Roof baseline - Tips please

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I'm attempting to improve my knowledge of how to manipulate roof objects. I've read everything I can find on the baseline and poly line tool but I am having a hard time understanding what these things can be used for. Anyone care to enlighten me?

 

A secondary question.. is it possible to update roof objects for new room heights? For example if I have an existing roof and then change the plate height in the room dbx from 9' to 8' the ceiling jumps down but the roof stays where its at and attic walls are created. The only way I've found to fix this is to delete the roof and add a new roof. Would be nice If there is a way to just update the roof.

 

Thanks!

Interesting, so if the lock baseline is not checked will the roof move with the room height in the room dbx? I understand that you can move it manually a couple different ways but just wondering if it can be tied to the room

No roof stays put if you lower room, raise it in the roof dbx, uncheck baseline and lock roof pitch and change to what you desire.

You can turn on Auto Rebuild Roofs and the roofs will auto build and auto update whenever you change the model.
