Auxiliary Views

Good Morning,

 

I am looking to create auxiliary views of roof planes for creating 3D laser cut models to scale. We were able to cut the elevation views as well as the floor plan, however, we are struggling to find a solution to cutting the roof planes on more complex roof planes than the one I have attached. I am doing this with my high school architecture and construction class. We need the exact view of the roof plane in order to maintain its true dimensions. Is there a way to select an roof plane in orthographic projection and see its auxiliary view? In most solid modeling programs you are able to select a surface or plane and see its "normal" view. I have included two pictures of what I am looking to do which may help explain it better.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Thank you very much! We were able to utilize the "Print to 3D Model" function to create the roof planes in the model below. I appreciate your help as we will be creating 45+ different models of buildings in my architecture and construction classes.

If all you want a view that is square to the roof, you can also use an Orthographic Full Overview and then change the camera so that it looking square onto the roof plane.

You will probably need to change the Tilt Angle to the negative of the roof slope (-22.5deg in this case) and you will need to change the Camera Angle to be square to the roof plane (90deg in this case). 

 

The Print Model is a pretty good tool to do those sort of things though.

I was just reading in another Thread that for Gable Walls ( ie on your Garage) you need to set the Gable Wall to Balloon Framing to get it working in "Print Model"

      Somewhere along the way here I found a good roof label macro and modified it to fit my use - which was great up till now that there seems to be a roof label fill which is background color (white) but it covers up the arrow for the roof plane itself. Does anybody have this issue yet and how can we control the label background on a roof label? I haven't been able to find it.

      Hello,
       
      I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created?
       
      I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated.
       
      Thank you,

      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.

      My client decided that instead of a full 2 story he would like to do a 1 1/2. Is there any way  I can drop the roof without having to delete all roof planes and building again? I have multiple manual roof planes and do not want to lose those.

      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?
