Roof tool to include Curves



We are a small architecture firm - We are trying to start our projects with constructing the 3d model... One of the houses has a couple of barrel roofs. It was laborious to get the model to work. We constructed a concave arc shape with the polyline tool - extruded it to the length of the rooms it needs to cover. Nudged so it sat on the walls right and then used the '3d reshape' tool to make the 2 end walls fit under the barrel. It would have been nice to be able to use the 'fit wall to roof' tool!

i cover this exact roof type in my VectorWorks Architect tutorial, so if you want a longer explanation you should look at my web site :


but a couple of suggestions:

1. In elavation draw lines to represent the roof slope.

2. Don?t nudge the roof, move it accurately.

3. From the Menu Bar use AEC > Fit Walls to Roof to get the walls to meet the barrel. This command works with all 3D geometry, not just roofs...
