I wish the Roof Pivot direction could be obtained and used in GDL. I currently have a LABEL that reads the roof slope and displays and pitch arrow, but there is no parameter to tell it to rotate to be perpendicular the pivot line.

I don't expect many votes here, but would be handy. (I'd actually give the object away if GS could update the GDL spec)

You're right, that is an annoying limitation. I wrote a label to pick up slope, but it still has to be rotated to face the right way.

I have one that is a roof accessory that automatically aligns with the slope. I got it here on architalk several years ago.

Right technology; not so good looking part. I am working to upgrade the graphics and add some features... I'll try and post back here.

Thanks Erika!

Bringing this old thread back , I have made a label that changes between plan view and elevation view - gives roof pitch in degrees & slope etc.

Uses Arrow in plan to mark direction of slope and no arrow in elevation view

I made a "flip" parameter in Elevation because I cannot find a way to sense
the direction of the roof has anyone ever discovered a way ?
label attatched.

Thanks Randy!

I hadn't gone looking for roof anatomy after discovering that roof element edges were given proper names and that these names were definable.

http://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/guides/archicad-18-int-reference-guide/views-of-the-virtual-building/archicad-model-views-2/interactive-schedule/element-listing-parameters-in-the-interactive-schedule/roofshell-edge-listing-parameters/

proper roof nomenclature is essential for use with tools like Cadimage coverings.

Thanks Aaron - I checked out all of the shellbase_ commands
but none of them give direction or angle so cannot figure how they can help.

there is a switch that allows it to display degrees instead of slope , did you have another way that you want it displayed ? Not sure what you do in your country.
