    Well, if you dont want to type out all the issues, why not just copy and paste your multi roof solution in to a blank file, so we can all see it? Otherwise, we agree to disagree. Its doable.

      That issue about the fascia does not explain why you have to do the roof one pitch at a time, though.

        Network doesn't like this forum's file upload function
        I saved the groups (yes another thing for you to comment on) to individual files and uploaded them. This should work...

        La page que vous avez désirez atteindre n'existe pas (ou plus). Excusez-nous pour la gêne occasionnée ...


        This contains a lot of the relevant details.


        @MDR about the 'previous CAD' comment: that was before BIM. And do we really want to return to that?

        @TRF I cant even be bothered to remember all the issues. Dont make me remind them plz!

          I agre with Alfredo. the model can be made without Slope Arrows. @Clogboy - could you provide us with at detail of the roof end in section.

            Have to agree with Clogboy! It can´t be done without splitting the roofs

              Now thats a challenge... or I don't get it. What's that with the 100mm. I have to get more detail, maybe in 2D to do the 3D

                  Ill have to download the file and look at it this weekend. Have been in meetings all morning.

                  @clogboy: Im not trying to make you remember them all, im more than happy to agree to disagree on the issue. But you cant expect evryone to just *accept* that it cant be done, when it looks seemingly possible and you dont remember why it cant.

                    Maybe I'm wrong here, but give it at try...
                    Make gable line adjust to the full extend of the roof. If you then have to pull the construction back 100mm, customize a roofbased Void family for this one instance (Don't bother with parametrics). I did a quick try with an In-Place Family (Dont't tell anybody, I try to avoid them) and it works. Maybe actually this an instance where the In-Place family comes to it's rights.

                    Still there could be a lot more to it, so until the details arrives this what I can contribute with.

                      Peter, you could be on to something there... but is that the right attachment?
