Specifications

Gabled

It is an dormer type that has a slope in two directions.

Shed

It is an dormer type with a single direction.

Hipped

It is an dormer type that has three directions.

Round

It is an dormer type with a round shape.

Spline

It is an dormer type with a spline shape.

Dormer ID

Dormer is the name of the object that will appear in the plan and quantity.

Color

It is the color of the eyelet object in the plan and in the 3D model if a texture is not assigned. You can click the color box and choose the color you want from the color palette.

Inner line color

It is the color of the inner line of the eyelet object in the plan. You can click the color box and choose the color you want from the color palette.

Roof line type

It is the line type of the outer contour line of the dormer object in the plan. You can select the desired line type from the list by clicking the line type box.

Inner line type

It is the line type of the inner line of the dormer object. You can select the desired line type from the list by clicking the line type box.

Width

It is the width of the dormer object. Width refers to the length of the dormer surface remaining parallel to the roof surface being worked on.

Depth

It is the depth of the dormer object. Depth refers to the length of the dormer surface perpendicular to the roof surface being studied.

Roof height

It is the height of the roof belonging to the dormer object.

Side wall height

It is the height of the lateral walls of the dormer object.

Side wall thickness

It is the thickness of the side walls of the dormer object.

Roof thickness

It is the thickness of the roof belonging to the dormer object.

Front wall thickness

It is the thickness of the front and back walls of the dormer object.

Create side walls

If checked, a wall is created around the dormer object and a roof over the walls. If not checked, only the dormer roof is created.

Roof left side offset

It is the left eave width of the roof belonging to the dormer.

Roof right side offset

It is the right eave width of the roof belonging to the dormer.

Roof front offset

It is the width of the front eaves of the roof belonging to the dormer.

Roof back offset

It is the rear eaves width of the roof belonging to the dormer.

Hipped surface offset

When hipped surface dormer types are selected, it is the width of the 3rd surface of that type.

Roof slope angle

When single surface dormer type is selected, it is the angle value that determines the slope of the surface of that type.

Get roof peak distance from width

If the option is checked, the top of the dormer roof is created in the middle of the dormer object. If the option is not checked, the position of the vertex is determined by taking into account the value entered in the lower line of the dialog.

Roof peak distance

If the get roof peak distance from width is not marked, this row becomes active. The location of the apex of the dormer roof is determined according to the value entered in this row.

World length

Texture length is entered. For example; If 1 is entered, the selected material texture is taken as 1 meter and covered on the relevant walls. If the texture is considered to be in the form of a square, the object surfaces are covered by lining up 1x1 textures side by side. It can be determined separately for each surface.

Angle

The texture angle is entered.

U offset

The offset value of the texture in the x-plane is entered.

V offset

The offset value in the y-plane of the texture is entered

U mirror

It takes the symmetry of the texture with respect to the y plane.

V mirror

It takes the symmetry of the texture with respect to the x plane.

Use same material

If marked, the same material is used on all surfaces of the dormer. If not marked, materials defined for each surface are used.
