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:

"Architectural visualization live online seminar"
In my career I have been using ArchiCAD since version 6.5 for mainly design development and documentation. Between working hours and lost sleep, I would take my ArchiCad documentation model and love to spend long leisurely hours setting up lighting and materials, placing furniture, landscaping, etc and rendering my projects. Some rare occasions the rendering was on commission for a client, but mostly it was to satisfy my itch to create beautiful renders.
I. ArchiCad DWF Publishing Setup & Tools
II. ArchiCad DWF Web Tools & communication
III. Importing Mark-up / Redlining info from DWF Web files into ArchiCad
In a case like this the handling of a) Libraries, b) Modules, c) Linked External files & d) Attributes is curtail to the successful migration.
These steps will apply as example for a solo project with no linked modules or linked DWG / PDF / image files:
1. Download & install “ArchiCAD 10 Packages - open files from version 6.5 and ArchiCAD 7.0 Packages “ http://www.graphisoft.com/support/archicad/downloads/Fileconverter.html
2. Open the installed “ArchiCAD 10 “ and on the menu go to File/Open then Browse & select your ArchiCad 7 project Click OPEN
3. The Library Manager will open. Browse to the ArchiCad 7 Library on your computer / server and Add it to the library list
Some users struggle with this in the beginning because ArchiCad works with pens rather different than other 2D / CAD and 3D / BIM software products. I do not mind focusing on this aspect when needed at all, because everything in ArchiCad changes from struggling to "plain sailing" once you grasp this different but rather simple concept.
The easiest way for me to explain this to you in shortest terms is to refer to this section below in ArchiCad’s Help Menu ("HELP> Configuration > Attributes > Pen Sets > Predefined Pen Sets for Specific Functions"):
