The Roof tab allows you to edit the design of your roof. In here you can change the ridges, rafters, add roof vents, box gutters, and edit other components of the roof.
Rapid Apply Mode
UDesign has a feature called Rapid Apply which adds items with a click of the mouse. This applies to most items in the roof tab and instructions are provided in the yellow strip below the ribbon bar that appears when a Rapid Apply option is selected.
Moving the Ridge and rafters
Ridges and rafters can be moved manually using the left mouse button. Click once, and holding down the left mouse button, move from left to right, up or down.
Altering the Span, Projection and Ridge Length
In most cases, you are able to alter the span, projection and ridge length by double clicking on the dimension given for the chosen component.
– Freehand Editor – This will open your current design in the Bespoke/Freehand Editor.
– BG / Wall – If a full or partial box gutter is required on your design, this tool will allow you to add the dimensions of the box gutter that you need. It also allows you to change a wall to a house wall of gable/fire wall with one click.
– Gable End – When designing a conservatory with a gabled section, this tool gives you options to change the gable design (mullion, sunburst, firring, raked head, etc), create a custom gable design or even add a gable support beam.
Roof Panels Section
– Muntins – If your roof glazing panels are too long, muntins can be added to split the panel into smaller pieces. You also have the option to set the number of divisions that you want in a panel, and the ability to copy/remove the muntins across the whole roof.
