How to get fascia/eaves to line up

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble getting the fascia/eave to line up where the shed style roof ties into the main house roof.  How do I do this?

Is this an auto-framed roof? If not, did you use the "2" key to join those two roof planes at their junction?

If you attach the plan file, someone will look and suggest a solution instead of guessing.

select one of the roof edges, press '2', then select the roof edge you'd like connected. Voila!

That worked for one of the areas but I can't get it to work for the rest.  Attached is my file. There are probably a hanful of issues as I am pretty new to chief architect and learning as I go.  Thanks for the help.

That fascia alignment issue is always a bit of a problem.  If you want accuracy, then those fascia's need to be modeled manually.  What I typically do is something like this...

  1. Set up an elevation camera that faces the problem fasica
  2. Create a CAD Detail From View
  3. Trace the fascia to create a closed polyline that is the the desired profile
  4. Cut that polyine
  5. Paste Hold Position that polyline back in your elevation view.
  6. Convert that polyline to a polyline solid and position it appropriately in plan view.
  7. Depending on the roof, I either turn the actual fascia off completely or reduce its height to nearly zero

solver, thank you very much.  I will be sure to watch the videos.  How do you get a view like that?  Is that using the full perspective view?  I get the attached view when I select full perspective view.
