    Walk pads attached to roof

    I was wondering if someone out there has done something like this before? I want to draw some lines and have them create 3 foot wide walk pads on the roof and attach, if possible. I'm currently using a region for the plan dwgs, the grouping them and copy/pasting to the various sectors, but that's so tedious and cumbersome, so if anyone has any thoughts, I'm all ears

    TIA

    I use a fill pattern with a 3' cross hatch model fill...so I can align if needed.

      Create a Line Based Generic Model. Go to Plan View, then Home Tab > Component. If not there yet, select the proper family. BEFORE starting placement, click Set Workplane > Pick Plane. Now pick the roof plane you want to use.

        I'm liking the line-based approach, so long as the walkway is guaranteed to always be a given width.

        We've tended to use split-face in the past as (being sketch based) it affords some degree of flexibility in places where the areas might spread, turn, or infill.... and still relates to the roof/model itself, where drafted filled regions would only be view based.

            Been modelled as a roof in the past, if it's a concrete block walkway. If it's an extra membrane layer just as a filled region on the roof plan.

              Mine are Line Based, and they place the individual pads on the surfaces.

                If its another membrane layer I would use a roof type that is just the roofing membrane. I've done this before for areas where one roof has to drain onto another and so we put a "sacrificial" layer of roofing at the base of it.
