Inserting Roofs

There are three different ways to insert roofs.

The polygon is then automatically closed, i.e. the last point is connected to the first. On input, each point of the polygon defines a roof plane, whereby points on the same line are merged together.

When the contour of the roof has been entered using one of these three methods, the ‘Roof construction’ dialog is opened.
