Roof plan

Recommended Posts

Is there any videos showing how to create a roof plan for a layout?

 

I have a two story home with roofs on both floors, and I want to show the roof planes, with arrows and slopes.

 

I have tried to find something, but I guess I’m using the wrong search terms.

I'm trying to create a plan to send on to an engineer, and I would like to have a page in my layout to show the roof, along with it's pitches.  

 

Something similar to these two documents, which I did not create.  These are just examples from a different project of mine.  I did not make these in Chief Architect, but it is essentially what I am trying to create.

 

Just don't know the best way of doing it.

With Roofs on 2 separate floors you would need to use reference floors.  Just set up a Layerset that only shows the Roof Planes, Gutters, etc. and Roof Labels along with the Building Perimeter.

Create a "Saved Roof Plan" for each Floor and then Display the Top Floor with the Floor Below as a Referenced Floor.

 

Then send that view to your Layout.

Chief has a couple of tools that may also help.

Display On Floor Above

Display On Floor Below

These tools do not move the actual roof plane to another floor - they just display the selected roof planes on another floor.

I use the move roof plane tool and shade the upper. There is a note indicating as suchimage.thumb.png.1dd4fcc88edd288327475d2abbead380.png
