I have not had this happen before when building a roof. My trusses are not following the overhang that is showing as well as protruding from an attic wall where the framing is not building. It seems to have worked on the garage as you can see from the image. What am I missing?

You should probably attach the plan also..or at least a sample plan.  This just makes solving the issue so much easier.  Thanks.

As a guess check your baseline height on that top truss if you want it similar to garage one.

Have you rebuilt the Trusses , if you changed the overhang etc?  it is not automatic.....


you may also need the Allow Low Roof Planes Setting to be ON so Trusses will overhang other Roof planes properly

( think this was an issue a few versions ago and we got this setting to help with this)

I did rebuild the trusses on the home twice with not luck in them snapping to the overhang or eave outline. The garage automatically built the roof trusses correctly. The plan file size is almost 30MB - I can try to save to a zip file.

Here is the file - Let me know what you can see.

Megale North Plan


I'm not a "truss expert" by any means...but, it looks like if you select "energy heel" the top chord of the truss will extend out to meet the sub-fascia.

      I have tried every check box I can try and cannot get the birdsmouth on my rafters to lower down onto my beams.  Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing?

      I am having a difficult time with the framing of the rafters; in regards to birds mouth specifically. I am looking for assistance as I have tried many different options in aligning them to the beams. Please help me! I'd greatly appreciate it!
      Ps, I only began to notice the difference, when I changed depth of hip rafters to 3.5".

      I know this discussion has been discussed before but I am having an issue with the roofs overhangs.  I have not had this issue before as most of the time the Boxed overhangs have worked but not this time.  I have tried everything in the book to make my overhangs boxed and nothing is working.  Any idea why my overhangs will show a boxed overhang?

      Help! Fairly new to CA and having a heck of a time getting recessed lights placed in box eaves. They angle to match the pitch of the roof instead of sitting flush with the boxed eave.
      I've done a fair bit of research and all I can find is a topic from 2012 discussing this (see here). Has this been addressed yet? I am running X9. 
      The one suggestion in there of copying a recessed light into the user catalog and modifying it to place in the floor, then manually setting the height seems easiest. But I can't seem to figure out how to get the recessed light to place in the floor instead of the ceiling. 
      Any tips?
      Edit: Well I did figure out how to get them mounted in the floor and then offsetting them, but is there no easier way without adding additional roof planes or soffits?
