Join @TheOnlyAaron this Friday as he models some pitch perfect roofs.
LET’S DO THIS THING!!!
Well, let’s do this thing in about 30 minutes…
excited to see how you’re going to pitch this Aaron …
Not sure if this is of any interest - but Vali Architects do an EXCELLENT (although not cheap) plugin called Instant Roof. It’s really very good.
Great session guys, thanks for all the info and tips. Have a great tme off Aaron.
I really enjoyed this session, very interesting and educational, also learned a few new tricks myself (specifically the follow me tool for generating complex roofs with one common pitch).
With my own complex roof module the situation where I have the algorithm breaking down is where the fascia line or gutter line is non-continuous (vertically) around the roof. It is a bit difficult to explain this particular situation in words but the model below presents an excellent example of what I am describing:

This session and subsequent thought has my gears turning again and maybe I can devise a more general algorithm that will successfully model even a complex roof with a non-continuous fascia.
