special roof planes


Recommended Posts

I'm doing a manual roof build for a Korean style roof (see thumbnail).  The corners of the roof extend and flair up and out.  How can I get CA x6 to follow the curve of this roof?  I've built the roof with soffets to get the angles I need but the program only allows square poles when I need round poles.  How can I replace the soffets with round poles. Thanks

The answer to that question depends partially on how the p-solid was created. Was it created in plan view or in elevation view?

If it was created in elevation, you should be able to use the rotate handle. If it was created in Plan view you, you may need to either…

A. Convert to a solid and then rotate in an elevation view...


B. Convert the solid to a symbol and rotate it via the symbol DBX.

which symbol is DBX?

DBX on this forum = Dialogue box.  When you double click on a window for example, the window DBX opens up and then you can change the width and height of the window in that DBX. 


I was referring to the symbol dbx where you can set the angle of your symbol...couch, car, sink, or even custom Korean roof pieces.

      Having a bit of trouble. Created this shed with manual roof planes to match an existing shed but when I changed the gable & eave depths from 7 1/4" to 2 1/4" this happened. I can't seem to find the settings to fix the openings or gaps. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

      Somewhere along the way here I found a good roof label macro and modified it to fit my use - which was great up till now that there seems to be a roof label fill which is background color (white) but it covers up the arrow for the roof plane itself. Does anybody have this issue yet and how can we control the label background on a roof label? I haven't been able to find it.

      I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created?
      I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you,

      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.

      My client decided that instead of a full 2 story he would like to do a 1 1/2. Is there any way  I can drop the roof without having to delete all roof planes and building again? I have multiple manual roof planes and do not want to lose those.
