Framing Won't Reach Roof, Different Heights, And Sections Missing After Changing Truss Depth.


Recommended Posts

My roof was finished and the framing was fine, but then I had to change the size of the top chords in my attic trusses. Increasing the size in the truss spec box didn't raise the roof, but sent the extra width down into the rest of the framing. I changed the value in the default settings and rebuilt it (I tested this in another plan to make sure it works and it did) and now there are sections of the framing missing, most of it won't reach the roof, and my interior walls are different heights. I've triple checked every setting I can think of when rebuilding and I can't get anything to change.


Is there a way to have multiple wall types be recognized as a single wall? I think that's what's causing the missing ends on my exterior wall. I'm lost on everything else.

      Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
      Do I have a setting off or is this normal?

      So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")

      I have run across a problem and I am having trouble figuring out the solution with energy heels. On the front porch I need a 43" energy heel, the back portion of the house I need a 18" energy heel and then the gables I need a 6'' energy heel. I manually generated the roof but was wondering the ways to determine the energy heels. Is the only way to solve this is by placing roof trusses and measuring from there? To go along with that question, I am wondering if I raise my roof planes through the Z delta (in the transform/replicate dbx) is that the same as what the energy heel would be if I were to place trusses and measure? Thanks.

      Working on the plan for this existing house and they have a doorway connecting one catwalk to another but the roof pitch is steep and running 2 different directions. I've attached 2 pictures of what I need the area to actually look like in my plan.
