Does anyone know how to draw these parapet eaves? They are not common here and I've only seen them used in one estate. If anyone has a cross-section drafted drawing of them, I'd love to have a look. Do they use a box gutter (big No-No in this area)?
If I use a soffit block, for some reason they don't touch and half the soffit block disappears. I've noticed this with using them as posts. If anyone can explain this, let me know.
I'm getting beat-up by Chief pretty good this weekend. I've been fighting with these parapet gables since Friday, figured I would get it sorted over the weekend but I'm having lots of trouble and figure it's time to ask for help
I got the rough form down, but trying to iron it all out is killing me. Whenever I make an adjustment or move a wall, other unrelated walls move and change shape.
I'm also not sure how to get the lower floor walls to do what I want, which is to have a 2" brick return (photoshopped image attached).
I've attached the plan, and would greatly appreciate any advice here. I'm willing to change tactics if anyone has a better way of making these.
The process I followed to create the parapets was 1) move roof up in Z 2) change attic walls to regular walls and modify an edge to get it to retain changes 3) move roof back down 4) drag roof planes back and snap to the inside edges of walls.
Just a quick heads up. I recently opened a town planning drawing I started in x8 in X9 to continue with construction drawings and noticed that the picket style fence had been reversed. Seems this is happening to all my plans. Fence rails get moved to outside of pickets, but posts remain on the right side. Gates do not seem to be affected, just the fence panels.
Not a big issue to fix, just thought I would let you know.
Have sent it though to Tech support as well.
