Many thanks ,sorry that seems so obviuos. I was deleting a segment and redrawing it over and over and… Never filled in, thanks for filling ME in!
O.k. so, got that. Now tring to get the ridge of the hip to fill in. Since the ridge diminishes as the pitch changes(lessens) the follow me will not work for the scenario. On another part of the primary model I used curviloft. But it does not seem to be working for me here. Unsure if it just takes a while to skin or… dunno. Ultimately Id like to be able to edit portions of the ridge cut if needed, to show locations of abutting members.
Attached is the revised component ,with a ridge line in place,connected to primary part of component at top and bottom,but unsure how to proceed… Any thoughts?sumiki 1-25.skp (36.8 KB)

also, looking at the component and think I may want to smooth out the curved ridge a bit before filling in?
I am hoping to draw this in SU then be able to use the info on the model to plot out full size on the floor at my shop to create templates for laying out parts of the roof.
