Keepouts can be accessed in the Keepouts section of the Segment outline that you are working on.
There are currently 5 different types of keepouts:
- Poly Keepouts
- Line Keepouts
- Circle Keepouts
- Fire Keepouts
- Parapet Keepouts
Tracing out a keepout is a easy as selecting it from the menu on the left hand hand side of the Scanifly 3D window and then drawing the keepout on the roof. For Fire and Parapet keepouts you do not need to draw the outline on the roof, you just need to fill in the text boxes that appear in the Scanifly 3D window to the desired setback / parapet height for those specific keepout types.
You can also give each keepout a height, Setback and Radius to further customize the keepout after drawing it on the roof segment outline of your choice.
Keepouts generated using the automatic method will be parallel to the ridge and/or eave. Please check your tilt and azimuth before generating your keepouts.
In order to use the Automatic keepout functionality, you must select the Automatic option in the keepouts section of the segment outline that you are working on. Once you have selected the Automatic option, you will be given the option to set a Plane offset. You want to adjust the plane offset so that ONLY roof obstructions are showing through the blue layer on the roof, and that there are no portions of the roof sticking through.
You can use the direction arrows on your keyboard or the arrows in the Plane offset section of the Scanifly 3D window in order to adjust the plane offset until it is at the correct height for your roof outline and obstructions.
After adjusting the plane offset to the desired height, hit Generate to automatically generate keepouts.
After the keepouts have been generated, you can accept them or disgrard them and start over. If you would like to accept the keepouts, hit Accept All, otherwise hit Clear All.
If you decide that you would like to delete all of your keepouts after accepting them, you have the option to Delete All keepouts in the keepouts menu as well.
