    Butterfly Roof - How to build in Home Designer Pro v8

    Hi:

    I've been experimenting with the Roof tools in Designer Pro v8 for a while, with the aim of designing a Butterfly Roof. However, I can't seem to accomplish it. There aren't any instructions addressing this kind of roof in the help system, nor have I found any discussion of Butterfly roofs in the forums here.

    If anyone has some advice on the matter, I would be grateful!

    Thanks!

    The only way I could get close with the automatic tools in Architectural was to create two separate structures each defined as their own Shed roofs and then move them in close enough for the roof plane edges to touch, turn off Auto Rebuild Roofs, and then get rid of the extra walls separating in to two structures.

    However, with your Pro, it should be relatively easy for you to manually create the roof, rather than use the automatic tools.
