exposed rafters


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I have to have a roof where the rafters are exposed.  I have followed the example in the support section but I am left a roof with the exposed plywood.  I know I can probably fix it with a polyline solid but I am wondering if there is a better way.


THanks in advance !

      I am wondering if there is a way to have some rafters plumb cut and some square cut on the same roof plane?
      Or can I somehow take a single roof rafter and change the angle cut on the bottom, (or top for that matter).
      It would be nice if I could go to a cross section and manipulate the shape like I can with a poly line solid.

      I cannot seem to figure out how to make this exposed gable have the same shiplap siding on it that the house has. I built the patio piece by piece using framing members and added roof planes and ceiling planes then added the gable. Now II cannot figure out how to add siding.

      I have tried every check box I can try and cannot get the birdsmouth on my rafters to lower down onto my beams.  Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing?

      Hello please see the attached picture of what I'm trying to draw. It's a tile roof with partially exposed decorative framing. 
      I did a typ. roof then I drew the rafters and beams manually, but I can't seem to give them a pitch.

      I'm having difficulty moving a valley rafter over to have all 4" pitch rafter sections meet equally. All exterior framing spans are 24'. I've built homes for 25+ years and can see what needs to be done but can't get it done on-screen. I've downloaded three files. Perhaps someone can send me in the right direction?
