How to fix walls NOT going to vaulted ceiling when they should?

Recommended Posts

I have a simple room on a second floor which has gabled walls on both opposite ends.  See attached camera view from inside as well as the section view.  The problem I have is what you see in the camera view. The gabled wall WON'T go up to the ceiling or roof in the camera view.  You will also see there is an internal wall on the left in the image that also has this same problem.  I've watched the videos, and tried to play with room settings, but nothing seems to work - although it all looks fine from an OUTSIDE view (ie the gables do fully extend to the roof apex). I have the same problem with the chimney.  How do I get that to project BEYOND the roof?  It must be something quite simple - but I'm just going round in circles chasing my tail now.  Any suggestions?

I see that one can FAKE it by manually pulling up each wall, but I'm sure the program should be able  do this all automatically?

I get this on occasion. Imalso have the opposite problem on some interior walls. I'm sure there's an easier way but try deleting the roof and then add a new roof. Make sure rebuild attic walls is on in defaults under walls, general walls

My guess is that you're using a Floor Camera, which will not display the attic walls. Try using a Full Camera instead. Scott knows this - he helped me out with this exact issue a few years back.

that's a good guess,  I never use the floor camera,  I am not sure why someone would use the floor camera.

That was it! 

 

Changed to a FULL CAMERA, and the problem was gone!

I'll second that. What a debt of gratitude this country owes its veterans! Thank you David, and all veterans, for your sacrificial service.
