Balcony newel post to ceiling.

Recommended Posts

In this project I have created a balcony and want the newel posts to support the roof structure.  The generated posts only go where a flat ceiling would exist.  Looking through the videos of the topic, I can't seem to find one that addresses this topic.  Any suggestions?

There was a post on this just recently; should find it with a search. Apparently, CA still has a problem with the type roof you show and railings with post to beam designations. Short answer, best I remember, is CA can't do it without some manual posts and beams.

Well, that does it then, manually create the posts.  Thanks everyone.

Oh yeah, one more thing.  I had never heard of a skillion roof before this post.  Something new every time I visit.

Yep CA Railing Walls still won't follow a Sloped Roof  , so make the railing without posts and then put in a few of your own....

 

Skillion is an Oz and less so NZ term for a Mono Slope .....

In my experience, this style of roof has been referred to as a shed roof, and if the roof intersects or abuts a wall then it is often called a lean-to roof.  Some colleagues have called it a mono-pitch roof.

That's a shed roof where I come from, but we also don't wear shoes. Mono pitch sounds positively snooty. :P

I am getting there, put in manual posts, but now have to align them with the lower posts.  (Not a problem just saying.)  Added some silhouettes from the library, and now have a reasonable presentation file for a client.  I LOVE Chief Architect.  It is both a great design tool and presentation tool.  Now if the lighting worked nearly the same way in PBR and Render, that would be great.

In New Zealand, we use the term skillion to describe a roof structure where the ceiling follows the roof line, be it mono pitch/ lean to or a gable roof form. A gable roof shape is also often referred to as having a 'cathedral ceiling'. 

This is one of the wee challenges of many international users I guess, is getting a handle on American terminology.

A couple of other examples:

For exterior cladding, we never use the term siding, its weatherboard, Hardiplank, a specified proprietary plaster system, or plywood etc etc

For interior linings, we use gib board - not rockwall

But all good fun
