Does anyone know how to edit a curved roof by extrusion? My building shape is elliptical and the roof generated is rectangular after doing the roof extrusion. Attached is what it is doing right now. I'm trying to cut out the corners of the rectangular roof to go with the curve of the tower below it. Would it be any easier by massing? Thanks!

"I'm trying to cut out the corners of the rectangular roof to go with the curve of the tower below it." - At "HOME" tab go to "Opening>Vertical Opening" and cut those corners.

Or with "Model In-Place" in Roof category you can create a VOID to cut what you want.

Typhoon, it is not allowing me to cut the roof that way. I'm doing a roof mass and trying to cut it with the void form, but it is not allowing me to cut or remove those edges.

You said you created that roof by "EXTRUSION" not by "roof by face" but with an In-place void in ROOF CATEGORY you can cut that too, you are doing something wrong... after you create the void use the "CUT GEOMETRY" tool, select the void then the roof.
