This program rocks! well done everyone :-)

A roofing category is definitely something that is needed.

Also, I'm designing an earth-sheltered home which means I need a dome roof and inclined walls starting on the ground floor. To have an idea of the kind of shapes your library would need to supply, goto their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/formworks.building?sk=photos_albums

thanks for your help

    You will find a few different roofs if you search for roof in 3D models.

    I may be wrong, but I think ticket 257 has a library with something you might use - called circular roof or something.

    ok

      thanks.

      I'll take a look.

      BTW, I was able to create my outer shell for my earth sheltered home (see
      attached) using the "Create wall" button and the various techniques
      explained in a few post and videos. I still haven't figured out how I'm
      going to close the backend of the house in a semi-circular fashion.

      However, the end result is a 3 level structure defined within level 0.
      Adding furniture and levels, plus maneuvering the objects inside the space
      is frustrating since it wants to add everything on the roof! I wish there
      was an easier way to work in this program with the house form I want to use.

      If I want to maintain the ease of use of the program for manipulation
      furniture pieces and adding floor levels, I'm now considering breaking down
      the one structure into numerous pieces of furniture, floor by floor, wall
      by wall! This is not a process I'm looking forward to tackle!

      Regards,
      Pierre
