you just hit 3D and roof aand can see roof. This is just a remodeling on inside. roof is not affected.


It's difficult to see a roof when there aren't any roof planes present:



Maybe solving your issue doesn't require the roof, but it would help if the images you post match the file you upload.

      I need to add depth to my 2x8 rafters for insulation depth (12" for R-38). Shown is a purlin added to the ROOF PLANE ceiling finish. Is there any way to create a 2x furr-down that is aligned with the rafter but is non-structural?
      We finish attic spaces often so it would be great to find a way to represent this correctly.
      Thank you for any help you can give.

      I am working in this file and the basement ceilings / main floor joists above have disappeared. I checked to see layers are on and now I am at a loss as to why they aren't showing up. I know they are they there because I can see the gap where floor joists should be. 
      Any insight or help would be appreciated!

      Hello All:
      I am designing a house with all cathedral ceilings on the second floor. The idea is to have all the duct work etc exposed. In some areas I would like to do some sloped soffits for light fixtures. So the question is and it may be stupid is do i place everything on the attic level so that it is on the ceiling?
