I have building footprints with max height attached. I need to know the height of roofHip so I can store it as a variable and subtract it from the max height to run the extrude function. I need to know either the height of the roof model or how to recursively reduce the extrusion to match the max height attribute.

I have looked at scope and geometry functions and neither are helping to solve the problem.This problem is close to matching buildings with the same top of roof height that is done by volumes.

In short: How does one figure out the height of the building's roof?

Thanks for the help,

If I understand your problem correctly, you need to know the roof angle. The distance which you would want to subtract from your hipHeight to get your facadeHeight would be something like cos(roofAngle) * buildingWidth / 2.
