Roof snapping in like a dormer

Recommended Posts

Sorry, not quite there.
I have sense learned that because I have a different pitch ceiling that the wall will be cut at the roof and not the ceiling, and so I need to add a solid. Thank you for trying!

fixed it, not sure what causing it. Attic walls can be a SOB

@ShaneK - You did fix the gable attic wall...but, if you look inside it's not working. The plan has a roof and a ceiling plane. And...I also think the roof plane is cutting off the gable end attic wall in the wrong location.

All that said...If you make the gable end attic wall "roof cuts wall at bottom"...then there is a gap created between the bottom of the roof plane and the top of the ceiling plane...which has a smaller pitch and is a couple feet below the roof plane. You will need to use a solid to fill this "gap".

But my roof keeps snapping and opening up my interior attic wall...

Hi Steve, looks like you figured this out, and I haven't looked into it other than reading your post.  The sentence of yours I quoted just warranted a quick comment in case you're unaware...but if a roof is snapping to something you don't want it to, there is a checkbox in the middle of the 'general' tab labeled No Special Snapping.  If you check that you can sometimes solve problems related to roof snapping.

I will give that a try. I haven't done yet what Steve proposed. I will let this thread know the results. Thank you

Well, well,well... [ x ] No Special Snapping

That worked! I straightened out the roof to be flush on the outside and the roof stayed this time.

Went inside and the wall above the ceiling plane is filled in as it should be without a solid.

I have learned so many things today from so many of you - thank you!!
