    Default Gambrel roofs

    I'm doing a prelim with a barn style "gambrel" roof. What's the best way to do this if you've done those before?

    Thanks, first gambrel ever for me

    I can make the roof with no problem via roof by extrusion, however, I also want to add dormers, but it won't let me edit it to cut holes in the roof I just created. So if anyone can help me/give me pointers on how to cut holes in a roof created by extrusion, please help me...

    Thank you!

    Places toi dans une vue d'étage au dessus du toit
    sélectionnes le
    et utilise le bouton "Cut plan profile"
    MAintenant t upeux modifier le profil pour y faire une ouverture

    Go to on a floor plan to the top of the roof
    select it
    and uses the button "plane Cut profile"
    Now you can modify the profile to make an opening there

    Even better, use the Opening tool on the Modelling Tab, select "Pick a roof to be cut by a dormer opening."

    I tried this method first, and it seems that I can make the void this way, but the opening takes out (it seems) a space (in plan view) from left to right, but the void goes an infinate z axis. I didn't want to cut out above a certain height. It seems it just goes up in the sky forever and I had no control over that. (Are there more controls to only let it cut to a certain elevation height?)

    So I did what Scott said (I've never had to use the opening tool yet) and it worked like a charm. Thanks for the input guys, and thanks for the tip Scott, you saved me last night on IM.

    Now I just hope they like the style of the garage/bonus room being a gambrel. I think it looks sweet and gives a huge bonus room that a regular style of roof could not have done.

    Kroke,

    C'est une bonne chose que tu aies pu mieux profiter de ta nuit.
    Juste une chose, je n'ai pas pu traduire Gambrel.
    peux tu me faire une petite image ?

    It is a good thing which you could better benefit from your night.
    Just a thing, I could not translate Gambrel.
    can you post me a small picture ?

    FYI I only speak two languages: English and foul.

    Here is a gambrel roof example:
