I am trying put a curved roof over a whole section of building.

Auto insert and change 3 of the sides to gable.

It only seems to work in 1 direction.

The other side of the house with a similar roof will not draw the flat section.

Mirror it 180 deg and it draws it??

Any ideas?

G'day Jon!
Don't ask questions . . . . then you always have an excuse for a cuppa & a KitKat  Grin

Do you want to drop a picture on line? I'm curious now.

Yes, unable to see if it can be duplicated without specifics.
Duplicate KitKat would be nice too!

link to some screen grabs of the project.

The lower roof is the one that took a cup of tea and a kit kat to work out.

Could it be the order that I am changing the 3 roof types to gable?

What happens when it does not work is that the curve does not cover the whole roof

G'day Jon!
I'd normally select all 3 sides & change them to Gable type in one hit, so I can't see it being an "order" issue.
Only time I've had a curved roof go awry iirc was if I missed a 0 or added an additional 0 in the radius parameter.
