How difficult a Roof can you create with the ACA Roof Object?
When do you need to convert to slabs and why? (I just don't!).
This video first creates a roof in seconds that takes a competitor product's roof tools in 'complicated roof plan' a 10min video to recreate. Ok he has an intelligent roof that will create framing to match but we could too if Adesk would update this tool created in ADT1. But note how powerful is it's shaping!
Next we look at a complex roof with issues unless you know the rules of this clever object.
Learn when to separate and create a separate roof.
Learn when you need a controlling edge to set pitch and how to do it.
We had so many rules about what this object could'nt do but as with my blog articles I have been wrong so many times. If you think it can't. It possibly can!

Thanks to Odin Cary sharing his tips,
Check out his free guide (2005) on ADT which is still very relevant today, there is a big section on Roofs and yes Roof Slabs too! (He's not as biased as I am).
I owe a lot to Odin's inquisitive nature in exploring ACA's mysteries.
