Can Chief X11 make a proper tile roof gable edge?

Recommended Posts

Getting tired of incorrect Tile Roof Gables, I've looked high and low and can't find any dialog boxes to make them look correct...is there a way to have the Trim Tile go over the edge like the pic or is this function still non-existent?  Not really in the mood to create my own!

@Joe_Carrick posted some of his library symbols for that a while back. Try searching Mission, or Spanish Tile.

Here is one I participated in but I think there is also another good one with attachments.

Not really sure if Joe has posted his library or just talked about it as I can't seem to find it, but here is another to check.

I didn't put much effort into this but just adding a round molding to the gutter designation?

You could build a pretty simple 3d molding for the eave

Thanks all for the replies and effort put into them...I think I'll try your approach for now Rene, can't believe the Chief Boys haven't stepped up with a simple option for this after all these years....

This is something we have all asked for many years ago, Yes there are workarounds ,but IMO this should be a standard feature.

Tried the gutter but didn't work....tried creating a Tile and then slightly re-oriented it 3 degrees for proper overlap but I think I need to taper the tile so that it overlaps properly (top is fine but the front isn't)...anyone with ideas how to taper this singular tile???  Getting awfully close using the Distributed Object Tool and offsetting the object -3" from ceiling!!!

 

P.S. I left it concrete color for visual clarity lol!!!

Great Job !   Do a little reading about the "Revolve" tool and Faces, then you will be well on your way.

I believe I saw a thread where Joe had a method for generating 3D tiles for not just the edge but also for the entire roof, since the flat pattern is especially fake looking. Might be worth finding that thread.

Yes he did but it's a lot of extra work.

Thanks all for the help!  I think I got the jist of how to play with this now even though it looks like the Gable really needs to be likely a half round rather than a quarter round like the real McCoy.

Oh well, since I still had the file open I created a larger round and now it does look better I think!  Thanks again all, love this Forum!
