Perpendicular ridges

Postby JPRitchie » Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:22 pm

I've been using the "create rafters, battens.." for some hip roofs. It usually works okay. But perpendicular ridges that touch can cause a failure. This can happen when the ridges are at the same height. A work-around is to draw a line to break the face into two faces, as shown. Otherwise, the unbroken face has two line segments at top. Drawing the line gives faces with undivided straight lines. Otherwise the tool doesn't work at all.
Best wishes,
Draw the line to break the face and everything works.
