frieze trim automatically rebuilding

Recommended Posts

I don't want this frieze trim on the house wall.  Anyone know how to keep this frieze molding from automatically rebuilding?  I keep deleting manually it but it keeps showing up.  I've tried deleting it, unchecking the "frieze molding on selected edge", I have auto rebuild roofs off in the roof dialog setup, auto rebuild roofs is off in defaults.  What am I missing?

 The settings that control "Freeze Trim" can be found in the Build Roof Dialog. If you do not want any Freeze trims then do not set any to be built in the Build Roof Dialog. Such trims are also on their own layer and can be turned on or of visually in Display Options.

This software is predicated upon settings, dialog boxes and input boxes. Usually it is just taking the time to look and find where such settings are and what they do. It is time well spent.

Once you select that trim, convert it to a basic molding pline rather than a frieze (roof trim) and select the box for no trim on this line. Then select the roof plane and remove the frieze for that roof plane so that it won't keep generating.

Thanks for your response David.  I am just wanting to get rid of the one piece of trim on the house wall and keep the other pieces of frieze trim.

Thanks for your response Joey, where do I find the command to convert the roof trim molding to a basic pline?

Don't think this is an option.

 

Give this a try.

 

Unlock the Roof Trim layer. Select and copy the molding p-lines you want to keep. Delete the frieze from this roof plane.

 

Paste Hold Position to put the molding p-lines back.

You re right...thinking of something else. 

 

Select the trim piece and this tool pops up, use it to delete the offending piece of trim.

A little bit of a bother, but this seamed to work and keep it from rebuilding.  Thank you

Tried this and it continued to rebuild itself, even if I open another roof plane on the house, change nothing and click ok to close the roof window.  Thank you for you recommendation

      I would like assistance trouble shooting a couple spots on my roof.  
      1. South west corner of dining room the frieze is not connecting.
      2. South (attic?) wall of front porch not generating correctly. 
      3. South parapet wall of RV garage not displaying full soffit/molding.  
      Plan is in the zip file. I would greatly appreciate any input. Thank you.

      Anyone have a solution for this condition?  Creating custom 3D Moldings (like for a frieze board) - - the transition from a gable (angled) end to an eave ('flat') piece.. If you use two moldings the gable overhangs too far (runs past the eave).  If you have one molding and turn the corner/change the angle, the profiles don't match up. 
       
      I know you can do a solid to make it work, but that is a bit of a pain and makes the plan file bigger fast.
       
      Thanks.

      Does anyone else notice CA automatically adds room dividers sometimes? I'm assuming it's the way I build my walls and get them in place, but I don't know why I'm not able to delete them.

      Here's a little bad boy condition that I had to fix, so I taped it.  
       
      This touches on the following topics:
       
      messy outside wall connection at dormer cheeks.  In this case it's related to attic walls and the roof eave being higher than the ceiling. misbehaving frieze at roofs with jogs. getting corner boards and rafter tails to look the way you want at dormer outside corners. Even though this is not technically a "dormer", it's definitely dormer-ish.  So techniques from here can be applied directly to dormers.
       
      it's the three videos titled "Roof Schmutz" in the Dormer library folder - http://www.screencast.com/t/FotMcxvnpAI

      I'm working on a file that I received from a builder and I can not figure why the frieze texture pattern is displayed differently from eaves to gables.  This usually doesn't happen on my default files.  I'm wondering if maybe there is a setting that I'm not aware of that is causing this that he has set in this file.
       
      Anyone know why this is happening like this?
