What governs the size of rafter tails

Recommended Posts

It's been discussed here, but I am still stumped. Curt seemed to get the program to act the way it's designed, at least according the the training videos, but others on the thread have the same problem as I. I can't get the rafter tail to reduce outside the wall framing, without what I consider a workaround, using custom rafter tails. Even with the custom, it's still not really correct. Is this an ongoing issue with lots of people? Should I submit a ticket?

I'm not sure that's possible. Chief has many deficiencies when it comes to real world construction. All I can say is they are getting better slowly

The sub-fascia controls the exterior rafter size.

You also need to check" trim to soffits" and "soffits". If I want the rafters to show I use a opening no material for the soffit material.
