Problems with Ceiling over balcony

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I am trying to create a townhome structure with 3 levels with balconies.  The ceiling over one of these balconies looks weird, and is dropped from the roof.  See the attached pic.  How should I correct it?

 

Thanks in advance,

Try Use Soffit Surface for Ceiling.

 

That is the quick fix but it looks like in your situation you may need to increase the subfascia thickness of the roof plane to match the framing you will need to hold up that huge overhang.

      OK...I've been messing around with the "Tray Ceiling" tool in X12.  Cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a "nested" tray ceiling.  In the help file it shows to unique icons...one for a "tray"...and one for a "nested tray".  I cannot find where this "nested" tray menu or icon exists.  
       

       
      Is the nested ceiling shown below in Example B possible with the Nested Tray Ceiling tool?  Thanks!

      I am trying to draw suspended ceilings for my office area and having a problem with the suspended ceiling not starting a new grid alignment between some offices in 3D view.  I want each office to have it own ceiling grid layout so I don't end up with small edges and misaligned ceiling tile and lights.  It works between some rooms but not others.  Here is what I do...I use "Draw Line" to layout my ceiling pattern, then I place my recessed lights where I want them, I go into "Room Specifications" -> "Materials" -> "Ceiling Finish" and select "Square Ceiling Tile."  After all that, I go to camera view...I then use "Adjust Material Definition" and select the ceiling.  On the "Pattern" tab and the "Texture" tabs I change the "Horizontal Offset" and "Vertical Offset" to match the lights.  In some cases this works fine and other times the Horizontal Offset and the Vertical Offset don't stop and the interior walls and they adjust the ceiling on the other side of the wall (in the next office.)  I can't figure out what I am doing differently that causes it to work properly some times and not others.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, David-R

      I have a persistent problem with gaps in my porch ceilings in between the finished surface and the underside of the roof structure.  I know it has to be a setting i have wrong but i cannot figure it out! Current project is a barndominium with a gable porch. 
      Thanks in advance

      I do not even have client yet. But contractor roughly gave me info. I need the 2nd floor living area to be under roof of this metail bldg. with 16 ft eave ht. I was making 1st floor ceiling under living area at garage 2 area and then garage area 1 open to steel rafters. When I make a bldg. section it is not putting cabinets and room where it is surpose to be. I want it to be like attached elevation. when I make the garage area to ceiling 11' then it changes the whole right side of bldg. eave ht.

      Option 6 is large enough to provide extra family space in the form of a loft on the 2nd floor. For this house style, we put a balcony over the porch and front door, making this sunny room even more welcoming.
