Need Help With Roof Pitch Mistake

Recommended Posts

It sounds like you require additional Architectural services but are unwilling to exchange with a design professional further to obtain your desired results (that is how it seems to me from reading your post). I and others here like to work directly with our clients to make sure they get exactly what they want (a custom home is a Lifetime important proposition). That is why I charge by the hour because house design is a process which includes trial and error versions until the perfect house is achieved and proper exchange for professional services is the traditional way of our society. This forum has the purpose of end users helping other end users of Chief Architect Premier software, are you an end user? If so, what version of Chief Architect Premier do you use? If you want free service, you have come to the wrong trough to drink from, if you are a software user please state what your software is and post a copy of your plan file please. No one owes you their help.

There must not be much of a screening process to getting on this forum.

Actually David has been a valuable long time member and has helped many hundreds here. Who are you?

Perry, I think the post was directed at the OP, and not David. I agree, Dave has been a valuable member here for a long time.

The third poster, I believe was referring to the OP and not to me. The OP has since removed his original post leaving the thread incomplete. Apparently he is not a Chief Architect User and just looking to freeload is all.

OP, if you post the plan, and a little more information about what you need, other members could take a look at your plan and help you out. We're going to need a little more information that "." Thank you.

Ross, the OP deleted his post, so this is really a dead thread. Perhaps a Mod could whack it?

      I successfully imported the floor plan for a house from a dwg file, however I have not found a way to convert the roof drawing into 3D. Is there a way to do that? I am using the X11 version.

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.
