    Notch A Roof By Extrusion

    Okay, let me try to explain this. I have a gambrel roof by extrusion. Where my cupola's are, the window is below the ridge of the roof. So, I need to notch out the roof and create a "flat roof" section. How would I do that on a roof by extrusion? I can't just put in a hole. The only thing I can think of is to create a family with a void that will cut the roof, and extrusions that will fill in the hole the way I want it. Is that the only way??

    Opening Vertical tool to cut out any shape you like on extruded roofs. So cut out shape then just run another extruded roof (flat) where you need it, easy!

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

      Didn't even think about doing another roof. :banghead:

      What about the sides of the newly created opening? How do you propose to fill that in?

        How do I propose ? didn't know I was on payroll :laugh:
        Simple walls attached to underside of roof.
        Check this out opening vertical and extruded roof's, great fun !

          Alex didn't pay you yet?? I'll have to talk to him about that...

          Yeah, walls. DUH!! :laugh: Actually, it was pretty painless because the roof itself was thick enough to cover it up. Thanks Mark!

            I can't test ATM (am on train) though couldn't you use the dorma opening tool? It will generate boundaries with roof and walls....

            Create your support walls along the slope
            create your flat roof using the 2 walls as edge constraints.
            Create dorma opening using roof and walls.

            Join/attach walls to roof. That way if you move your walls or roof, the dorma opening will change with the geometry...

            Just a thought...
            Only works upside down, as connecting roof to roof only works to top face.... :sigh:

            I used to be high on life, until I realised it was cut with Morons.
