…There are certainly other videos in this course that had us extruding a roof.…But none that had us actually doing it for our main roof.…Suppose you have a roof that is impossible to create in a plan view.…That's where roof by extrusion comes into play.…What we're going to be doing in this video is create a reference plane to…start our roof.…Then we're going to sketch out our radial profile.…Once we're finished,…we're going to extrude the roof to the other side of our building.…Sounds easy enough, so let's get started.…Open up your edit roofs model or, of course,…any model that you may be working on.…
The first thing I'd like to do is go to our three roof floor plan…in the project browser.…On the Architecture tab, go ahead and…click on the Reference Plane button on the Work Plane panel.…On the Draw panel, click the Pick Lines button.…Let's get it an offset of two feet.…I'm going to hover my cursor over the outside face of this wall.…When I see my alignment line go to the left, I'm going to go ahead and…pick the wall.…
