Barge Cuts


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a longtime chief user, but still somewhere between a novice and average user.  Should have taken some training, but I've always been so busy, I bumble through.  However, I'm stuck on something that I'm sure has a simple answer, but I can't seem to find it in any tutorial or here on the forum.  In the past, I would change all this once it was sent to the layout with using edit/cad tools, but this has to have a simple solution.

I would like to have a full plumb cut on my 2" x 10" barge board and use a net 1" x 8" facia board - the roof is primarily a 12:12 pitch.  Each time I try to get it to build correctly, the bottom of the barge is cut horizontal at the bottom of the facia.  There has to be some way to override this, but I can't seem to figure it out. Any help?  I appreciate anyone taking the time to answer!!!


Jim Lawes was my rock star when I had questions, miss him and his humor a lot! 


**Note this is not my house or design in the photo, just the detail I am trying to create.


Thanks much!

I think this was discussed not too long ago but can't find the thread.  You should be able to use the sub fascia or a copy of it that is edited but then the shadow board has the same issue so that may also have to be another copy of the sub fascia and then your decorative peak detail will likely have to be a psolid.

      Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
      Do I have a setting off or is this normal?

      So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")

      I am having issues with an exterior wall. 
      There seems to be a random base plate that is generating a few feet about the first floor level.
      It appears that this plate may also be causing an issue up at the second floor where there is a hole in the exterior wall.
      I try deleting the base plate, but I am not able to select.
      How can I fix this so that the exterior wall generates properly.
      Any feedback is appreciated.
      Thank you kindly. 
      See the areas circled in orange on the attached photos.

      I'm having an issue where the framing members for a flat roof (1/4" slope) over a porch are not displaying correctly in the cross section. My default setting for rafter size and the specification in the roof plane dialogue for that roof plane are set to 5 1/2", but it always draws the cross section as a 2x4. If I select any of the framing members individually and open the dialogue box, it says it's 5 1/2". The trusses and framing for the rest of the house all come in correctly. Any quick thoughts come to mind?
      also, Is it better to upload a screen shot showing the problem or the whole file on here?
