Roof Tile for Cone Roof

Once I published "Adaptive Roof Tiles", and still it's the most popular post in my blog.
I got several requests and questions about the families. This is one of them.

Mission: How to make roof tiles on cone roof?

Like this?

The families which I published are not suitable on a cone roof. The tiles have to be transformed depends on their location.
the higher the narrower

the lower the wider

And two different shaped tiles are necessary; cap tile and pan tile.

stack concept

After making two tiles, place these at rectangle pattern.

it seems weird but... 

it will be like this...

To make it an adaptive family, I created a 2-point adaptive cone family.

Three circles are used to make two layered faces.

And created UV grid on the surface

Some formulas are used to make number of grid of the bottom surface two times more than one of upper surface.

Finally, just applied the pattern which I created above.


And here is how it works.

You can download the families above here..

Enjoy. ;-)
