Is there a certain circumstance where an auto dormer is preferred over an auto floating dormer and/or visa versa?

They are different. Choose the one appropriate to the situation.

Yea. I know they are different. I'm asking in what situation would I use one over the other.

When you need the unique properties of one or the other.

 

If you understand the differences, then you should also understand which one to choose.

 

I know that sounds like a smart-a answer ...

I personally use auto-dormers for clerestory light dormers and false dormers.  When I have to have a "real" framed dormer for living space I model by hand.  There are always exceptions to this general rule of thumb, but that is how I view it.

I’ve done a few videos on Dormers...maybe one will help you out.

 Maybe an over-simplification, but in general, use a floating dormer when it will "sit" on the roof instead of on walls underneath the roofline.
