    Unhappy Need help with in place mass with divided surface

    currently im working on a project where i need 3D roof tiles, i normally use a sloped glazing family, but because this roof plane isnt perfectly square that doesnt work.

    Now im trying to do that with a in place mass with divided surface, i did this before, but i just cant get the panels to line up, they are always at an angle and impossible to get them vertical. in my other model it used them on, i did not need to do anything to the angle.

    I have to use this model to make 3D impressions, all my models before had 3D tiles and i want this one to have them to. without them it would look terrible. i am using a normal roof for now, hope the client still likes it.

    here is a google drive link with the project.

    These 3d roof tiles can be created via generic model adaptive family component and can also be placed as a beam system where you can create this roof tile in the structural frame family. Let me see if I can place these roof tiles on this type of roof and then I will inform you.

    I have created a single roof tile in the curtain family pattern based template file and then I have uploaded and placed them on the roof using the massing and dividing surface into rectangular patterns.. See the attachments.

    From the picture which you have attached it seems that you have not arranged the U grid and V grid. I have kept the dimensions of the grid the same as the dimensions of the curtain panel pattern. I do not have the laptop with me right now. I will attach the family file once I have it.

    This is a common roof type in the Netherlands on older farmhouses and others, some modern houses like to bring that back a little. We call it a wolfsdak. for my client i have done a lot of other different versions of this house, with different roofs and window layouts, and this is just one of them, some other have just square roof planes, where i use my sloped glazing type no problem..

    Okay, but where exactly is it not planar? In section, is it curved? If so, id probably do it with a Roof by extrusion, with vertical openings for the hips. Could still use sloped glazing then.
