Fit walls to curved roof

Recommended Posts


I have a curved roof that I created from intersecting two solids.

When I try to "fit walls to roof" the result is not very good, it's all twisted. It works so so.

Another approach was creating instersected solids between the walls and the (already) intersected roof.

The only problem is that I "lost" my walls, they became intersected solids instead of walls. Should I then create "fake" 2d walls?

Are there other better aproaches?

Sometimes the "fit walls to roof" simply won't work with curved roofs.

But then sometimes it does, (on the same roof in the same model) why is that?

Thank you!

Be sure you have your walls and roof on separate design layers. . .but set to the same scale. Also, make certain you have the design layers' Z-height set properly. Typically the roof's Z-height would be equivalent to the top-of-wall height.

I generally create the 2D section of a curved roof and then extrude it while in Front (or one of the sides, as appropriate) View. I would then go to my walls layer, select the effected walls and invoke the "Fit. . ." command.

Good luck,
