I know this discussion has been discussed before but I am having an issue with the roofs overhangs. I have not had this issue before as most of the time the Boxed overhangs have worked but not this time. I have tried everything in the book to make my overhangs boxed and nothing is working. Any idea why my overhangs will show a boxed overhang?
I want to add a porch and roof and meet an existing root at specific location. How to I specify the specific location?
See attach. I've fixed the location of the dormer. The porch roof (shed type) needs to end here and on top of the porch beam. The pitch is what ever it needs to be. I tried to specify two pitches on the porch wall, but I don't distance from the porch wall to the a point just in front of the dormer.
I tried to move the baseline up on the main roof thinking Chief would tell me the height and then I could change the ridge height of the porch roof to match. I couldn't get it to work.
I am creating custom light fixtures and many have a domed shade. I actually used two bowls in the CA library for one of the shades (one for outer color, one for inner color) but was wondering how I could use the included shapes to do this as well or just CAD objects. There is a half sphere available but I want to hollow it out. Is there a way to "subtract" a smaller half sphere within a larger half sphere (create a hole?) to do this? Some of the domes are not completely spherical, so I would like to edit their shape a little and then hollow them out. Trying to do something like the sconce pasted in here.
I also attach a CA plan with the light fixture I created using the bowls (I don't know how to export one user object separately....)
