Garage flat roof with a 1:40 fall. Dingle parapet


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Im fairly new to chief but thought id get it to design a garage.

Ive built a basic shell which was nice and straight forward.

I now need to create a flat roof with a fall of 1:40 with a single parapet at the front.

Ive tried following the build a flat roof and build a parapet roof guide, however could really do with some help to do it.

I seem to end up with a hipped roof.

Cheers guys for any help.

Just trying to get planning in the uk and want to not involve an architect

Just make a roof plane, open the dbx and set the pitch to what you want.  You can then take a section view and adjust the roof plane until is looks in the section view like what you want.  Parapet can be a wall on a separate floor or a polyline solid or even a wall below with the roof pulled back to allow it to pass through.  It might take some manual wall adjusting.

If you will follow this exactly you will be able to create a flat roof with parapet.  You can't set the slope on it (I don't think) but you can specify it the way you want it with notes. I did the practice plan attached just following this information: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00295/creating-a-flat-parapet-roof.html
