Roof plane puzzle

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have what appears to be a portion of roof plane protruding through the ceiling.  Circled in red in the interior image below.  I've attached the exterior view to explain why the roof plane exists in that location.

 

Suggestions for cleaning this up?  Can a roof plane be "notched"?

You may want to raise it just that little bit but you can also break the edge of the roof polyline and reshape it or use the join roof planes tool and it may work automatically.

2 suggestions.

 

Using Vector View shows problems like this more clearly than Standard View.

 

Attaching the plan file is very helpful. Without it others are often just guessing. Close Chief before attaching.

Per Chopsaw's suggestion:

1.  Select the protruding gable roof plane

2.  From the roof plane edit toolbar, select "break line" at the two places the gable plane intersects the shed roof plane over the kitchen bumpout.

3.  Grab the edit handle of the newly broken gable plane edge and drag it diagonally so that it follows the shed roof plane edge.

4.  Select both the gable roof plane and the bumpout shed roof plane.

5.  Choose "Build->Roofs->Fix Roofs".

The protrusion is gone.

Beauty!

Two more suggestions.

 

When you edit your original post, for example to attach the plan, no one is notified. It needs to go in a new comment.

 

For roofs, it's key to know if you are building manual or automatic.

Sorry we missed your edited post but at least you got the satisfaction of fixing it yourself.  Thanks for showing us your solution and result.

Thank-you Eric for the forum tips as this was my first post.  FWIW, I started with automatic, and then added manual edits and planes.
