has anyone successfully modeled a double sloped hipped roof? I am currently modeling an existing project with such a roof, and I am having a hard time getting the roof to work properly. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I usually try to simplify the roof like drawing complete roof and then using the opening tool  for cleaning unwanted part of roof.

gday,

petep it looks like to me you are pitching the "flatter" of the 2 roof pitches at same ht as adjacent roof planes.

And the upper roof is slightly steeper than the adjacent roof pitch so that ridge ht is maintained.

if that is the case, the hip corner should have a bit of crank in it , at the point of change in roof pitch.

its not apparent from the view angle of the pic shown if the hip has a bend in it. in other words, in a plan view the hip would be at 45 deg from ridge to change in pitch and then veer off to compensate for the lesser slope.

hope that all makes sense.

the other thing to try, maybe make it as 2 roofs, and merge them together, cut out overlaps then join geometry.

regards

geoffm
