Wall Framing That Does Not Exist (Upside down gable)

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to find anything that is causing this for several hours.  Turned everything on, re-framed everything, etc., but this upside down gable will not go away.  Any ideas?

I'd send to support, but to get rid of it, I copied the model into a new plan.

I saw this Reported in Beta , but don't remember the Fix off the top of my head.....I will try and look later if you don't get a Fix from someone else

 

there is an error of extra Trusses being generated too in some Plans that Michael ( @Alaskan_Son ) found too

If I use edit area (all floors), copy and paste in place to a new plan, will it copy everything? Or will I have issues?

Also, thanks, I spent toooo much time on that today!!

Things get copied, but not all settings. Your siding color will be different, for example.

 

Best to give it a try and see what happens.

 

Set your structure defaults -- ceiling heights etc before you copy.

It is an Attic wall on the Attic floor level.

Is the gable at the front of the porch open, or is there meant to be a gable wall there?

You will need either a wall or a collar tie of some sort there to stop the gable roof from spreading.

If you want to get rid of the framing, go up to the Attic level and delete that wall.

I have no idea why it is building inverted like that.

I agree with Glenn,  I occasionally see this and it is usually caused by an attic wall at the top level.

 

Delete the stray wall and all is well.

I spent several hours looking for anything, turning all layers on in every view and nothing I could find.  I sent to support this AM.

I will post here the solution when I get it (unless it was something stoopid on my part)

I tried finding that thread but couldn't, maybe it was on the Beta Forum? but is definitely not the 1st report of this....

I don't like you anymore!  No idea why I could not find it, any idea why it was upside down?

Hello William,
Thank you for contacting Technical Support.

I have sent your plan to our developers for review. For now, however, you can manually delete that wall framing from a framing overview.

I would delete all existing attic walls and re-do them

I have fixed the problem, but apparently they did find an issue with it framing an attic wall upside down.

      What's the best way to get my wall framing in check for a pitched ceiling/truss heel?
       
      The problem is it keeps pushing my top plate up above where the truss bearing should be.
       
      I have verified: Room ceiling height correspondes with the top plate elevation I want. Ceiling plane starts at the correct elevation to plane out with the top plate if built into the truss. 
       
      Here it is for the flat ceiling vs. pitched ceiling - why does the framing jump up like this? 
       

       
      Have also tried 'balloon through ceiling above' and 'stop at ceiling above'. No change with 'stop at ceiling abv' but here is 'balloon through' - it actually drops everything down but too low to be accurate.

      Hi everybody ,
       
      I have a long 14 meters wall. For the framing , is there a way to divide this wall in smaller unit module for 
      an easier building process ? Like for exemple , telling CA to create new independant wall each 5 meters ?
       
      Hope i'm clear enough . ( sorry for my bad english )
