Half Vault With Ridge Beam Reveal

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I posted this in Chat... but Member "Solver" told me to repost here.

 

Here is the latest on this first Pro Project.  I'm not sure what tools to use to do this next part of the project.

I tried Ceiling Planes, but I'm not sure how to adjust height in this scenario.  If you look at the cross section image from the original plans (not my CA plans) provided by the builder for the expansion project I'm rendering, you'll see that part of the ceiling is using the roof-line for it's vault, I don't know how to create the other section of the vault that has the attic space as seen here:

If anyone can point me in the right direction for this vault scenario, and the ridge beam reveal, that would be very appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

SA

The interior vault is affected using a custom ceiling plane "Build - Roof - Ceiling plane" every object has its own dialog box for editing. the exposed ridge beams can be poly-line solids, custom slabs, soffits or framing objects (your choice).

I can't read the attached image - too small for my eyes.

Open the Ceiling Plane and adjust its height and pitch as needed.

I don't see a regular height adjustment option that doesn't affect pitch adversely. X7 

What reveal are you asking about?

The attached image points to the ridge beam.  The existing structure has the beam revealed (visible) as a cosmetic component of the vaulted ceiling.

 

You need to Lock the pitch first, then adjust the height.

 

You can draw in a beam using a variety of tools, and adjust its height as needed. 

 

What product and version are you using?
