skylights: can I actually cut them thru?

Recommended Posts

I think in that project, I just cut holes in the roof by editing the roof object(s) and then made some skylights from extrudes/solid subtraction/additions, etc. and placed them on the roof...

The roof will not allow itself to be extracted. Maybe I'll just make one out of a tilted wall. wish there were skylights in the package. :)

Please add a signature that describes your system and VW version.

You may have to Ungroup your roof, so it becomes several Roof Faces. Then you can clip a hole in any one of them for your skylight - double click on the roof face, draw a rectangle where you want to cut the hole, select it and the roof face, click Clip Surface, delete the rectangle and click Done.

David, et. al., it is now possible to CLIP or ADD surface from/to a roof face or floor without "entering" the 2d world. Just draw the shape you wish to add or clip (in top plan view) select both objects and add or clip away. Saves a few clicks, and also allows context to be maintained...

You can certainly make a skylight: the mechanism is very much part of the package. It's desrcibed in VW Help in detail.

Unfortunately it only works with roof objects, not roof faces, so I have to do them the hard way.
