Different Rafter Cuts?

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")

Not sure this is 100% possible with the flush cutting the corner off.  Probably closest you can do is setup your ceiling height on the upper floor to 1.5" which is what would be done IRL since it will need a plate to sit on instead of on the subfloor.  Set your rafter cut to plumb and your overhang to 0.

I knew I was missing something! (the plate) but I do wish that they would put something in the programing to achieve this. Thank you for the advice! I'll reply whether or not this works

      Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
      Do I have a setting off or is this normal?

      I am wondering if there is a way to have some rafters plumb cut and some square cut on the same roof plane?
      Or can I somehow take a single roof rafter and change the angle cut on the bottom, (or top for that matter).
      It would be nice if I could go to a cross section and manipulate the shape like I can with a poly line solid.

      Hello.
       
      I am having issues with an exterior wall. 
      There seems to be a random base plate that is generating a few feet about the first floor level.
      It appears that this plate may also be causing an issue up at the second floor where there is a hole in the exterior wall.
      I try deleting the base plate, but I am not able to select.
      How can I fix this so that the exterior wall generates properly.
      Any feedback is appreciated.
      Thank you kindly. 
       
      See the areas circled in orange on the attached photos.

      I'm having an issue where the framing members for a flat roof (1/4" slope) over a porch are not displaying correctly in the cross section. My default setting for rafter size and the specification in the roof plane dialogue for that roof plane are set to 5 1/2", but it always draws the cross section as a 2x4. If I select any of the framing members individually and open the dialogue box, it says it's 5 1/2". The trusses and framing for the rest of the house all come in correctly. Any quick thoughts come to mind?
       
      also, Is it better to upload a screen shot showing the problem or the whole file on here?
