Good afternoon.

 

Hope all had a great holiday.

I have a client that wishes the porch roof to 'sway' for a lack of proper term, into the main house roof.

Typically I take the elevation and create the look with curved line. If I knew the term for this look maybe

I could find it in help. Can anyone, I'm sure there is, help me to achieve this in roof mode?

Attached is the sample client provided.

 

Thank you.

 

Doug

Doug-

Edit the roof edge and change to "profile".

 

Then select concave in the box below. You will have to experiment with the dimensions to get the look you want, but this should get you on the right track.

Also, have a look at this thread ... http://softplan.com/...d-roof-dormers/ ... I'm sure it's not quite what you are looking for, but may give you some idea's that you can adapt for what you do want.

The main house is a 10/12 and porch roof is 4/12. Does that matter?

Doesn't matter at all.
