Snap attic wall height accurately

Recommended Posts

I'm trying different roof planes to finish up a corner of this plan. I can't seem to find a way to accurately draw the attic wall height to match an adjacent wall. I can get it close by adjusting it on an elevation view but I don't believe it's dead on accurate. I know I'm overlooking something and I don't see any videos on this. Do you have an elegant way of creating this wall such that a roof plane can be created on it?

That's a last resort option.

Place the roof plane and Chief will fill the gap.

Thanks Eric. I know I'm missing a setting or default somewhere. The roof plane gets set on the default baseline. I was really wanting it to go at the adjacent wall height.

If you raise the ceiling in the adjacent room, it will.

 

Otherwise, just raise it manually.

Problem I'm having is determining exactly what the ceiling height is. The room spec shows the default ceiling height, not the automatically created attic wall height that I'm trying to match.

You want the roof planes to match.

 

After you draw the new one, open it and move it up to match.

Thanks for staying with me Eric. The jagged roof plane is over a default top plate and over the increased height ("+?") top plate. The roof plane specification for the jagged roof displays only the default top plate and baseline. So, once I create the new roof plane, I don't know what height to raise it to. 1730742890_19.2RoofPlaneNotes.thumb.PNG.61b62b88e9a7a22d12495221805d9baf.PNG
