Intersecting Roof Planes (Issue)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've seem to run into an issue with a current project.  I have a house with one gable roof that shares a wall with the garage, which has a second gable roof.  At one point on these roof planes, they intersect, and I lose my fascia on each plane, and can see inside the roofs themselves. I feel like there is some simple solution to this, but can't seem to figure it out. 

 

(Yes, this was previously posted, but I mistakenly posted via boss's account, which does no good, considering I run the program, not him! XD)

 

Thanks!

 

Shelby

Auto-Build gives me an extensive roof system, which I don't really need/want. So, I just drew these two manual systems, but for whatever reason, where those two planes touch, it erases my fascia on each one.  I'm somewhat (>2 years) new to chief, but thought maybe it was something simple that I was over looking, or (better chance) didn't know about.

The roof edges need to completely separate, you may need to add "Line Breaks" to separate them properly, so they do not interfere with the fascia as is currently the case. Zoom in and really carefully see how those two roof plane lines are crossing each other and then using line breaks, make sure they cleanly cross each other.

 

For a more detailed explaination, you will need to share a copy of your plan.

Well shoot. Clearly its me. I've never had much luck with the auto build feature, but I don't really use it ever, and I highly doubt I'm doing it right

It's worth learning. Many times you will need to modify what Chief builds, but an auto built roof gets you started.

 

For a simple house like yours, I spent 15 seconds setting a few parameters.

I have a somewhat similar issue with my roof.  (Not sure if it has to be in a new  conversation)

I have this simple garage addition with a dutch and full gable up front.  I cant get the line to disappear in the fascia where it meets the upper roof (its doesn't show in regular view but I use vector views for the elevation views in my layout).  Any advise?

 

Thanks in advance

Generally best to start a new thread as your issue is completely different.

 

Posting your plan file will give someone something to work with.

 

Also a good idea to fill out your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Your Chief version -- X9, X10 is the key bit of info.

Yes, please start your own thread.  Also, close your plan in CA, zip it and attach it for the best help.
