Gable/Roof Line Tool

Recommended Posts

Greetings.  I am TRYING to follow the Cottage Chic tutorial videos.  I am very stuck on Part 10: Building a Story and a Half.  I have followed the tutorial meticulously and cannot seem to pull it off.  Whenever I change the front roof pitch into an upper/lower pitch roof, the main gable roof becomes no longer coplanar.  When I get the main gable roof back to coplanar, the dual pitched roof on the front of the house ends up with a very long overhang.  I have tried many variables in the roof spec. dialog, but seems that no matter what I try I sacrifice one problem in favor of another.  Has anyone else run into these problems?  Also, when I delete and rebuild the Gable/Roof Line and auto rebuild the roof planes. the program doesn't even recognize the Gable Line.  Are these possibly bugs in the software or me just not able to follow directions in the tutorials?

 

Thanks to all who help.

Post your plan, easier to fix it and you learn from what we did than it is to type out instructions. There are many posts on this subject and help in the online training videos.

Follow the tutorial. I did it quickly last night and the instructions are correct.

I always start with the auto roofs on, then at some point I have to turn it off ,and manually repair them to get what I need. Auto roofs are just a starting point, especially with lots of different levels.
