Roof not generating

Recommended Posts

Ok  I had issues with this plan yesterday on ceiling and floor elevations getting changed magically. I got that figured it out and set roofs to mostly be 12:12 pitch for study and they all generated fine.  I went to reduce pitch to 8 12 and not sure if I made any other changes but nothing I thought would cause problems and then second floor roof wouldn't generate and some first floor roofs getting clipped ??? 

 

I tried copying first floor over to a new plan, rebuilding a new second floor ( exterior walls) from scratch then copying and pasting windows and interior walls into that and it gets a bit better but still no roof over second floor.  Anyone ever experience this?

 

First 2 pics are of original plan..third is from new model with rebuilt second floor

 

Thanks

 Thanks.  I did that...nothing happens.  Out of curiosity could you repost the file you changed?  Maybe it will work ???  

I know I have been having problems with Chief the past month with plans locking up when using libraries and changing materials in a model  perhaps my program is messed up???  No idea. I sent it to a friend yesterday and he had same problem of it not working on those roofs.

Ahhh yes I did open it in X11 as it was already open....I assumed most were trying the Beta but I see Nelson is using X7?

I get varied results with dbx changes that should not be changing the roof planes. (raise off plate for instance).

Thanks Eric. Lets me know Im not totally crazy.  I haven't yet upgraded and was planning to hold off a bit for final release but may be forced to do so now ?  With upgrade/ renewal of SSA I understand we get updates for 12 months so X12  should be online in that time. I have typically skipped years in upgrades.

This is a simple roof to do manual. I would not upgrade just for this one project, unless you just want to.

 

X11 is still beta so if you want X12 too, I'd wait a few months.

Are you on X10 then? or X7   ( time to edit your Signature )

 

If X10 then X11 is in your Digital Locker....assuming current SSA till March 15th/30th

 

Not sure why you quoted me above but didn't say anything?

 

* ok I see now you typed inside the Quote Box you are on X10 , if  X11 Full comes out you can't use SSA to upgrade , you will need to pay the upgrade price not the SSA Renewal Price...

Good Point.  I'm not an every day user so I'm not as used to doing manual roofs but in this case that seems to be working and  shouldn't ultimately be  complex roof( I hope). I might hold off that way on X11 a bit longer.  Thanks again to everyone

Not sure what's going on with this project, but here is a thought on the roof. Having 2 ridges offset and about the same height never seems to work out cleanly.

 

This still needs some work.

 

Also, please update your signature -- I thought you were on X7 too. Here is a how to.

If you move the wall on the left side of the stair over 3" (on both levels), the roof will be there.

Tom,  Thank you...That did work...  Agghhhh  All the hassle over that ?  I got a little better at manually editing roof lines in the mean time so there is that!  Appreciate your time and help
