Hi 

I am having trouble recreating a roof that exists on a building that I am redesigning some  renovations .  I've attached the actual photo of the roof over hang ( if it is an actual overhang) plus my perspective overview in progress....

Any help is appreciated by

 

Thanks

In this case, the overhang is just a mini mansard roof built on the edge of the flat roof as an Architectural decoration, so it does not "look" merely flat. The roof border is probably around 20/12 pitch and in plan view is probably just a foot or two deep. It is similar to creating a manual roof return when the auto roof return setting fails to work and you have to then step into and draw a manual return, only in this case, you are creating four full returns of 20/12 around the flat roof of the entire building.

      I am looking to do a square overhang but the program is flattening out the eave portion of the overhang. What factor is controlling this?

      Ive been designing and modeling a few pieces of furniture and builtins here in chief and for some reason I'm having issues with countertop overhangs when a cabinet is butted to another cabinet that is a different depth. Ive attached a photo, but ive never ran into this issue in x9. I have countertops set in my defaults to be the same all the way around, but for some reason when a cabinet is placed adjacent to another, the cabinet with the larger depth will not carry the correct overhang to its adjacent cabinet.

      I set my eave overhang in Build Roof, to 600mm.  But for some parts of the roof, i want a reduced overhang (like over the porch).  I can reduce the overhang on a gable wall by setting the ovrhang property in the wall specification for the roof.  But for the non gable wall, that setting does nothing and Chief always just uses the global value.  Is this correct, or am i doing something wrong?
       
      Its a simple roof and there are only a few places where i need a non-standard roof overhang, but the only way i have found to do it is to manually change the roof planes.
