Flared siding

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me ho to show flared siding in Chief? I can make it with the polyline tools but it doesn't look right and it doesn't work on the corners. I can't find any information on this anywhere. Does this require a work-around or does Chief have a tool for this?

No tool for it. I believe you'll need to do it the hard way. I've used a molding and I had to make a copy of the material in order to get it to look decent.

Make it with a molding polyline.

For this one I needed to make a copy of the shingle material and rotate it 90 degrees.

Make sure the molding profile for your flare is a closed polyline.

You can also use a roof plane.

Do what Kevin suggested...use a molding polyline. You will be done in a few minutes and can move on to the next thing.

@SNestor Did you get a haircut?

 

No...using Chief often...so, probably just losing more hair. :)

using a roof plane would be used where you need to notch part of it away like a door or window.
