I love Datacad, been on it since ver 4. Getting into more detailed 3d design now. Commercial roofs are pretty easy. The hard thing that I am having is to build a 3d roof that has multiple types of materials like exposed rafters, asphalt shingles, maybe dormers etc. Would like to know if there are any add ons to the tool box which get into more modeled components. I have a older item in my tool box which is called roofit 2. Any better add on's out there. I could use the 3d tilt up method but looking for something faster.

You could try searching for the RFTools macro which did complex domestic/residential roofing very well. I was created by People Software. My version (which no longer works fully on the 64-bit pc's) is RoofBuilder Tools 3.1 (1990-1995). Another one to search for is Build Roof by Power Space (Australia)/Advanced Relational Technology Pty Ltd. My version is 2.31 (1994-97) so I'm not sure if there are more recent versions.
