing. This is the first time I have run into a curved roof and turret. Very uncommon where I live.

 

Thanks!

No such thing as a curved baseline.  Just as if you are going to build that with wood there are multiple segments to the roof plane and baseline.  Did you find the chief video on round roofs ?

Thanks, let me search for it and see if I can find it.

If the minimum segment angle is not quite fine enough for you there is a method of using polyline subtraction on the edge of the roof planes to decrease the number of segments for the fascia if you are trying to simulate a steamed fascia board.

Turn on auto roofs on and let Chief figure out the geometry and fine tune if it's not right.
