Roof/ceiling planes cutting into dormer cheek walls

Recommended Posts

Ok, the next thing odd happening with this model:

 

The cheek walls on the dormers are being cut at the roof plane locations.  I suspect it's a problem with the two roof planes coming together at the gambrel pitch transition points, and being compounded by two ceiling planes below the roof planes created to 1) provide a 12" space for insulation and air gap between the roof decking and insulation; 2) provide gussets at the roof pitch transition where the support studs have been removed to open up the rooms.

      Hello,
       
      I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created?
       
      I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated.
       
      Thank you,

      Hi, I am trying to continue the exterior wall up to the dormer. When I exploded the auto dormer and extended the roofline it cuts off the gutter and eave boxes. I don't know if there is a better method for this or an easy fix, that's why I'm here. Thanks in advance.

      When I multiple select roof planes, I am given the option to change their baseline height or their pitch, and nothing else. So I have to go into each roof plane and set it's fascia height individually - which stinks, partly because of CA's dialogue-box heavy interface. If I have to open up a dang dialog box, can't I at least have the option to override all and set the fascia and pitch or ridge and pitch, etc. for all the roof planes selected?
       
      This is a larger part of the underlying issue, which is that CA needs to invest in a GUI redesign because this one is so clunky and cumbersome. Please Chief, please. Please.

      I have asked this question on Facebook’s Chief Architect page and no one can figure out or help with what I am seeing. I can’t adjust the knee wall height unless I click and drag each piece of lumber individually. I did this once and then rebuilt framing for another wall and it rebuilt this to what you see in the image. I also had all the ceilings correct and then found them separated from the floor trusses today and the floor/ceiling heights are off. I tried the Edit>Reset to Defaults and that didn’t adjust them. I am not sure what is going on but I am definitely not intentionally doing this. I found it like the images below as I am placing everything into the layout pages and several areas are messed up. Any ideas?

      My client decided that instead of a full 2 story he would like to do a 1 1/2. Is there any way  I can drop the roof without having to delete all roof planes and building again? I have multiple manual roof planes and do not want to lose those.
