Creating Corner Skylights in a Dormer Roof

Recommended Posts

Hey all... I have been challenged with drafting this corner detail window with skylights.

I already spoke with SSA and have identified how to do the base corner windows.

 

I am stuck on the corner skylights in the roofline. I have already attempted using Skylights... and there ended up being a large fascia piece that ran through the ridge line and into the center of the skylights... and there was no way for it to be edited.

Also the skylights were in the same plain as the roof shingle material and not in line with the bottom of the cut back fascia (wrong elevation).

 

I tried using ceiling plain.. but there was no frame and it also switched all my interior ceiling material to glass (in the entire room)... so that was out. 

 

Which leads me to here. I am presenting this to ya'll... let me know if you have done this installation before and how best to draft it accurately. 

 

Thank you in advance!

This is the best I could come up with, I don't know if it will help you.

 

After dropping the skylight, you can change the shape of the polyline. I then dragged the roof back.

The skylight is generating a ceiling line, I do not know how you could delete that.

You could try using roof planes: drop the baseline, remove the finish, make the structure a single material (glass), and modify the structure tab to get what you want:

Is going back in time and altering history for the sake of (artistic) humanity an option?

Thank you Jarr3tt88 : The approach you sent gave me that same piece of fascia that was un-editable. 

(I can get rid of the interior ceiling plain by making the space its' own room (with invisible room dividers) and then unchecking 'ceiling over this room' in the structure box. 

 

Thank you for the approach. Unfortunately it doesn't solve my situation completely.

And... Gawdzira... we are going back in... to remodle. This is going away ;-) 

So feel free to celebrate a win for artistic humanity. 

I just needed to draft it accurately for the 'existing conditions' part of my plan set.
