ARCHICAD's Speed Modeling tip this week is focusing on a shell shaped roof. I like you to pay special attention to the highlighted shell in the top image.
You can see the shell has a slant at the bottom left hand corner with a certain width. As you follow along the wooden shell you can see the shell width is getting smaller and matches the same shell width of the outer shell on the right hand side. At the same time the slant is decreasing to zero.
Go and check it out how this is done. Enjoy Carsten
