How can I put a curved roof into my drawing, I was planning on just doing a normal roof and then editing the profile but it wont let me edit the profile for roofs or for floors. Any suggestions?

I recently designed a project that had a curved & I ran into a similar problem. I created a Solid Form – Solid Extrusion & gave it properties of a standing seam metal roof system attached is a photo. I hope this will help you.

did you see "Cut Plan Profile" for extruded roofs in the Options Bar? Basically does the same as "Edit Profile" does for walls, but works for Roofs created "By Extrusion" after clicking the Roof Tool.

Thanks both for the help, I was able to do that easily. Now I have a roof that slopes in different directions, and because of just how the numbers work out, if I do the roofs seperatly to make the different slopes they dont line up. Basicly what I have is a pyrmidal shaped roof, sloping away from the "center of gravity" of the box like building and then around the edges it slopes back up. I tired to take two extruded roofs and then form them together but it wont let me do that. Is there a way to do a 2D extrustion so i can have it slope in multiple directions. Or how shuold I do that?
