Problem creating vaulted ceiling planes

Recommended Posts

I want to create a vaulted ceiling in my Great Room.  I want the Great Room ceiling planes to match (align) with the roof planes of the Main Patio.  I have tried multiple times, using the ceiling plane tool to create the vaulted ceiling in the Great Room and I get a messed up vaulted ceiling.  I must have a conflict with the roof planes over the Great Room, but I can't see them or know how to resolve the conflicts.   I have attached my plan file, and would appreciate someone looking at it, and advising me on what is wrong.

Before, you wanted the ceiling to run 90 degrees to the porch.

 

David showed how to align them with the porch.

 

Do you now want something different than before?

 

Also, thanks for the signature, but it's missing the key piece of info -- the version of Chief (X9, X10 etc).

Also suggest rotating the plan so it's square with the screen for ease of drawing.

I did not save, but believe David's video shows the procedure. There are videos on the Chief site that go over manual ceiling planes too.

 

I used the delete surface tool to create the view.

 

It helps when you post a plan to have it show your best effort. There were no manual ceiling planes in the plan, so no one is able to steer you in the right direction -- to see what problem you are having.

      I have asked this question on Facebook’s Chief Architect page and no one can figure out or help with what I am seeing. I can’t adjust the knee wall height unless I click and drag each piece of lumber individually. I did this once and then rebuilt framing for another wall and it rebuilt this to what you see in the image. I also had all the ceilings correct and then found them separated from the floor trusses today and the floor/ceiling heights are off. I tried the Edit>Reset to Defaults and that didn’t adjust them. I am not sure what is going on but I am definitely not intentionally doing this. I found it like the images below as I am placing everything into the layout pages and several areas are messed up. Any ideas?

      All,
      I need a little assistance with my soffit planes please.
      As shown in the attached pic, the soffits seem to be floating and are separated from where they should be located.  I must have checked a box in the roof defaults but can't find the source. 
      Related, I think is the fact that in 3D viewing the ceilings planes are non-present also.  I'm assuming they are a related problem but maybe not.
      Any input would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance for your help.
      -DG

      Ok, the next thing odd happening with this model:
       
      The cheek walls on the dormers are being cut at the roof plane locations.  I suspect it's a problem with the two roof planes coming together at the gambrel pitch transition points, and being compounded by two ceiling planes below the roof planes created to 1) provide a 12" space for insulation and air gap between the roof decking and insulation; 2) provide gussets at the roof pitch transition where the support studs have been removed to open up the rooms.
