Creating conical roofs


Conical Roofs

  1. Start the ‘Roof by Footprint’ tool.
  2. Sketch in a circle representing the outline of the roof.
  3. Give the sketch lines a ‘Defines Slope’, and set the Slope.
  4. Finish the sketch.

To give the round sketch lines some segments, select them and set the ‘Number of Full Segment’ parameter to anything other than 0.
