The Dimetris pitched roof calculator helps to calculate the actual pitched roof geometry quickly and easily. The program will help you to easily find out the actual area of the pitched roof or the length of its individual elements (joints, purlins, ridges, etc.) of the building you are designing or that exists.
If the calculation is performed on the roof of a new building, then a PDF roof plan as well as one or more facades of the building must be loaded into the Dimetris application. After uploading the drawings, the scale of the drawings shall be determined by specifying at least one known dimension of the roof or facade. After this step, the Dimetris application will set the base scale for all the loaded drawings, so you can forget about applying it. After scaling, a “bypass” of the roof contour is performed with the corresponding function. The outline of each individual roof slope must be drawn. After these steps, you need to enter the height of the roof elements. The heights of the roof elements are calculated from the information in the facade drawings. Once you have completed all these steps, you can check that the Dimetris has correctly performed the geometry simulation by simply pressing the 3D rendering button.
