Roofs and disapperaing windows

Recommended Posts

Need some help with an issue in X-6. When I place a roof over a section of my top floor, some of the windows are disappering in the exterior elevation view, although they are still in the plan view. In the interior elevation view, the windows can be seen, but the view is of plywood sheathing.

 

How do I fix this?

Thanks

It would be most helpful if you could attach the plan file.  There are a ton of variables that come into play.

Just a wild guess here, but I'm thinking maybe you had an exterior wall with "No Room Definition" checked and that an auto built Attic Wall was automatically built in the same location.  Again, would be much much easier to figure out with a plan.  Just make sure to close the plan before trying to attach it.

Under the reply window, click on "More Reply Options" and then...

 

"Browse" and select the plan file (again make sure its closed) and then click on "Attach This File".

It seems to me that the walls in the curved portion are not aligned exactly with the wall below.  On a previous project with curved walls i found that copying the walls (including the adjacent ones and then paste in place on the second floor worked well.

 

At the Front Entry and billiard room - the second floor windows have siding cutting through them - If you open the first floor wall you will notice the wall is a bit off angle (179.575572°) that is not parallel to the wall above (180). Adjust the wall angle to 180, and then "align with wall above/below".

Nice catch Mark.

There are definitely a handful of other little things that could be fixed, but your problem as Mark pointed out was the slightly off angle/misaligned walls. The lower wall was automatically building all the way to the roof because it wasn't properly aligned with the wall above.

P.S. I gave you a point for posting the plan. Thank you. It almost always saves tons of time.

I also noticed the same issue exists at your entry area walls.  I wonder if perhaps you were working with angle snaps off at some point.

Thanks Michael !

 

Bn - There are a bunch of wall off angle - If this was my plan - I would go through all of the wall DBX and get the plan square - pun intended.

Thanks to you both, that worked. Another Q- how do I get adjacent roof hips and valleys to align?
