  1. Hi Everyone. I would like to avoid doing the (create 2D cross section/draw CAD line/create polyline solid/convert to molded polyline), just so I can place a simple rectangular prism above a window ...specifically...Window Specification/Treatments (exterior millwork above casing) CA-001 shows up when I browse the library. This would work but it is not available as a Window Specification/Treatments library options. The closest I can find is Architectural/Millwork/Mantels,Lintals, & Sills/Striaght/Angled Header. It has six sides but two of them are angled. I also am trying to avoid adding a custom rectangular prism as I am doubtful it will show up under the treatments menu. Does anyone know of a window treatment library option under Windows Specification/Treatments/exterior millwork above casing) that is a rectangular prism? Thanks!

    Cannot get any kind of dormer on roof

    I'd like to know how to fudge two dormers on the roof over the front porch. I'd like them moveable no matter what is under the roof. One method complains there's no wall so cannot create. Other method says cannot create because of a wall in the way. Can someone easily add two dormers using some kind of magic? Thanks! front roof done.plan

    Yes, I know, I read it. But I refer to all dormer videos.

    How I did it. I made one manually. Tried to copy it but couldn't tell what I was selecting and could never copy it all together. So I saved file as junk and deleted everything that was not dormer. I then exported it as 3ds and imported it to my house file and plopped them on.

    Videos only show when everything goes right. What some people need to see is video where everything goes wrong and they show how they fix it. IHO

    I have never had it work after error msg by moving it. That was the reason for question.

    So if it throws error message you can move it and it may work? Or do you have to delete it and replace?

    The problem must be I need an 8/12 pitch but it will only work on my 8/12 roof plane with less than 8/12 dormer roof plane pitches. Manual is the only way. Thx all!

    But i need an 8/12 pitch. Did you have to create or delete any walls to get this to work with a 5/12 pitch?

    Thanks Kbird, I have seen all of those. What I have never seen is a video where someone actually shows a dormer not being able to be built for one of two reason. 1. There is a wall in the way. 2. There is no wall. I need to see a video whereby someone says "Ok, this isn't working so I am going to go to the dormer settings and make some adjustments so it will work." Could the problem be that I don't have a second floor? I have successfully done it manually but I want to understand the reason that CA gurus easily plop dormers on roofs and never get an error message. It seems to have to do mainly with the absence or presence of a wall under the roof.

    $10 to whoever adds two dormers.

    CA should delete a dormer if it throw an error message.

    Tried your method. Chief said dormer too close to another dormer...but there were no other dormers. I checked in all layers. No other dormers. I will have to try manual.

    I tried modifying the dormer defaults but didn't see a height or width entry box.

    So, I'm attempting to get all these roof planes to meet. If an angle is off when I check 'selected line', I change the angle, then another angle changes! Is there a way to change an angle and tell CA that they have no permission to change any other angle? Ashley close.plan
