Cone Shaped Roofs

Post Posted: 08.07.2008 18:01

Can anyone lead me to examples photo's, renderings, etc. of cone shaped (preferably half cone) roofs?

Thank You!

Hi Der_Planer,

Awesome! Thanks for sharing your example. I see you converted the image to a PDF allowing me to view and rotate it. I have Adobe 8 professional. What do I need to be able to create viewable 3D PDF files?

Respectfully!

You need Adobe-3D and Dietrich's 3d-dxf-export.

Der_Planer,

It appears I have 3D dxf export, I also have export (VRML) so do I really need Adobe-3D this must be a program for purchase and not a free down load? What is the advantage of Adobe 3D? I have not yet used export (VRML) I think clients can down load a viewer and then do a walk through?

Thanks!

AdobeAcrobat 3D is not free, perhaps it is 1000...1500$ ?

You can view the 3d model with the free AdobeReader version 7 or higher.
There are different possibilities to get the model from Dietrich's to Acrobat 3D:

1. you can capture it directly from OpenGL view. It's very fast. But: you cannot switch off/on/transparent single parts ,only all in one, and all parts have the same texture.

2. you can create a 3d dxf export as solids (not lines), and read them into Adobe 3D (by drag and drop). I created the cone roof model in this way. Dxf doesn't transfer textures, so the pdf model will only be colored. You can switch on/off/transparent any part (rightclick on a part and follow the menu).

3. you can also read a vrml file with textures into Adobe 3D. The result will be beautiful (Acrobat version 7 did it better than ver 8 does). But: you cannot switch the beams, but only every single face of a beam.

I prefer solution 2.

There are 1000 features more, what you can do with Acrobat 3D. Colors, textures, animations, make parts movable on click, ... and much more. But it takes a lot lot lot lot lot of time to learn it all.

Time is money, and money we have none... Wink

Hello Again,

Thanks for the options. I know one thing; I don't want to go into another learning curve with another program. I'm still in the first curve with a long road ahead in learning Dietrich's an enjoyable journey I must say.

Thanks!

No, it's not me on the pic, he is the carpenter who shall raise up the 3 cones in Timbuktu (Hotel reception).

Hi Der_Planer,

Viewing your model did you do all the modeling in D-Cam? I'm wondering if the segments (beams on top of the circular wall) were created in ground plan and the beams then entered in wall design. Was roof calculation / roof design used to create the cone shaped roof? I'm looking for a starting point as I am approaching trying to create a cone shaped roof.

Respectfully,

Kayaker

Hi Kayaker,

it's all Dicam work. No walls. No roof.

- 3D measure with Leica Builder (as you see on the photo)
- assisting geometry in ground floor, (some circles and lines)
- extruded the "wall" shape in Dicam
- created a Dicam 12 edges cone 2-2-3 to get some regular 3D clickpoints
- added beams
- turn, push, cut...
- finished.
