How to create pitched roofs with floorpsacejs?

I've been trying out floorspacejs in the OS 2.6 and it is not clear how to specify a pitched roof for a building. Is this an implemented feature? There's a drop-down menu under "pitched roof" in the expanded navigator window but no options in it.

Thanks in advance.

There was some effort towards accommodating pitched roofs in FloorSpaceJS/OpenStudio, but it has not yet been completed. So unfortunately the feature is not currently available.

Thanks for the quick response. It's unfortunate this feature is not available yet, I think floorspacejs could otherwise cover a lot of our needs right now.

Hi, it seems that featrue (pitched roof) is still not available in Floorspace JS? Thanks in advance

It's still not available today. There are some OpenStudio methods to support this, but Floorspace JS has not been updated to use them.

I am a first time user of Floorspace JS trying to apply some of its functions to an advanced prefab homebuilder's catalog of options and came up with a similar question in regards to upstairs spaces. We could do fine for our level of detail if there was a feature that gave an input to simplify the treatment of quasi-vaulted spaces...especially when we already know the overall air volume of those. Great product though and I'm glad I found this forum and people discussing it, thanks!
