joining roof faces

Recommended Posts

Draw two (overlapping) roof faces and select them. Choose the "Clip Surface" command. The foremost roof plane will clip the rearmost, just as if they were polys. Most path-based objects (objects drawn based on a closed shape) will operate this way in 12.5.1

I do not get the same result. The foremost roof plane keeps its geometry unchanged and merely acts as an outline to cut through the rearmost in top plan resulting in two separate roof planes one of which has a square hole in it with the 2nd one passing through said hole.

Same for me too. Are we missing something Robert?

Using Add Surface and Clip Surface you can change the shape of any Roof Face quickly and easily. It will not give you the correct geometry however - you still have to work this out yourself.

This is the crux of LarryAZ's wish for the ability to join two Roof Faces together - to have a capability like wall joining where dragging a cursor line from one Roof Face to another Roof Face would result in the Roof Faces extending to their geometric intersection point.

Archicad 6 had this capability some 7 years ago.
