How to maintain roof framing after deleting roof plane?

Hey all,

Anyone found a way to do this?  I tried copying and renaming, but when the roof plan is deleted, the framing gets deleted?  

 

I thought it would be a faster way to make an arbor, but not..

 

Curious if it can be done?

 

Thank you,

Barry

I often do this.

There are a couple of ways I do it.

1. Ensure you un-tick all the auto roof framing check boxes so they become manual framing members.

OR

2. Make a glass roof plane that will be invisible in 3d views.

Ahhh...

Yes!  I think Eric may have the best approach.  I was doing it in the wrong order:  The correct method is: Create roof plane, frame roof plane, copy framing, delete, roof plane, then paste framing back.  

 

I was pasting then deleting roof plane..even when renamed to a different layer the framing deletes when you delete the original roof plan after pasting.   

 

Copy Framing--Delete roof plane--paste framing...simple..Thank you all.
