Roof Fascia Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone:

 

I have just finished a custom roof on a plan and everything seems to be in order except for one thing I cannot figure out. I am thinking as always this is something simple that I am just not getting so as always I have come out here for help. It appears as though part of one of the layers on the SIP assembly is showing through the edge of the main roof in the front. Since pictures and plans speak louder than words please see attached picture with my hand written notes on it and attached plan.

 

Thank you

Maybe a bug. You can see how the lower skin (colored blue) is offset when soffits are off.

 

Pull the top edge of the garage roof back and you will see it's the same.

I think there must be an issue with Square cut rafters still.  I ran into a similar situation several versions ago and it may not be exactly the same but I sent all my stuff in at the time.  It may be related to SIP but I have not done SIP before.

 

Please send it in to tech support.

 

In the mean time replace layer 4 of your SIP with "Insulation Air Gap" for your rendered views.

 

Let us know if tech support comes up with something better.

Thanks to both of you. I have never sent anything into tech support so this should be interesting to do this. I have replaced the layer with an insulation air gap. It is supposed to be 1 by 4 furring. I suppose i will have to auto detail that for the final drawings.  For once i am kind of delighted that this might be a a program "bug" rather than a user "bug" Thanks to all the help I have received out here i might just be beginning to figure this out.

 

As for SIPS I do wish Chief would offer more options. I prefer to build with them at least for myself and i have to customize every SIP wall i use.

Quick fix is to make your bottom layer of osb "no material" or "air gap". Cross section will be accurate and 3d views are normal.

Hello Abigail,



Thank you for contacting Chief Architect Technical Support. I was able to recreate this and it seems that the bottom OSB layer is being displaced and pushed out. I will report this to our development team.

In terms of a solution: I could only say to go into your structure definition and set that bottom OSB layer's texture to Opening (no material). This will leave you with your OSB intact with the proper measurements but not have it display in camera views. 



Hope this helps,


Grant

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.

      How do I put a roof return on this roof? Can't find a video about it anywhere on the Chief Website... is there another name for it?
       
      See attachment, and where I drew in black.

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?
