How to model a Bali roof in ArchiCAD?
Well actually I first did a Google search for "bali roof" images to be sure I understand what a "bali roof" should look like. Another clue also came from Djordje asking Mhlekazi to qualifying if this roof must be thatch or tiles.
Here is part of what the image search on Google came up with:
The Google image search came up with a multitude of interpretations and/or permutations for the term "bali roof" as you can see. I then chose a shape of tiled roof that stood out to me as the most frequent in this group to compile a infograph type ArchiCAD tutorial to make it easy for Mhlekazi to replicate and get the bali roof he wanted by using the standard ArchiCAD Roof tool.
After sending him this ArchiCAD Tutorial via email as he requested, I decided to also share it on our Facebook Page and in this blog post so that many more can discover how easy and versatile the ArchiCAD modeling and documentation tools are. You are welcome to share this post with anyone and also download the high resolution PDF format of this single page step-by-step ArchiCAD Tutorial.
