Vectorworks Tip 439 – Creating a Curved Roof

I used to create a curve roof using several components (roof face, extrusion, roof face). Recently, I’ve been using another technique to create my curve roof. The first step is to create a polyline with the inside shape that you want. This makes it easy to create the correct curve for your roof.
The next step is to extrude that polyline to the required length. Now you have a 3-D object you can use the shell solid tool to give this object to thickness. Now that you have required roof, you can use the Fit Walls to Objects… command to get your walls to fit to this curve roof.
