floor plan & pitched roofs?

Recommended Posts

So while you can fake this. What happens when you want to change the roof, you have to do a lot of actions before it looks allright again. I've downloaded a trial version of Archicad, while this is not really the program I prefer right now, the rooftool is much better in my opinion. You can even set components!! I don't understand why Nemetschek haven't upgraded this fundamental tool after all these years!

I hope this will be addressed to in a service pack release so we don't have to wait another year....

It isn't that hard once you get it right. But it's true that the roof needs to be updated.

Not at all, all you probably need to do more is adjust the Floor SLVP crop.

It is indeed, on the other hand if you can't create a roof with that tool the options for a work around are very limited.....

Nice drawings! Your right, for the 3d break away drawings my method won't work. I was speaking from a 2d construction document aspect for the presentation. Here is an example:

As mentioned I could turn off the Wall-Interior class to show just the perimeter and also turn off the plumbing class, etc. I suppose I could also render the the roof plan to approximate something like your drawings. The attic floor slab is masking the area below.

On Roof Components... I've started sandwiching multiple roof objects together to make my own components. Good for creating sheathing overlapping crowns and independent soffit and construction depths. Not so easy to manipulate future edits or cutting holes, however. At this time I don't care about linking to walls. Just give me components with independent overhang extensions and end conditions (square vs plumb).

It is strange that VWs doesn't have horizontal section capability......

But it does.

Create a viewport and put it in an Elevation view.

Select the Viewport

Use the Create Section Viewport command to draw the section line you want.

You now have a section viewport showing a horizontal section.

I stand corrected........

Probably because it takes longer to regenerate. One of the things I like about VW's (and there's a lot) is that switching to top/plan view is more or less instant... Also, different strokes and all that. This functionality is there for those who need it or want it, but it is not the default plan view functionality...
