Pitching Roof Maya 2013

As I'm a complete noob at Maya, I need some help. How do you make a pitch roof? I have the building here, but I simply need to pull the center up... Thoughts?

Draw an edge down the top, and translate it up?

Architecture in Maya is rather absurd. But this is a pretty basic modeling aspect.

The tool you are looking for is "insert edge loop tool" under the "edit mesh" menu (you must be in "polygons" subset - the drop down thingy at the left).

But look through some Maya modeling tutorials. Knowing the basic tools of cutting, merging and extruding will be essential

Do you mean using Maya for architecture is absurd, or just that some of the tools are absurd?

I mean that Maya has no tools for architectural design. You could script all the tools you'd need, of course, but that would take quite some time. Or you could just use Rhino and/or Revit, or other applications that already have these tools and have been developed for some time.

Of course Maya's great for rendering; I export from Rhino to Maya for my arch/viz renderings.
