Dormers in Roofs

Recommended Posts

You can't insert a dormer in a roof face object, only a roof object.

The way around this is to cut a hole out of the roof face where the walls/window would go. Then construct the walls and place the window in the newly created walls.

You can then create a dormer roof by drawing a polygon and using "create roof" or the roof face command if the roof is a simple shed roof.

I like to use walls and another (set of) roof face(s). Seems to give me more control. You can use the "fit walls to roof" command to trim the bottom of your walls to the roof below if you need. But be sure that the walls to be fit are on a different layer from the geometry to which they will be fit.
