When I multiple select roof planes, I am given the option to change their baseline height or their pitch, and nothing else. So I have to go into each roof plane and set it's fascia height individually - which stinks, partly because of CA's dialogue-box heavy interface. If I have to open up a dang dialog box, can't I at least have the option to override all and set the fascia and pitch or ridge and pitch, etc. for all the roof planes selected?
This is a larger part of the underlying issue, which is that CA needs to invest in a GUI redesign because this one is so clunky and cumbersome. Please Chief, please. Please.
I can't change my roofing material. I'm pretty accustomed to switching materials and or editing materials.
In my roof planes specifications dialog, under materials, Roof Plane is listed without a material selected, and the only options I can edit are: Fascia and Soffit/Eve.
I've changed roofing materials a lot in the past, can't get around this one.
If I change the ridge cap material, it only adds the ridge cap profile and changes that strip.
I am using a gambrel roof, so maybe that has something to do with it?
Ok, the next thing odd happening with this model:
The cheek walls on the dormers are being cut at the roof plane locations. I suspect it's a problem with the two roof planes coming together at the gambrel pitch transition points, and being compounded by two ceiling planes below the roof planes created to 1) provide a 12" space for insulation and air gap between the roof decking and insulation; 2) provide gussets at the roof pitch transition where the support studs have been removed to open up the rooms.
I am working on a simple room addition project. I am having a problem with adding the new roof planes over the new addition.
I have already input the existing floor plans along with roof framing. The existing roof is framed with roof trusses. The new
additions roof will be conventional framing.
I had a hard time getting the roof planes on the new addition. Half of the roof plane would not join together using the join roof
planes tool. When I pulled the new roof over the existing roof planes the new would not stop when they intersected the existing
roof planes. With a lot of time I was able to get it to look right in perspective view even though I keep getting error messages
when working on the roof planes.
I also have a few line sowing up on the roof plan that I can not identify. Could someone take a look at my plan and let me know
where I am going wrong.
