Hello,  trying to

 

Make both roofs on plan a " Gable End"   when I rebuild roof, I keep getting a "Hip roof" on left end.  

 

Also, see picture.  Is there a way to build a parapit wall on one one of the house?

 

Thanks,

 

Doug

See if this helps you with regard to the gable vs. hip problem...

 

 

Don't have time to get into the parapet wall thing right now but yes, that is totally doable by manually reshaping the wall polyline, by using roof planes to automatically cut the wall polyline, by using polyline solids, or by using primitives among other things.

Couple more suggestions. 

 

Turn on auto rebuild foundation so any changes made above are reflected in the foundation.

 

Your Attic walls are not aligned with the walls below. You can manually align them using the Align With Wall Below tool, or delete the Attic level and let the program rebuild them.

Hi Doug.....

 

  • The House End with the Hip Roof is no longer over its foundation (makes Gable wall mis-saligned too) and many of the Walls are marked as "Attic" even on the Main Floor eg the Hip Roof End 
  •  
  • The Walls with Roofs butting into them are not marked on the Roof Tab to be an Interior type if Roof is Split by Butting Roof and some need reversing to align below properly ie Stucco to exterior side.
  •  
  • Delete All Roof Base Line and let Auto Roof do it's thing , this is a simple Roof , and it should build the Gable end all by itself.

 

To add the Parapet add a BLANK Second Floor

  1. To add the Parapet add a Second Floor and select Make Blank Plan from Level 1 and accept defaults , ie hit Ok
  2. Then in Plan View on the 1st floor pull the two Roof planes back about 30" so they are no longer over the exterior Gable Wall
  3. Go upto the 2nd floor and Draw an Exterior Wall  ( change your default exterior Wall to Stucco 6 1st)
  4. then draw a new wall directly over the Gable end wall  ( hit F9 for reference Layer (Red) if needed )
  5. In an Exterior View or Section View (maybe easier and more accurate) pull the new Wall down to the Desired Height after selecting it
  6. Use a Polyline Solid to Make a Cap for the New Parapet Wall  (4 x16" Concrete seen below)
  7. Done
  8. No need to add Skirt Roof Over Door on Gable End if not Desired (ie. old Western Store "look" )

Also, it's good to have your Forum Signature filled in please, especially with the Software Version,
and hardware can help too see mine below in Blue for how to do that.
