Design roof with multiple slopes

Sun Power Spain 365

Recommended Posts


We are having a problem to design( with polygon) complex roofs with several faces and slopes, in the tutorials that were enclosed after the acquisition of the programme it shows how to design flat roofs or roofs with 2 to 4 slopes,

in simple roofs while you are making the polygon you must press "Enter" to generate a vertex, but we can't find the way to put multiple vertices.

when designing a roof like this (multiple cases in residential areas) we would like to know how to do it,

thank you very much in advance and best regards.

Hi Sun Power Spain 365,

welcome to the forum! The current 3D lacks complex design operations in the editor.

The best way to save time and nerves is to design the model with a 3D programme and then import it into PV*SOL.

Albeit the steep learning curve I would recommend either https://www.freecad.org/ or https://www.blender.org/.

The .obj format is so far the best suited for PV*SOL.

I hope this helps! If you have further questions, feel free to ask!

Best regards,
