Roof Lost Fascia

Recommended Posts

Doing an as built for a contractor I deal with and well I'm a cabinet guy-don't really do roofs.

On the front of this the fascia goes away and then those little I don't know what you call em get added to the sides. I realize I could add a psolid for the fascia but guessing that there is some sort of pilot error going on and would like to know the proper way to correct it. And then the I don't know things :)

In the roof plane dbx, go to options, boxed eave.  Uncheck the one that says "default to overhang".  Enter the actual eave edge distance there.  The fascia can be fixed by pulling the clipped roof plane out a little and it will force a fascia to rebuild.  This was a quick response and I admit I did not load the plan.  I thought this might help though.

Try adding a small return as shown. The fascia will not join cleanly, but at least it's there.

Mark,

Grab the Baselines for the 2 truncated front hips and move them just a little towards the house - I just used 1 click of the left arrow button.

That seemed to fix all the problems.

Mark,

 

That doesn't really fix the problem though.

That will make things look OK, but when you use the join roof planes tool, the roofs revert back to how they were.

You play around more and find out exactly what is wrong.

Or you could just do the above and move on.

I've been having the problem of the disappearing fascia as well, on one roof plane.

 

I can make the fascia reappear by moving one edge of the problem roof plane slightly. But then the fascia will later disappear again - even though I haven't touched that roof plane or anything around it.

 

If I move the edge of the roof plane back a bit, save, exit, reopen, and then move the roof plane again (to the previous position), the fascia will reappear. I think it is must be a "bug".

FWIW I sent my plan with the disappearing fascia in to Chief tech support. They can't offer an explanation or fix for the issue, and have turned it to over to the development team. For now I've just manually drawn the fascia/soffit to mostly cover the offending area up when the fascia decides to disappear.

Took little time to digonose why fascias would disappear. And from past experience I had a similar scenarios that was caused by unseen roof edge connections and complications related to breaks around edges that result from manual roofing in case. So I have created a video on how I often times make sure, if that diasapeareance of fascia is caused by the above mentioned problems. Then I thought to share a video while messing on the roofs. And it worked fine, I closed and reopened the plan to see if it is back, but it doesn't disappear even when I using the roof join tool, drag, rejoin etc. So I think you may find helpful watching this crappy video I created while trying to diagonose and fix the problem.

      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)?

      I have all these little 'X's can someone please tell me how to get rid of them?  I've been really playing around with the roof and i THINK they are from that but at the same time i have a couple random ones outside where the roof is -- i cannot get them to go away. Help!
       
      thanks in advance

      Hello, We are having a hard time getting  the design program to do the roof right. We have tried with Sketchup and it got the closest. It's hard to describe I have attached a few pics with a decent idea of what we are trying to do.
       
      The Garage is a shed roof as well as the breeze way, but they are at different angles. The house is a butterfly style with the V running at a angle. WE do not care what the pitch ends up being on any of the roofs.
       
      Anyone know how to do this. I have been trying for hours and the program goes crazy every time. Esp with the all 3 roofs at different angles with each other. I have attached a copy of the plan we made and some pics from sketchup because that program got the closest to what we are trying to do.
       
      Thanks

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?

      Hi all. I'm fairly new to the software and have only been using it since October. I have a client who wants a wood framed chimney extruding from the middle of the roof up from the gas fireplace. I've tried a bunch of different options to make this work but can't figure it out. Can someone please tell me how to draw walls on top of the roof?
       
      Thank you!
