I design a lot of remodeling porch roof extensions and pergolias. I keep having issue closing the ridge up and at the top is another pitch.. I have even broke the lines  but sitll not close up. 

Any help out there? attached is existing picuture. I need to have smooth 6:12 pitch going into exisiging roof.]]

 

Thanki you for any help solving this issue

Is there a special reason the pitch is in degrees instead of per:12?...and all of your pitches vary by a little bit. Did you try auto roofs? Using a standard pitch:12?

 

Double click on the selection arrow and change show pitch in degrees, if that's what you want. Why that selection is no where near a roof dbx is anyone's guess.

      Hi All,
       
      "Roof Beams Appear as Solid Timbers not I-Beams as Preferred."
       
      I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.
       
      I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?
       
      Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?
       
      Please see attached image.
       
      Thank you in advance,
