VisualARQ 2.0 sneak preview: new roof features

VisualARQ 2.0 will come with plenty of enhancements regarding the Roof command.

In this sneak preview video you can see some of these new features:

New insert dialog

The roof object will have an insert dialog, like the rest of VisualARQ objects, from which you will be able to choose some insert parameters such as the roof type (hip, gable or shed), the cut edge type, or the slope angle.

Inserting it will be easy like drawing a rectangle (or like inserting slabs), including the option to pick 3 points from the command line. The roof ridge will be automatically aligned with the longest side.

The option to create roofs from boundary curves will be still available.

Multilayer roof styles

Roofs will be composed of slabs. This means that the roof styles will take one of the existing slab styles in the document and therefore they will be multilayer. It will be possible to create new roof styles by editing an existing slab style or creating new slab styles from a shortcut button.

Roof intersections

When two roofs touch each other, the intersection between them will be automatically calculated. This interopearability will provide many new roof combinations and new designs that could not be done before.

Roofs from surfaces

Finally, it will be possible to create roofs from surfaces, no matter how complex they are. This operation will apply an offset to that surface according to the roof style thickness and will convert the resulting object into a roof.
