Connecting Roof Planes Causes Sections Of Fascia To Disappear.

Recommended Posts

you may want to move the house closer to 0,0 origin.  I think that is why you are getting Z fighting in the camera.

Thanks, I always forget to check the origin. Unfortunately this didn't fix the problem. To me it seems like a similar problem to what overlapping objects cause, but with this in mind I can't find a solution.

Sometimes, just re-snapping the connections together can fix odd things that show up.

I've had similar problems with roof planes in the past and the only way I could get it to look right was to just re-draw the offending roof planes.

I didn't mess with it for a long time, but the short time I did spend with it led me to believe it's a buggy roof. I wouldn't have modeled it like you did, but I don't technically think there's anything wrong with the way you did it. It shouldn't behave like that. Probably one to send in to tech support.

Hello Hayward,

 

This has happened to me countless times.. Its all about straightening your roof plans out.

 

Try to make sure they are all straight. Let me know if it does not work for you, and I can make a video. Contact me directly at dave@dmd3d.com

Dave wins the prize.

Have a look at the angle.

 

Dave,

How does this happen with Angle Snaps toggled on?

Whats even more amazing to think about is, Did Chief Architect build their software in such a way that when something as small as this angle is off by, it results in a building error..!

---- I was never one for code, but that's pretty darn impressive code..!

Thanks for the help guys, that fixed it. I'm pretty sure I got that weird angle from editing the roof plane in a 3D view. 

 

While on the topic of roofs, does anyone know why some walls are missing auto roof returns? I've tried rebuilding the roof planes that don't have returns; they're there once built but when the plane's moved into place the return isn't there.

Select the roof planes with the missing returns and under options, make sure boxed is checked.

      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.

      How do I put a roof return on this roof? Can't find a video about it anywhere on the Chief Website... is there another name for it?
       
      See attachment, and where I drew in black.

      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)?
