I'm pretty new to Chief Architect and I have a project with a pretty bizarre roof line. I'm SO close to connecting everything but I'm not sure how to have a roof slope in two different directions. I've attached images of the section of roof I'm interested in fixing (if it's possible). It's a triangle that connects to other roof sections at two of three corners. However, one corner sits high because that section needs to slope in two directions. I was hoping there was a way to select the two corners and simply join them and have the program figure out the slope needed for this but I can't seem to figure this out on my own. Anyone have any tips/tricks/advice?
Below is a OneDrive link to the .plan file I am working on:
I am using Chief Architect X14.
Thanks in advance
Hello, I'm new to chief architect and I'm trying to use this sink that I wants in my model but is not in the library so I have to download it from the website. But when I do it comes out in 2D and the 3D one doesn't come out like I want. I have downloaded the sink in drawing DWG, OBJ and I don't know what to do. The pictures at the bottom are the sink and what I get when downloaded. sink

Looking for LOCAL SPOKANE WA HD Pro 2021 Experienced User to Assist owner-builder creating ICF Building Plans-- ANY SUGGESTIONS?By thecannonguy
We are building our fourth home due to a forced Covid Job displacement move. First three are hand drawn designs. This one is larger and, for me, more complicated. We want to merge a Square 1200 sq ft Gable Roofed living area into a another Gable roof combination 3 car garage/master-suite/mudroom. Both with bonus room trusses as a roof system. I need someone who would be available to answer/ short specific questions to keep me moving along, as we only have a couple weeks to get plans ready for spring building season. Willing to pay for this help on a call by call basis but cannot afford much. Hoping to find someone in the Spokane WA/ CdA Idaho Area.
I've spent over 100 hours on the HD Pro 2012 version. I have 25 years construction Experience but with be using ICF Walls which present more of an issue for an inexperienced HD Pro User than the standard lumber frame over foundation HD Pro is based on.
I've been getting help from the forum but would like someone I could actually get ahold of to get me over speed bumps as they come up. I'm attaching my over-edited hand drawn reference drawings which I am using as a basis for this design. Looking to make printable drawings/elevations.
This design features simple Attic/ bonus-room trusses with gable ends, flat standard height ceilings, flat eaves, crawl-space, and incorporated 3 car garage/shop on slab 1 foot lower than rest of house.
Contact me if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
