For some reason I cannot get an attic wall to generate above an invisible wall in the attached plan. I did a test using an OOB Chief Template plan...and the attic walls work as advertised. Therefore...it seems I've messed with a setting somewhere in my template plan.
Can someone look at the attached test plan and see if you can discern what I've done...thanks in advance.
ATTIC WALL MISSING.plan
I opened a plan in X9 this morning that I completed in X8 back in January. To my suprise, the attic walls for the dormers are sticking above the roof and the windows in that area are messed up. I have noticed this happening before with older plans that we use to modify. I decided to take some time this morning and look through the forums and try to determine what is going on between X8 & X9. We have so many more issues with X9 and attic walls and auto dormers. Something apparently changed...
See photos below of what is appearing when I open the file in X9. I can open in X8 and it appears correct.
I assume some simple setting that I need to fix when opening these older plans. I appreciate the help so I can quit scratching my head and placing blame somewhere else
I have a general question regarding roof trusses and attic walls.
If I choose to raise the roof plane then an attic wall is created. Automatically this wall is a copy of the wall below it...so, typically it will have drywall on it...which is not needed in the attic. So...I create a new "attic wall" type...without the drywall. However, if I will be using roof trusses with an "energy heel"...what happens to this "attic wall"?
As you can see from the framing perspective view...the attic wall does not show....except at the gable ends. (I have attic walls turned on). Does the use of "roof trusses" override the attic wall? I'm wondering if the materials for the attic wall are still being calculated. Also...the attic wall does appear in the cross section view.
Needless to say...it's a bit confusing.
What is the best way to resolve the issue of lower shed or bay roofs, covering projections in gable walls, cutting the automatically generated gable attic wall? This, I am sure, has been asked before, but I cannot readily find such a thread. Thanks for your help
I am stumped on an issue with dormer walls. I have a design that uses a cape cod roof bearing on the 1st floor walls. The top floor of this design has two dormers. These dormers have 1 exterior wall on the top side, and 1 interior wall on the lower side. I cannot figure out how to get the lower side walls to show with siding above the roof and drywall below the ceiling inside on the top floor.
Thank you in advance. People are so helpful on these forums!
