please see attached file

 

I want to remove the end parts of the roof and extend
the end walls to the underside of the roof.
I have used the roof by footprint command.

(i dont know if this is the best way to do this.

Is it pssible to create a roof by extrusion and extrude it along a curved wall)

Edit your footprint roof sketch in plan, and uncheck "defines slope" on the ends.

 

Then Attach the wall to the roof.

 

With the normal roof tools, you can not extrude a roof along a curved path, as far as I know.

Hi

 

Thanks for your response.

 

I haved tried as you have suggested but i just get a cant make roof from footprint error.

I have cheated to do what i have done. The ends of the roof are 89 degrees.

 

It is rather strange

try adding an overhang and drawing the ends with straight lines, no defines slope.
