Problem Getting Auto Dormer to Place

Recommended Posts

I cannot seem to make an auto dormer place on the roof that the arrow is pointing to.

 

The other one took time but finally placed.

 

Have tried everything I can think of.

 

Using Auto Floating Dormer Tool, Shed Roof Style

 

Help Wanted !

 

Thanks,

JJ,  Not sure I have ever even used an auto dormer before or at least that I can remember but got this first try just with copy and paste. Dumb luck I am sure.   Is this what you are looking for?

Jere,

 

The Dormer needs to fit within the roof plane or it won't place.

 

Go to the Default Settings> Dormer and lower the wall height to 48" and it will place.

That was it, wall could not be higher than roof rise I think.

 

Looks like wall height adjustment is key to placing AND resizing these stubborn little guys

 

Thanks !

Did you do anything special, but yes that's what I needed?

No nothing special just select CTRL + C and point then CTRL + V and click. Literally as Scott would say 2.3978 seconds.

If it does not work for you plan is available.
