Dear All, I am trying to model a building with some light wells. An example can be found in the attached files. I can do the design but now I have to make its roof inclined (please see the second image). The problem I am facing is, I cant extrude that and google sketchup says Offset limited to 0m. Any ideas to model this kind of design in open studio.C:\fakepath\Capture1.JPG


Thanks in advance for your time.

Kindest Regards Muhammad

Here is a link to an old tutorial video showing how to make a cross sloped roof, it may serve as a good guide for you. (no audio on this one)

Here is another video that may be useful that discusses splitting up the roof into multiple base surfaces to support adding a clerestory.
