    Barrel Vault Roof

    I came across this post in the other Forum:

    1. Make a roof the thickness of the underlying diaphragm
    2. Copy the lines that made that roof & make a new roof by pasting those lines
    3. Turn it into a sloped glazing roof & set the grid lines to 11" o.c.
    4. Load the profiles provided by me and make new mullions out of them
    5. Put a quad corner mullion with a material that is 100% transparent at the ridges to clean up the intersecting tile
    6. Make a new Facia with profile for the ridge cap and apply the facia to the ridges and offset vertically 3"
    7. Use profile to make a new gutter family to be used at roof edges.

    This work around should be credited to Taylor Osburne. These families were also provided by him.


    Could someone provide a more detailed explanation, especially for steps 2 and 6?

    Thanks

    It seems that you posted a very detailed answer, but what was the question? I see that the title says "Barrel vault roof", but can you please elaborate a little more on what you are trying to achieve, perhaps posting an illustration?

      I think the questions are how to do points 2 and 6

      2. Copy the lines that made that roof & make a new roof by pasting those lines
      6. Make a new Facia with profile for the ridge cap and apply the facia to the ridges and offset vertically 3"

        Sample File attached

        I have attached a test roof that I am working on. See the problem I am having with the joining at the ridge line. Any suggestions as to how to fix that would be appreciated.

        Thanks

          Sorry Max.

          You´ll never get a satisfying result with this technique.
          1. The Ridge/Hip "Facias" won´t clean up as you want them to...
          2. The "Tiles" wont be chamfered to align with the hip, and therefor end up being to short, or sticking out on the other side of the hip...

            You could do something like this with beam systems.
            With a beam you can build in a void which will allow you to cut the tiles at the ridge. If it's a once off you could even just cut the beams to a ref plane.

            But do be honest, this level of detailing will bog down any model. I have seen people do it for roof sheeting and regen times go out the window on large roofs
