New User Wandering in the Woods in Architecture Posted February 26 3 hours ago, line-weight said: I'd be quite impressed with any application that could draw roof tiles fully correctly. It would have to know how to set them out across the roof slope, keeping within max/min cover dimensions, and it would have to know about details at ridge and eaves which might involve special-size tiles. And ideally it would draw battens and know about tilting fillets and all this kind of thing. For vertical walls it would have to know how to draw the details around window openings, etc. All great points made in recent posts above. I am always on the lookout for automation of 3d detailing. The best I have seen so far for this specific thing is Plusspec, a Sketchup plugin that has real materials (even labelled insulation batts!) and intelligent lintels over windows that change profile with span and timber trusses and rafters/hips that are generated as part of a roof component. Mostly tailored for Australian single storey buildings and material suppliers at the moment however. I am in UK.
