Complicated roofs and dormers

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am having a heck of a time trying to get these roof lines and dormers to work out.  I have attached a few shots to show what is going on

The two main wall sections (front steep gable and under the gambrel roof) want to be brick.  The shed dormer walls want to be stucco.

I was able to break and stretch the walls to work (somewhat) but the roofs will not cover the top of the brick.  I must be doing something wrong because it just seems like I am fighting with the program.  Any suggestions and/or help would be appreciated

Did you zip the file? Use back up entire plan command if you did not

To cover that brick you'll need to ensure that 'no special snapping' is checked. Then you can drag the roof line to the sheathing layer or framing layer, or wherever you'd like.

For wall materials, don't be afraid to use material regions or even p-solids to accomplish what you need, instead of fighting the wall polyline.
