Dormer - soffit sticks through ceiling plane

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? The dormer soffit sticks through the room ceiling plane.

Hi Steve,

I would try joining the roof planes again. It may fix it. Would have to see the plan.

Without the plan hard to tell exactly.  I am assuming you tried exploding the dormer?

Well - yes, to get Chief to work properly it is. But - increasing the rafter depth will solve the problem. 
 

So - this is an anomaly in Chief that I should submit to tech support ?

Thanks. The roof planes are joined properly.  I think Shane gave me a good solution. Increase the overall depth of my roof.

There still seems to be an issue in that the soffit protrusions don't seem to be equal and then in the glass house view the roof planes that they stick through don't appear to be the same thickness. Oddly the one that sticks through the most has the thicker appearing roof plane.  Is that all just an illusion ?

Yes...they both stick through the ceiling plane the same amount. 

 

Why doesn't the roof plane trim these pieces off like the other components. Weird...

Does your dormer have a different roof slope than the main roof by any chance? I find soffits don't miter properly when joining different roof slopes in certain situations. Although in your case, that pointed end of the soffit shouldn't even be pointed at all! Maybe report that ;)
