wall in attic not allowing centering of window

Recommended Posts

I have tried dragging in the roof plane so that it cuts this wall and it still acts like the wall  is there and won't let me center the bonus room window on the gable peak.  I have drug the wall down as well and that didn't work.  What simple thing am I missing? I have attached the plan.  It is in x12.  Thanks!!!

Fix the roof plane that's not against the wall.

Turn off Auto Rebuild Attic Walls, pull the selected wall back, center the window, put the wall back and turn on Auto Rebuild Attic Walls.

Your roof plane does not touch the wall...see pic attached.  That said...once you get the roof plan next to the brick - in order to center the window you will need to open general wall defaults and turn off "auto rebuild attic walls".  Then...move the attic wall that you see on the second floor plan that is right where you want the window...pull it away.  Then, center the window.  Then you can put the attic wall back where it's suppose to be.

to edit your roof planes you should do some editing of the roof plan layerset.  Make the roof plane layer a solid line...dark blue (or a color you like) and make it 50 thick.  Turn off the gutter layer and turn off the "roof overhang" layer.  You don't need to see these right now and they just clutter up your view. 

 

The first thing you should do is use the plan view "roof plan view"...then open the layerset and make the edits.
