roof eave

Recommended Posts

I need to create a roof with differant eave heights in the same roof plane on either side of a gable. It is also over a small covered porch. I am new to VW and I have tried to ungroup the roof and clip it in the roof plan(didn't work). I have tried to pick the roof edge and change eave height but it responds with roof is to complex. How do I do it correctly?

Also with a full basement how do you display the footings?

Thank you

After ungrouping the ROOF you will end up with a number of individual ROOF FACES. To edit a ROOF FACE double click on it and you will have the POLYGON (in plan view) from which it is created. You can work on the POLY just like any 2d object, including re-sizing/re-shaping, adding and clipping surfaces, etc. When finished click "DONE" (in the upper right) and you will have your modified roof face.
