Roof Design

Recommended Posts

I am recreating our existing house plan.  How do I override the roof lines automatically laid out by HD with the actual roof lines in my home?

you need to learn how the Wall Roof Directives Tab controls the Roofs built , a good place to start is the Reference Manual and there is a KB Articles on the Basic Roofs , since you have Suite you will need to be very conversant with this procedure as Suite only has Auto Roofs, you can't draw anything manually.

 

 

this is probably a good starting point

There is also a Roof Tutorial in the UserGuide            (link on the help menu)
