That is a good suggestion, however the roof form is made from various segments and each segment is applying its own direction. I am trying to achieve a uniformity accross the roof. Perhaps I need to seperate each individual piece as their own object and own material to gain more control. Another alternative is converting the 3ds file to dxf (3D) and importing it as an object then, this I will try and get back to you.

The DXF file will not carry over the texture mapping...
3ds is your best bet. You might display a picture of the original 3ds file, since the first image you showed seemed to have a full mapping in place.
