Dormer Help

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to model my first dormer.  I can't get the side walls to connect - see attached.  I would greatly appreciate any help with this.  I have attached the plan file too.  Thanks,  Kevin

Draw walls that cover the gaps. Set to Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom.

 

You may need to pull the roof plane back and then snap it to the wall.

Thanks Eric.  The dormer walls are already connecting to the interior walls as shown in the second image.  I thought CA would fill this in automatically.  I'm not sure I understand what you mean by drawing walls that cover the gap.  There are already walls drawn in these locations.

Vector views usually show problems better than standard and you might review these settings to make your camera views clearer.

And this wall should not be High Shed Gable.

Thanks again Eric.  Where did that wall come from?  Is it something you drew or by changing the roof setting it will automatically connect?  Sorry, I still don't follow.  I tried to change the roof settings as you show in your images and the results are still the same.  Would you mind sharing the revised file?  Kevin

The wall you have in the second image where you state it should NOT be a High Shed Gable, isn't.  It is specified as a Hip Wall.

Again, I don't follow.  How can I draw walls over top of existing walls?  Thanks.

You're amazing.  I'm being made to leave my computer to go out to eat.  I'll take a look at the video when I return.  Thanks again for everything!  Kevin

You might check out my videos on dormers...this is an oldie but covers a lot.  Hope it helps...dormers can be quite frustrating.
