Tutorials - Examples of complex roof shapes possible with RoofScape

AppliCad knows that there is no roof shape that cannot be modelled using RoofScape. Some are definitely more difficult than others and practice with the tools we provide will give you the skills to do jobs like these.

Most roof features such as dormers, gables, cutouts, highlights, porches or verandahs, multi-hips and bay windows are usually added with a single mouse click. Remember that many complex roof shapes are a combination of simple roof shapes.

Now you must learn how you can create these great roof shapes for yourself. Based on our process, if you can't model it, you can't estimate it. So invest a little time in understanding how to use the fantastic tools we have developed for you and you will be repaid many times over.

Start with setting up your material and labour rates. If you're not bothered with these just now, at least check the units you're using then go straight to How To Model.

Software Services

For our roofing customers, AppliCad has the most advanced software at a level that suits your business.

A business doesn't make money costing, quoting, designing, documenting, drawing, scheduling, organising and managing. These things are important, however, you only make money installing the roof. AppliCad will significantly reduce the time spent on non-income-earning administration, and significantly speed up the actual income earning task of suppling and installing roofing.
