Roof Line

Defines the structure of the roof. The rectangular default roof can be changed to L-shaped, cross-like or to other custom shapes.

The tool is used as follows:

  • Select a roof. The roof line tool appears to the tool bar. Click it.
  • From a top view, click points to define a poly line. The ends of the line do not have to match exactly with the building.
  • Click accept to finish the tool.

The tool can be applied multiple times to achieve complex branching roof structures. Defined roof lines are stored as NURBS objects into the 'roof lines' sub folder of the roof object. Editing the NURBS poly lines updates the roof.

[Note] Note
The current version does not allow variable elevation of roof lines. All lines must be at the same height.
