Example Roof Models

Roof models completed at full scale (1:1) using precise measurements

AppliCad has worked for over 20 years refining the roof modelling tools to the extent that we now reasonably claim that the software is capable of modelling any roof shape you will ever come across. No doubt some are more complicated than others, but if they can be physically built, then we can model it in 3D.

To produce a quotation (with a few exceptions) one must create the roof model so that we can simulate the application of the roof material. From this simulation we extract the EXACT material quantities, roof supply and install quotation, material orders and workshop details - using report templates that you create yourself, to suit your particular business needs.

Below we have collated screen shots and examples of a few of the models that we have produced at the support centre to demonstrate some of the roof modelling features.



Block Cut

'Block-Cut' sheet waste optimiser.

Pitch Measure

Pitch Measure from aerial obliques.

Screen shot of radiation map.

Animated Shadow analysis to understand best location of solar assets.

Pic of Florida Church.

3D Model of Florida Church with metal panel cutting list.

Exploded view of metal roof with parapets and awning.

Multi-hip roof with different eave heights.

Continuous roof shape.

Panel layout with translucent panel insert.

Roof model digitised from PDF, JPG, scanned plan or satellite image.

Workshop details for 'bull-nosed' awning.

No roof outline is too complex.

Gables in the middle of a roof.

Multiple roof elements that merge or intersect.

Roof areas with different roof pitch - in degrees, slope or %

Change roof panels individually.

Representation of tiles on the 3D model.

Plan for fall anchors and include it in the quotaion.

Slate roof model with different eave heights all round.

Digitise a satellite image.

3D model ready to prepare quotation.

Isometric 3D view of multi-level roof model.

Commercial or residential, all roof shapes may be modelled.

Cut-out tools may be used to modify perimeter shapes.

Roof geometry isn't always what it seems.

Allow an architect to go for it, and they will....

One mouse click and you're done.

What-ever the architect designs, you can model.

Automatically dimension the whole roof, in 3D and know it is correct - in metric or imperial units.

Check all the line types in 3D - know what you're getting.

Split level or multi-level in just 2 steps.

Add most roof features in a single mouse-click.

One click and extract all the roof geometry numbers.

Nested panels allow reduced waste and automated cuts.

Measure roof pitch from Google Streetview.


If you have modelled some really cool roof shapes and would like us to include them here, email them to the support team - enquiries@applicad.com.au
