I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created?
I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am looking to create auxiliary views of roof planes for creating 3D laser cut models to scale. We were able to cut the elevation views as well as the floor plan, however, we are struggling to find a solution to cutting the roof planes on more complex roof planes than the one I have attached. I am doing this with my high school architecture and construction class. We need the exact view of the roof plane in order to maintain its true dimensions. Is there a way to select an roof plane in orthographic projection and see its auxiliary view? In most solid modeling programs you are able to select a surface or plane and see its "normal" view. I have included two pictures of what I am looking to do which may help explain it better.
I can't change my roofing material. I'm pretty accustomed to switching materials and or editing materials.
In my roof planes specifications dialog, under materials, Roof Plane is listed without a material selected, and the only options I can edit are: Fascia and Soffit/Eve.
I've changed roofing materials a lot in the past, can't get around this one.
If I change the ridge cap material, it only adds the ridge cap profile and changes that strip.
I am using a gambrel roof, so maybe that has something to do with it?
Ok, the next thing odd happening with this model:
The cheek walls on the dormers are being cut at the roof plane locations. I suspect it's a problem with the two roof planes coming together at the gambrel pitch transition points, and being compounded by two ceiling planes below the roof planes created to 1) provide a 12" space for insulation and air gap between the roof decking and insulation; 2) provide gussets at the roof pitch transition where the support studs have been removed to open up the rooms.
