Can't change roof pitch on gable wall.

Recommended Posts

Built at 8:12 roof for the entire house and now want to go back and make the gable wall on the roof over the garage to 10:12 to increase space over the garage.  However, the pitch option for the gable wall is grayed out.  I noticed in one of the training videos it cited selecting both of the gabled walls before going into the wall specification to change the pitch but in my case this is just a one-off wall on the front of the house being gabled.  Is there something I'm missing?

Pitch is set in the wall specification for the wall under the baseline, not on the gable end wall.

 

You might be able to use the Gable/Roof Line tool.

Also important to identify your Chief version -- X9, X10 ...

 

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.

If it was an auto built roof, did you check "build roof baseline polyline"? If so, that might or could possibly be your problem why you can't change the pitch. I don't recommend checking that unless you know how to use it.

In plan mode just select the roof plan and change the roof pitch there make sure you check the correct ratio button if you want the fasic's to match up the the 8  pitch

Gables Walls by Design have no pitch , if you want a 10/12 over the Garage you would change it in the Other two (hip) walls of the Garage , ie N/S if the 2 Gables walls are E/W.

 

Any single wall may have a different Pitch from the Default eg 8/12 in this case.
