Question:How is a standard 4-sloped roof modeled in Advance Concrete?
A standard 4-sloped roof has a 45° sloped angle. To create a 4-sloped roof:
- Draw a simple slab where the roof should be placed. This slab will be modified afterwards using the control surfaces.
- Use a polyline to define the two main slopes, which are required for the creation of the control surfaces.
- The red polyline orientation is correct, while the blue polyline must be rotated 90° to obtain a concave definition of the control surface.
- Next, launch the "Create a roof..." command and select one of the two polylines.
- Next, select both control surfaces and access their properties menu from the Smartbar.
- In the "Roof fusion" section, select the "Retain bottom part" option.
- Click OK to finish:
- Launch the "Combine roofs..." command to merge the two control surfaces.
- Select the newly created roof surface and the slab (or any structural member reaching the roof height), and use the "Bind elements to the roof..." command to create the 4-sloped roof.
|The control surface defined by the blue polyline must be placed horizontally (covering the entire slab).||The control surface defined by the red polyline
must be placed vertically.
After placing both control surfaces, their combination should look like this:
