can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio.
thank you if you can help.
For some reason I cannot get an attic wall to generate above an invisible wall in the attached plan. I did a test using an OOB Chief Template plan...and the attic walls work as advertised. Therefore...it seems I've messed with a setting somewhere in my template plan.
Can someone look at the attached test plan and see if you can discern what I've done...thanks in advance.
ATTIC WALL MISSING.plan
I am having trouble adjusting the height of attic walls. It seems to be a new problem in version X9. In previous versions, I was able to edit the walls in 3D using the handles and size and shape them manually. See the attached plan. I am working with the attic walls above the garage. I have drawn the belly bands, and I want the walls above the belly band to be board and batten. The ceiling height is set at the belly band height, so that doesn't seem to be what the 3D wall is based on. Thanks for your help!

I opened a plan in X9 this morning that I completed in X8 back in January. To my suprise, the attic walls for the dormers are sticking above the roof and the windows in that area are messed up. I have noticed this happening before with older plans that we use to modify. I decided to take some time this morning and look through the forums and try to determine what is going on between X8 & X9. We have so many more issues with X9 and attic walls and auto dormers. Something apparently changed...
See photos below of what is appearing when I open the file in X9. I can open in X8 and it appears correct.
I assume some simple setting that I need to fix when opening these older plans. I appreciate the help so I can quit scratching my head and placing blame somewhere else
I have a general question regarding roof trusses and attic walls.
If I choose to raise the roof plane then an attic wall is created. Automatically this wall is a copy of the wall below it...so, typically it will have drywall on it...which is not needed in the attic. So...I create a new "attic wall" type...without the drywall. However, if I will be using roof trusses with an "energy heel"...what happens to this "attic wall"?
As you can see from the framing perspective view...the attic wall does not show....except at the gable ends. (I have attic walls turned on). Does the use of "roof trusses" override the attic wall? I'm wondering if the materials for the attic wall are still being calculated. Also...the attic wall does appear in the cross section view.
Needless to say...it's a bit confusing.
