Drawing a Roof Shape

There are several styles of roofs available in Architect 3D. Automatic dimensioning makes it easy to achieve exact placement. When the tool is active you can edit the properties on the Properties pane. You can also edit the properties after the roof has been placed by selecting the roof in your drawing.

Be sure you are working on the floor where you want to add the roof. For example, to draw a roof over a one-story structure you should be on the first floor.
