I am trying to build a roof .. here are my issues
1. the auto build is out of wack completely as you can see in the image
2. the partially built manual roof has 2 gable roofs- one on the left side of the house - one on the other side -But even though they are both 8 pitch they are of different heights (image)
3. the full over view shows the ceilings..(image)
My issue is how do I build a roof over the angled front of the house . I have read the tutorials - watched the videos-I would like to have 3 gables (a) left - (b) middle (angled wall) and (c) right over the garage..
The house has main level 9' and 2nd level 9' with open below for great room - foundation is also full 9'
I have been working on this for a few days but haven't been able to complete it properly- is it because of the shape of the house??
..welcome any suggestions
THANKS ...I'M TRYING TO FOLLOW ALL YOUR SUGGESTIONS
... is it possible that these roof points are creating a problem. I don't know how to delete them. I went into Preferences then architectural and unchecked AUTOMATICALLY PLACE ROOF INTERSECTION POINTS...BUT STILL THERE. i have removed these temporary points.. i've been working on this roof problem for so long I am missing things..sorryy
wrong pic for roof points
I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.
I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off
If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again. The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.
Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end? Or is this a mac bug?
Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?
I'm working on a huge plan right now, and it's starting to run really sluggishly so I decided to take some time out to troubleshoot and clean up the file a bit. I've done a few suggested things (purge unused materials and CAD symbols, for example), and moved on to my layers. When I started the file, I imported all individual layers of the CAD file so I could work on the plan bit by bit, but it also resulted in a lot of unnecessary data being added to the scene. I'm trying to go through and delete all the layers I don't need or have finished with, but most of them won't let me. Some will claim there's still something on them despite nothing showing up when I hit Control+A, and others will switch to "Used in defaults," after I deleted everything on them. But I don't know what that means, and I can't figure out where in the defaults they're being used so I can turn it off.
The layers that claim they aren't empty when they should be are bugging me, too. Control+A, zooming out and dragging a box over the scene never select anything for me to delete, but they still say "in use." I may be able to provide a back-up if necessary, though I'm not sure my company will allow it and, again, it's a very large plan. Can anyone help?
I am a newbie and using Architectural 2019. I placed a railing on the outside edge of my front porch and would like to delete it. But, every time I try to delete it, the roof goes down to the ground on the porch area. Can anyone help please?
Gang, I apologize in advance if this was already addressed here, but I couldn't find it.
Often, I am asked to build an addition on a deck-style foundation. Is there a simple way to do this that doesn't take forever? I can manipulate the software to eventually do what I want, but there has to be an easier way!
