That's my guess.

 

I have this type of problem all the time.

 

You could post the plan for a more focused response.

Taking a stab: do you have trusses on the 2nd floor.

David,  Does "Higher Eaves Boxed" do anything for the situation ?

LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE TRUSSES. There is a problem with trusses framing correctly over other roofs, sometimes the eaves will not frame. with a roof below and vice versa. its been that way for a lot of versions now.

I know i have spoken to chief about this in x9, you would think that these kind of bugs that are very common would get fixed in new releases?

I checked trusses on mine, but did not build them or any framing.

You have to select the Trusses not the Roof Planes , ( plan view , turn Framing-Roof Trusses on) .....Trusses are not part of the roof plane , just defined by it....

 

click on truss in the dropdown under framing , then hold shift and group select them all in plan view ,open, check rebuild box...done , all pretty quick...

David -- Is this a truss framed roof? 

 

What about the little roof on the 1st floor?

Eric I can’t remember if the small roof is a truss frame, why does it matter how roof is framed, shouldn’t program work either way for a flat soffit?

because of the bug in the Trusses Building right if a lower roof is present below....

Here is an example I sent to Chief some time ago.

 

Notice how the trusses are clipped on the left instead of extending over the roof below.

 

On the right see how the stick framed gable does not extend over the trusses as it should in an overframe condition.

It would be nice if there was an additional type of roof framing that would create an overframe condition just like it would be built in the real world.  Trusses continue on with a repeat of the previous ones, it just has more framing above it where the overlapping roof plane happens.
