Help with roofs

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Just getting my feet underneath me with CA.  Really enjoying it so far but I'm running into an issue with roofs.  I'm modeling a townhome I'm working on and the pitch of the main is a 6/12 while the show gable at the front is a 12/12.  I've figured out how to break the wall at the truss bearing line to create the show gable, but when I try to adjust the roof planes to a 12/12 pitch, it doesn't return the roof back to the main and the gutter boards don't line up.  I feel like there's an easy answer to this but I'm stumped.  Can anyone help?

 

I'm running X12, for reference, and I've attached screenshots of what I'm looking at.

 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Select the roof at the valley, hit 2 on the keyboard, and then select the roof edge of the main roof you want it connected to and it will connect. Do that for both sides.

You'll probably also want to change the Height so that the fascia/gutters line up
