Ideas for how to model a Thatched Roof?

Good morning all

Just wondering if anybody has had any experience with this sort of thing?

I am modelling a cottage ready to render in Vray but I am a totally lost as to how to model the thatched roof.

I have attached a photo of the cottage itself and would appreciate any inspiration anybody can give to get me started.

I use SketchUp Pro 2019

Many thanks as always.

Hi mihai.s

Could you let me know what the first extension you used is called please.

I’ve searched ‘Round Corner’ in the Extension Warehouse & I cannot see the one you are using.



Look on sketchucation extension store. Most of Fredo6 extensions are there, not in EW.

Thanks very much for that info slbaumgartner

I haven’t been on that site before - it looks a great site and that Round Corner extension seems to be just the job!

Have a good one
