Curved top Roof

Recommended Posts

Can someone take a look at the attached plan and tell me why the fascia on the curved roof extends almost to the ground?  I've never really attempted a curved roof...and really have no idea what I'm doing...either right or wrong.   

 

I'm sure it's user error...:blink:

Thanks!

I used a single roof plane instead of 2, but still had problems.

 

Resorted to turning off the fascia and adding it back manually.

 

The wall above the window won't fill in either ...

Forgot to add, It works if the radius is larger, like 36", but tighter looked to match the window better.

Eric, thanks for making an attempt.  I think because you placed a single roof segment "flat"...it is cutting off the top of the window and not allowing the stone above the window.  Also...you used a molding polyline for the fascia...which works...but, this is an extra step I for one do not want to do...unless of course there's no other way.

 

Gotta be a way....

I think the program is building the wall to the hip part of the roof and does not "see" the part under the curved roof.

 

I've always used a single roof plane without a problem, but 2 should work.

I guess my question still stands...why is the fascia of the curved roof extending to the ground? 

 

I used two roofs...curved them.   I tried to get them to sit on top of the hip roof...not sure I actually accomplished this.  

 

Let me ask this...does the ceiling (or lack of a ceiling) in the room have anything to do with the funky nature of the barrel roof?

Only Chief knows this.

 

I have this type of problem all the time on non curved roofs.

Well...I got the barrel roof to work.  (even a blind squirrel can find a nut now and then...)

 

Used a single roof plane and set the pitch to zero.  I started by locking the baseline at the same elevation as the 12/12 hip roof...but found that I had to use transform/replicate to move the roof down a bit so that it looked correct.  I then adjusted the curved roof "Angle at ridge" number to -60.0 degrees.  The funny thing is...if I adjusted this number higher than -60 degrees...the roof trim got funky.  -60.0 degrees seemed to be the max I could use if I wanted this curved roof to work.  Maybe it has something to do with it's relationship to the adjacent hip roof...who knows.  It's all trial and error.

 Looks  great ! SNestor  :)...  I raised the curved roof base line to set on top of the existing hip Roof
PS, I set the curved roof to 90 deg EAVES.

      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?
