Event Type:
Roof Designs in Archicad

PREMIUM MEMBERS – Roof designs are often more complicated than drawing a shed roof and can present many problems in aligning roof slopes. During this course we will review how to model with Archicad’s roof tool, including using Single Plane and Multi Plane geometry methods, working with multi-level roof designs, accessing Roof Elevations in the 3D Window and strategies to modeling complicated roof designs.

This lesson includes an introduction and lesson overview, a hands-on demonstration of the topic in Archicad, and a Q&A with our experienced Archicad instructor. An intermediate level course, it is appropriate for Archicad and Archicad Solo users.
