Extruded 3D Polygon

Recommended Posts

I am trying create a difficult roof shape. I have created a 3D Polygon by selecting the three points of the roof plane. Vectorworks will not allow me to extrude the 3D Polygon. Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this?

If its a 3d polygon you want to use the push/pull tool or shell solids tool from the 3D modelling tools palette

Why not use the roof face tool? Draw a 2D polyon plan use that. You can create any roof with flat planes this way.

From the 3d Modelling ToolSet use the Set Working Plane Tool: Three Point Mode to set a WP by referencing your 3 points.

You can now draw a 2d Polygon and extrude.
