I'm trying to get a standing seam roof to follow the curvature of the barrel vault roof.  I've tried a roof by extrustion and roof by face off of a mass element.  Both methods only result in a flat roof.

 

Other than using sweeps to create the standing seams is there a way to get this to work?  I"m placing a large barrel vault roof as an overbuild over a standing seam gable.

Do you actually need to see the standing seams in 3D? I would just give the roof surface parallel lines to represent the standing seam lines. This would make it look correct in plan and elevation. When you zoom in and create your section details of the standing seams, then you can just add in a 2D repeating standing seam component.

Alternatively you could - as you say - create a profile of the standing seam and extrude that profile through the curvature of your roof.

Typically, we use a material and that produces the correct affect for normal views and renders.   If that is not enough for you, then use a flat material and a model element.  If you need a lot of these sweeps, I would use a family rather than an in-place element.

I managed to get the problem solved.  Both grids needed a length.  Such a simple solution.

 

Then I went and broke it trying to put a barrel vault intersecting a gable.  The small segments at the join kept breaking.  I wound up changing the barrel vault to a gable which in turn became a whole new problem.  But it works now.
