I am trying to model a hipped roof with en equal roof pitches. I would like all of the roof faces to meet at the same ridge point, but they won't. What would be the best way to go about modeling this type of roof. See the attached image Post edited on 2005-12-29 15:49:03

I think you could use the arrows to create your roof, instead of slope. Draw the arrows so they intersect in they same point , the apex, (probably they are not going to have the same slope), Althpugh, I think is the only way. Good luck.

Try creating two seperate roofs and then join the two geometrys.  It could possibly be three roofs that may need to be joined.  This has worked for us in the past.  Good Luck.

The best way to do it is using slope arrows.  You'll want to determine what the elevation of your ridge is at.  In the first picture I attached, the vertical and horizontal arrows specify the slope (see second picture) while the diagonal arrow specifies elevations at both ends of the arrow.  Make sure all the lines that are to define a slope have the tail of an arrow attached to them.

Another way is to calculate the pitch.  For instance, if my roof slopes up 10' over a 24' span (5:12 slope) on the two sides, and slopes up to the same 10' over a 26' span on the angled side, the slope for that side is going to be about 4 3/8:12.  Divded overall rise by overall run and times by 12.
