    Help on curved bay window roof

    I'm having some trouble modeling a standing seam metal roof above a curved bay window. Below I have drawn two sweep profiles and two paths I need them to follow, straight, and curved. Since using Sweep Blend only allows for one path I haven't found a good way to make this. any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    For anyone that might be wondering -

    Roof by Face is the answer. I sketched the edges of my standing seam panel using reference lines within an in-place mass editor, then created forms which represent the panels (without thickness). I did however have to facet the curve to avoid a triangular mesh.

    once the mesh is there you can use the roof by face tool to build up a roof.
