sloped roof in equest

Hi All

I am trying to model a sunroom which has sloped roof.
I made the model in SD wizard but when am changing the vertices in the
design data model mode to change the roof to sloped, am not able to save
the changes if I open the wizard again.
Also if I create a new polygon (triangle shaped to complete the sloped
roof), am not able to see that in my model.
if anyone have any inputs, it will be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Regards
Deepika

Equest won't allow you to create in the wizard then, switch out of the wizard to make changes then, back again with the changes made. Once you switch out of the wizard, you stuck.

Which is why you keep a Wizard copy of your file. When I convert to the Detailed
Edit mode, I save as FILENAME-DETAIL. Then if I need to go back, I have my
original Wizard file.

Deepika,

One of the common mistakes I make when I create a roof in DD edit is
forgetting to locate it at the right height. Make sure your z=building
height or wall height, whichever is appropriate. It's not too hard to do
this in DD edit as long as you keep track of the x, y, z, tilt and azimuth.
Kudos for you for tackling it!

thanks all

I actually succeeded in making anew polygon to create the new roof....
However, in the triangle shaped side wall of the sloping roof, I want to add
glass for skylight. the polygon properties does not allow me to add triangle
shaped glass to the roof.
Is there a way to do it?
Thanks
