Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?

Don't use a deck for the room type, use a balcony. Then, define the layers in the room spec dbx. to match the roof construction, then add the layers you need (above) for the platform. You'll probably want to add another floor for this. And yes, the room will still cut the roof, but the room's floor will now match the roof assembly.

Hmmm. Here's your plan back. I didn't do much but hopefully what I did makes sense to you.

Hi Robert,

I was trying to create the molding on the glass panel as you have shown. Unfortunately its not appearing on the glass railing wall, any reason?

Is the layer you drew the molding on turned on in the view you're looking for it ?

Make the molding profile really big, like 8'x8', and give it a bright color.

 

It's probably just in the wrong position.

Thanks Eric.  Like I mentioned I could see them on a wall, but not on the glass panel. As you suggested I used a bright color as well

Check your molding polyline -- moldings are OFF on some edges.

      Hey All,
      Please help me to create roof over a floor without walls but with only beam/pillars. I want it to be open terrace but covered from above.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I have a soffit that just wants to be angled. I auto created the roofs and this happened. So I deleted that part and made my own - same thing. So I mirrored the rear roof at 45 into place - same thing. I have included the plan - anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?

      Is there a quick way to do this roofline? I tried putting another level above but its not working. I've done this years ago but can't get it now

      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.

      All,
       
      I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference.
       

       

       
      Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.
       
      Thank you in advance,
