roof pitch.slope issues


Recommended Posts

Do you want to auto build roofs for the whole house?

If so, you need to turn on auto build roofs and then set up the roof directives for all the external walls.

In the case of the garage roof, make the front wall a Full Gable (no second pitch because that will result in a gambrel roof).

You have the correct settings for the side walls of the garage.


If you want to do it manually, do as Robert said above.

I, personally would go for auto roofs because if you edit the plan, the roof will auto update - just my personal preference though.

      I would appreciate any help in correcting the 12 ft hip roof tieing into a 10 ft ceiling roof. 5:12 pitch. I have been trying to correct it for hours. 
      If anyone can Help I would appreciate it. Trying to get const. drawings finished. Need to get back on it in the morning.

      Anyone else have this issue when connecting roof planes with different pitches?  I've tried everything I know from changing facia top height, adjusting the frieze, re-drawing the roof planes etc...I have a 4/12 roof pitch adjoining to an 8/12.  This roof was drawn manually!  Any insight would be most helpful!! Thanks!  Sandi

      Started having software issues Saturday with X6 Mac user. File blew up even though saved multiple times while working on it. No archive file for that day as well which is really odd. Already talked to technical support but no answers.  They checked my system but CA's message log is missing.
      Now part of my roof is missing and I've checked the usual suspects. Deleted the entire roof and started over to no avail. One section is part of a hip over garage and the other is a gable over a big porch. 
      Spending valuable time redoing this file and just want to get it finished and to the engineer.
      Any suggestions?
