Anyone have an idea of how to add a new hip roof onto an existing hip roof without modifying the existing roof?  I would like to keep the existing roof intact and then over frame the new roof onto the old one in order to join the two.  I'm trying to model it this way in order to show how it will be built. 

Thanks!

Make your new roof longer so that it fully intersects your existing roof.  Use the join geometry tool and you will see what geometry you will have when it's buit.  Trace the valley lines then edit your new roof to those lines and unjoin the geometry.  The roofs will now be correct in plan but not really in section. 

 

If you want them to be correct in the model (I don't know why you would), you can build them using a void that will cut your new roof at your existing roof slope.

Thank you for the help!  I did extend the new roof and got it to look correct in plan and 3d. 

 So there is no way to show the actual overframing that will be on the existing roof? 

Is there a way I would be able to model the actual framing with 2x4's etc, instead of using a wall type? 

I'm basically just using this as a tool for a personal project.  I would like to model all the framing before I get into the real thing. 

 Thanks again for the help!

Sure .... you could model each individual 2x but why?  We would not do this in the office.  No reason to do that unless you are making some sort of framing diagram.  Even then we would probably stick diagram it.  Just too much to model and it really clogs up the program.  That's whay 2x walls don't really have studs in them.  Just the space where the studs would be.
