Roof Belt Fascia and Soffit Issue

Ever since I upgraded to X14 I've had an issue where the trim doesn't populate on some of my roofs / roof belts. Has anyone else had this issue? Maybe I should try reinstalling X14? These roofs were copied from the adjacent roof that has the trim and has the same properties. It just makes no sense. I sent a request to support, and they couldn't recreate it at the time.

Don't bother reinstalling.

 

Have you forced a roof rebuild?

Are the roof planes joined together properly?  If there's a slight misalignment, you'll see odd behavior.

I didn't look at your file but is the camera cut too close to the bay?

I downloaded your "file" and it would not open in X14 because you attached it while the plan file was actively open in Chief= Zero Kb=no good, try again but close Chief FIRST before attaching the plan file here a CT.

Thanks, I've re-uploaded the file.

Yes I've tried rebuilding. I've checked all the alignments. It's happened for months. Originally I thought it was a glitch with the software. If nobody else has this issue though, then it's got to be the install or my settings.

On inspection I SEE NO missing trim, it looks great to me but obviously, there is something missing for you. Can you be a little more specific, please?

DJP I've drawn in the trim using polylines. Remove the polyline trim and see if it's there.

When you draw manual returns, how they are aligned and connected directly determines whether or not you get fascia, any version. You DID get it done, actually. But with Chief, any version, there is usually more than one way to get an effect.

I deleted all of your molding polylines and used a combination of "Auto Roof Full Return" along with manual roofs over just the bay...

Can you show me the settings you used? I tried to recreate it, but can't seem to get it right.

 

I didn't have these issues before X14. There must be some settings withing the walls/roofs that were updated. Maybe something added in?

Auto build roofs are quick and easy.

Thanks. The person that I learned from didn't like using the auto roofs, so I never took the time to learn them. I will look into it.

It is always well worth starting with Auto Roofs , they will get you there 65-95% of the way , with all the correct overhangs, baseline heights etc, but with todays' Home designs , there are always conditions Chief can't handle Auto ,  so there is inevitably some cleanup to do afterwards.

Initially, I simply checked "Roof Tab - Auto Roof Return - Full" on the long wall and then manually added the roof returns on the bay window walls. Doing it that was lessons the chances of bad manual roof connections. Doing it all manual as you have seen, often makes simple tasks too complicated. I agree with Eric in that Auto Roofs for this house would have been easier to do. To learn more about auto Roof settings go to the Build Roof dialog - Roof Styles Tab for more data.

 

I almost always start a roof system automatically and then just manually edit what it got wrong. The product is the thing, not how it was created.

Thanks DJP. I appreciate the help. 

 

I've been using Chief for a couple of years. I know enough to get by, but still have lots to learn and tinker with.

      I can't figure out why my walls are not meeting the roof.
      I run into this a lot and usually finagle walls by puling on their handles etc but changing from gable wall to hip wall etc seems to make no difference in how the wall acts.
      I just want them to act like when I first drew them where they just automatically connect with the roof.

      I'm having a problem getting a deck to remain when I try to contain it under a roof.  The function of the roofs to the covered deck are to make a covered walkway to the covered deck.  I didn't know where to begin searching for this issue so I'm posting this.
       
      The attached screenshot shows where I'm able to get the roof and deck to look right (4'-1") and where the deck room conflicts with the roof (4'-0").  Ideally, I would make these both 4'-0".  When I try to adjust the deck rail in or out from the back of the house (shown at 4'-0") the deck disappears.
       
      I have attached the .pln file.  Any advise is appreciated.

      I'm trying to draw a skirt roof but the fascia is not showing, see screenshot. Any ideas? I just updated to X14 so not sure if this is a glitch? I've never had issues with this in the past using older versions!

      Hi there
       
      I'm pretty new to Chief Architect and I have a project with a pretty bizarre roof line.  I'm SO close to connecting everything but I'm not sure how to have a roof slope in two different directions.  I've attached images of the section of roof I'm interested in fixing (if it's possible).  It's a triangle that connects to other roof sections at two of three corners.  However, one corner sits high because that section needs to slope in two directions.  I was hoping there was a way to select the two corners and simply join them and have the program figure out the slope needed for this but I can't seem to figure this out on my own.  Anyone have any tips/tricks/advice?
