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 trying to create a roof similar to the photo. I can do the barrel alone, but can't figure out how to flatten the overhangs as show. Thanks!

      I successfully imported the floor plan for a house from a dwg file, however I have not found a way to convert the roof drawing into 3D. Is there a way to do that? I am using the X11 version.

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?
