3D Add

I have been creating my roof by extruding polylines, it just seems easier for me for the time being. My question is, I have sliced some of these extrusions and then try to do a 3D Add but there is still a visible line between the two parts. There are connected, but there is still a visible line. I was having the same issue with roof slabs actually, which I assume is probably the same kind of entity. Anybody have a solution for this?

I dont think it is possible to make the lines not show.
But you can make the "baseroof" at the biggest size and then subtract from it instead, or if you have roofslab you can use the edit tool to add nodes and then adjust it at your like.

Thank you for the reply. I'll mess with the roof tool some more. With the addition of a few tools, I could fly through putting a roof on a house. The other day I built some 3d parts all with simple extrude and 3d add, everything worked as I would expect. I wish it were as easy to build a roof. I'm also adapting the way I design, so my 3d knowledge is still a work in progress. I'm just trying to find the best process for myself with the tools that currently exist. I'm getting there.

Since these are added extrusions, I would try using the facet editing tool, selecting the small facet and pressing delete.

I just updated my signature with all the important info. I'm working through some of the suggestions, so far the node editing is working pretty well. I will continue and post back with the results.

For whatever reason, converting the roof to a roof slab, 3d slice, then 3d add worked perfectly today. Not sure why it's working now but I had trouble with it in the past. I was converting my sheet to pdf to post the results and noticed that the 3d elevations look terrible when printing to pdf with TurboPDF. I'm sure it has nothing to do with TurboPDF, but not sure whats going on in the viewports. Everything looks good up until the pdf is printed. I'm using redsdk hidden line. In the attached pdf, the stone on the front columns was done in paperspace and looks as it should, views are pixelated though. The Elevations 2.jpg file is a screenshot of the desktop and the 3D Elevations.pdf is how that view actually printed. 3D Elevation.jpg is just the result of the roof after trying the suggestions here today.
