How Is The Best Way to Create This Roof System?

Recommended Posts

A house I did a while back has come back to have an angled garage and I'm not sure how to create the roof system. I have already created a gable roof over the straight section of the garage but how to infill to the wall of the house (its roof is higher) has me stumped.

Any help would be appreciated.  

Thanks

Alan

Turn on auto build roofs. The program will build this correctly.

The key is having your "Default Settings - Floor - Ceiling Heights" set correctly and then Wall Dialog box-Roof Tab settings to  guide the roof generator to the roof system you want.

Okay let me try the auto roof option.  I created all the other roof planes manually.

If the model is not set up to auto build correctly, try this.

 

Auto build the roof after setting pitch and overhangs properly.

 

Copy the roof planes over the garage and connector space.

 

Control Z to undo the auto build roof.

 

Paste Hold Position to put the auto generated roof planes back over the garage.
