Help with changing individual roof pitches

Recommended Posts

The roof pitches of my house differ from the first to the second floor. The pitch on the upper roof section is much steeper than the sections on the first floor (front and back of house). When I generate a roof, all sections have the same pitch. How do I adjust individual roof section pitches??post-567-0-11186300-1395255555_thumb.jpg

For auto built roofs, you set the roof pitch in the Roof panel of the wall's dbx that the roof is built off.

The best way to build any roof is by doing the roofs manually, it gives you a lot of control.

I believe you can control individual roof planes by clicking on the wall below the roof plan you want edited, then click on the "roof" tab and then type in your desired pitch in the "pitch options" area... Hopefully that makes sense...

After typing this I now see the GlennW said basically the same thing. Ugh! Why don't I just try reading the whole post before adding my two cents?

After many attempts, I managed to  change the roof pitches as needed. The trick seemed to be, make sure ALL walls sections that are under that roof section have the pitch changes made. As usual, thanks to all for your great input.  :)  :)
