Gabled roof with edges

Recommended Posts


I have a project and I face some difficulties to deal with irregular gabled roof.   

Is there any possibility to model the gabled roof shown in the figure in PVsol? 

The problem I don't know how can I deal with these edges ( yellow circles) in PVsol, since drawing the roof from the map doesn't give the real shape of the gabled roof.

Hi Abdel,

while it would in theory be possible to create such a roof in PV*SOL by combining three buildings with a part of the roof each, I'd rather recommend the following:

  • model a standard gable roof with the maximum dimensions and then exclude the areas that do not belong to the roof surface with barred areas:
  • or model the roof in a full featured 3D modelling software like Blender or Sketchup, and then import it in PV*SOL.

Hope that helps, kind regards,
