I'm getting the same anomaly, I guess it is a bug. The align with roof pitch setting has no effect.

This story never finishes.

For history, the culprit is poly2_b{2} command, which was broken in 16.
The failure of the roof accessory in 2D was a consequence of this bug.
The bug was noticed in July 2012, and fixed with hotfix 4 (3827), one year later.

In AC 16 (3827), poly2_b{2} command is repaired
Opening Roof Surfacer 16 (3827), you will see at line 46 (2D Script).

In AC 17, poly2_b{2} command is repaired… and Roof Surfacer 17 is broken again.
The previous line of code is missing.

As a temporary workaround, add this line at the begining of the 2D Script

Do a copy not to modify the original library. Wait for the next Library Hotfix.
Keep cool.

It's not just the roof surfacer object that is wonky.
Even just the materials with vectorial hatching on a multi-plane roof is wrong.
Single roof planes are fine.

Does this disclaimer mean it won't be fixed?
