Please refer to the following screen shots in my question below:
Struggling to find the best way to give thickness to this flat surface hip roof - Figure A
So that it looks like Figure B (obviously I’ve achieved it in the end, but only by manually drawing every single edge with the line tool!)
The built in Push Pull tools works great, except it leaves these ridges - Figure C
Tried using the extension Joint Push Pull. This works well and gets rid of the ridge issues by extruding as a single surface. However, it is not extruded perpendicular to the exposed front edges, so I cannot extrude out to form the roof lip in the same plane as the roof (it sticks out a bit more horizontally as shown Figure D). The built-in Push Pull above didn’t have this issue.
Finally there is the gaps in the four corners of the roof after extracting the overhang (not too bothered about this, as fairly easy to heal manually).
Surely there must be simple way to extract a non-coplanar surface like this to give it thickness without having ridges to heal? Sorry if I’ve missed something, new to Sketchup and on a learning curve…
