Basic Roof Modeling Exercise (Part 2)


Hey guys, let’s continue the roof exercise. To make this hipped roof, you can adjust the slop on direction. You can also use the shape handle to push and pull it. You can add overhang of course. Next one, this roof, with different height on each sides. First, create a gable roof. Then, edit the sketch, select one of the sketch line, adjust the height offset. That’s it. This saw roof can be modeled using roof by extrusion. This roof is similar to the Dutch roof. Okay, let’s model this roof with a dormer window. First, create a gable roof. Next, you need to create the wall for the dormer window first. Copy the wall to create a new wall. Rotate it by 90 degrees. Copy it and use Spacebar to flit it. Adjust the base and top constraint. Create the third wall. Trim and move them to the position. Adjust the height roughly. Create a roof, use Pick Wall and pick the 3 little walls. As well as the internal edge of the wall. Adjust the slop to make it a gable. Adjust the height. Make sure the roof edge is on the external side of the wall. Attach (Top) the wall to the roof. Attach (Base) the walls to the roof. Use the Join/Unjoin Roof tool, click on the internal side of the small roof, then click on the big roof. Adjust the roofs so the small roof is lower than the top of the big one. Looking good. Now we just need to create the opening. Use the Dormer tool in Opening Ribbon. Use Pick Walls, and pick the 3 little walls, this time you need to adjust the lines to the internal side of the walls. Also use Pick Roof and pick the little roof. All done, you can see that the opening has been created. Of course you can add overhang. Now if you move the wall to adjust the side, not only the roof, but the opening will adjust automatically. That’s it, a roof with a dormer window. Next one…… Let’s model a roof using Modify Sub Elements. Edit the roof and uncheck all the slope. Select the roof, edit the elevation of the points. You can also add aplit lines… You can create some funny shape using this method. This concludes the second part of basic roof modeling exercise. Hope you find it useful. Thanks for watching and I will see you soon.
