BuildR 2 – Gable Designs

Gable designs can be applied to a specific facade of a volume. They will render the facade above the parapet wall with the user design. A gable design is made up of five types of shape; Horizontal, Vertical, Diagonal, Concave and Convex. With these shapes it’s possible to create most designs we see from a simple “Crow Stepped” through to more elaborate Dutch variants. BuildR Gable designs are saved into the Assets/BuildR2/Gables folder. To create a new one go to the menu bar and click on Tools > BuildR > Create New Gable Design
