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.
I am working on a simple room addition project. I am having a problem with adding the new roof planes over the new addition.
I have already input the existing floor plans along with roof framing. The existing roof is framed with roof trusses. The new
additions roof will be conventional framing.
I had a hard time getting the roof planes on the new addition. Half of the roof plane would not join together using the join roof
planes tool. When I pulled the new roof over the existing roof planes the new would not stop when they intersected the existing
roof planes. With a lot of time I was able to get it to look right in perspective view even though I keep getting error messages
when working on the roof planes.
I also have a few line sowing up on the roof plan that I can not identify. Could someone take a look at my plan and let me know
where I am going wrong.
