Roof lines on multiple levels


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  I've started working with HD Suite 2019 for a house remodel/addition project.  I'm currently trying to get a solid "as-built" model detailed out before working on attaching an addition to it.  So far I have found this software to be amazing, but I'm struggling a bit with a roof.  I've attached a .zip file with my house model so far, as well as a picture of the house I'm working on.  The original house is a two-story reverse-gable roof, and sometime later the little slant roof to the right in the picture was added on as an addition.  I was able to get the slant roof in the model, but I did have to make two interior walls roof walls.  I can't get the 2nd story to build the reverse-gable.  I've broken the walls where needed and specified which ones are full gable walls, with the others as hip walls.  Any advice?  Also, looking forward to the addition, I'll definitely want to be able to draft several different roof line ideas to visualize each one.

I see you said Suite, but ...


Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

I guess I had it correct all along!  I'm thinking that I wasn't looking at the correct 3D rendering/view.  I'm calling the reverse-gable the roof setup on the 2nd floor, with the L-shaped roof with two separate ridge lines.  Thanks for the quick reply.  I'll attempt to exhaust all self-help options next time prior to posting in the forum.


Thanks again!
