Framing - Top Plate Height - Pitched Ceiling Issue


Recommended Posts

What's the best way to get my wall framing in check for a pitched ceiling/truss heel?


The problem is it keeps pushing my top plate up above where the truss bearing should be.


I have verified: Room ceiling height correspondes with the top plate elevation I want. Ceiling plane starts at the correct elevation to plane out with the top plate if built into the truss. 


Here it is for the flat ceiling vs. pitched ceiling - why does the framing jump up like this? 




Have also tried 'balloon through ceiling above' and 'stop at ceiling above'. No change with 'stop at ceiling abv' but here is 'balloon through' - it actually drops everything down but too low to be accurate.

      Hi everybody ,
      I have a long 14 meters wall. For the framing , is there a way to divide this wall in smaller unit module for 
      an easier building process ? Like for exemple , telling CA to create new independant wall each 5 meters ?
      Hope i'm clear enough . ( sorry for my bad english )

      I have been trying to find anything that is causing this for several hours.  Turned everything on, re-framed everything, etc., but this upside down gable will not go away.  Any ideas?

      Just a quick question to see if there is a way to rotate a top plate so that it matches roof pitch.  This is common framing practice for interior walls and I am trying to find a way to have a sloped plate at the exterior wall so rafters bear on wall with no birds mouth.  Another way to put this would be how can I get the top plate on the wall adjoining a rake wall to plane in.
