Shed Dormer Help??

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

I am having a hard time trying to draw a shed dormer on roof that has an upper roof pitch. It doesn't seem to let me just use the automatic floating dormer since it crosses the 2 different roof pitches. I tried drawing it manually and couldn't seem to get that to work either. Has anyone ever dealt with this or have suggestions? Also it is just a fake dormer and doesn't connect to any rooms. Thanks

I tried drawing the dormer by creating a hole in the roof and then drawing walls to create the dormer manually, not using the automatic dormer feature. When I tried this the walls would be cut off where the 2 roof pitches meet.

Let's start from the beginning, I'll try drawing this again. First problem I have is if I try drawing a hole in the roof it will not go past the lower pitch as in the picture. On the floor plan view it goes as far as I want when drawing, but won't do it on the elevations, perspective overview?

Break the upper and lower roof planes where you want the sides of the hole. Drag the top of the lower roof plane down, and the bottom of the upper roof plane up.

 

This forms the hole.

 

Draw in your walls on the attic floor. If they sit on the roof instead of the attic floor, mark them Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom and drag the roof planes under the wall.

There it is, Thank you so much Eric! I spent hours trying to figure that out.
