When I multiple select roof planes, I am given the option to change their baseline height or their pitch, and nothing else. So I have to go into each roof plane and set it's fascia height individually - which stinks, partly because of CA's dialogue-box heavy interface. If I have to open up a dang dialog box, can't I at least have the option to override all and set the fascia and pitch or ridge and pitch, etc. for all the roof planes selected?
This is a larger part of the underlying issue, which is that CA needs to invest in a GUI redesign because this one is so clunky and cumbersome. Please Chief, please. Please.
I am looking to create auxiliary views of roof planes for creating 3D laser cut models to scale. We were able to cut the elevation views as well as the floor plan, however, we are struggling to find a solution to cutting the roof planes on more complex roof planes than the one I have attached. I am doing this with my high school architecture and construction class. We need the exact view of the roof plane in order to maintain its true dimensions. Is there a way to select an roof plane in orthographic projection and see its auxiliary view? In most solid modeling programs you are able to select a surface or plane and see its "normal" view. I have included two pictures of what I am looking to do which may help explain it better.
I can't change my roofing material. I'm pretty accustomed to switching materials and or editing materials.
In my roof planes specifications dialog, under materials, Roof Plane is listed without a material selected, and the only options I can edit are: Fascia and Soffit/Eve.
I've changed roofing materials a lot in the past, can't get around this one.
If I change the ridge cap material, it only adds the ridge cap profile and changes that strip.
I am using a gambrel roof, so maybe that has something to do with it?
Ok, the next thing odd happening with this model:
The cheek walls on the dormers are being cut at the roof plane locations. I suspect it's a problem with the two roof planes coming together at the gambrel pitch transition points, and being compounded by two ceiling planes below the roof planes created to 1) provide a 12" space for insulation and air gap between the roof decking and insulation; 2) provide gussets at the roof pitch transition where the support studs have been removed to open up the rooms.
