Corner boards on auto dormer not sticking

Recommended Posts

Using X9. I am having a terrible time with corner boards not staying on my auto dormers. I don't usually use them (do them manually because of these problems) but on two of the jobs I have currently going I placed them on the roof to give the clients different exterior looks. I then went back on both jobs and added corner boards. They stay - for a while. But for no reason, on both jobs, I go back to an overview to see how things look and they are gone. It happens when I am working on totally different areas; I didn't edit or move them. Anyone else see this?

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      This bathroom is upstairs, tucked into a dormer. You can see the adjacent roofs in the mirror reflections.
      Reflections like these can be controlled in the Material Properties, and displayed using camera specifications. PBR views like this one do a good job representing reflections in mirrors, and also reflections on shiny surfaces like counters, porcelain, and even metal. Other benefits of this rendering technique are high quality shadows and lighting, all combined with real-time rendering. This means you can navigation your scenes in front of a client or home owner and it will look as good from each angle.

      You'll notice that floor plan Option 3 and Option 4 for the Paradise Rises project are quite similar. Both are a story and a half with matching structural walls and feature livable attic space. The attic in Option 3 has been left mostly unfinished. This creates an opportunity for a home owner in Paradise, CA, to rebuild a livable space for themselves with cost savings by not immediately finishing the upstairs. Once they are prepared to complete the project, residents to can choose to wrap it up on their own accord.
      Review the full design set to see how the attic spaces differ between architectural styles due to the location and placement of dormers.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I am a newbie and using Architectural 2019.  I placed a railing on the outside edge of my front porch and would like to delete it.  But, every time I try to delete it, the roof goes down to the ground on the porch area.  Can anyone help please?
       
      Thanks, Darlene
