Roof help, may lead to more.

Recommended Posts

Hello drafters & designers,

                                            I am, we are, a 30 year old custom home builder in Northeast Georgia with 5 projects under construction, and we're staring down the barrel of 4 more projects + a website about to come online. I purchased Chief architect pro 2016 about 2 months ago and can maneuver quite well until I hit roof design not much past simple. I would love to find someone around the Atlanta area, roughly (will certainly consider other states), that I can export my designs to, have you slap the roof on that pup (and teach me how), and send her back to me. As we get even busier, and it appears that we are, I'd be up for full plan drafting help. We are willing to pay reasonable fees. What say you?

since you are using HD PRO you should also consider posting on the Hometalk forum

which is dedicated to HD users

 

this forum is for Chief Premiere users - but HD PRO users can benefit from following this forum

 

for example HD PRO has most of the same manual roof tools

 

A Chiefer could work on your plan than save it with the edit flag on

and you would be able to edit their work UNLESS they used a feature that HD PRO doesn't have

When I go to home talk forum and click on "seeking services", it takes right to the place I posted this. So what's a fella to do?

talk to CA's customer service

 

they really need to fix this

 

too many HD users end up at the Chieftalk forum

and that leads to confusion and frustration all around

 

CA has been aware of this confusion for a long time

it's time they deal with it

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      I'm using Chief Architect Premier X11
       
      I have all these little 'X's can someone please tell me how to get rid of them?  I've been really playing around with the roof and i THINK they are from that but at the same time i have a couple random ones outside where the roof is -- i cannot get them to go away. Help!
       
      thanks in advance

      Hello, We are having a hard time getting  the design program to do the roof right. We have tried with Sketchup and it got the closest. It's hard to describe I have attached a few pics with a decent idea of what we are trying to do.
       
      The Garage is a shed roof as well as the breeze way, but they are at different angles. The house is a butterfly style with the V running at a angle. WE do not care what the pitch ends up being on any of the roofs.
       
      Anyone know how to do this. I have been trying for hours and the program goes crazy every time. Esp with the all 3 roofs at different angles with each other. I have attached a copy of the plan we made and some pics from sketchup because that program got the closest to what we are trying to do.
       
      Thanks

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?
