See my responses (in bold) below...


 

  • Bath house with metal building structure of metal studs
  • need exterior gable walls to go to bottom of roof  You need to make the roof completely cover the wall for this to happen.
  • need dropped 2'x2' layin 8 ft ht ceiling (mechanical needs to fit in attic)  I must be missing something.  It looks like you already have this.
  • Need metal joists in Laundry room to span other direction toward restrooms.  Build>Framing>Joist Direction.  Drop one in plan running the correct direction.
  • Wall where toilets are will not change to have tile on the inside ?  This is because your wall definition has Insulation Air Gap as your main interior layer.  Delete that and you should be good to go.
  • Needs to be metal standing seam roof.  This is a lot more complex.  Not sure I want to take the time to go through this.  Not a quick and easy solution though.  As far as I know it pretty much has to be done manually.  I would probably either build another roof on top and only display the "framing" (standing seams) and ridge cap (might require making a symbol out of the roof) OR just use polyline solids.

There is what looks like standing seam to me in the Lib.

 

It's not 3D though.

That's the real issue with standing seam roofing I think.  It is very 3D in nature.  If its not 3D, it simply doesn't look right.

1.  Build wall framing.

2.  Depending on which is in the correct position, either move the gable walls up to meet the roof or move the roof down to sit on the walls.

3.  Looks like you already have a dropped 8 ft. ceiling with laying panels as described (???).  Don't have a clue on your mechanicals which you haven't provided any information on!!!

4.  Edit your existing joists (lengths) in areas as needed.  You can make a copy of one of them, rotate 90° and then edit length/position as needed and make extra copies.

5.  Turn off main layer only for tiled partition walls; fix your outside wall definitions to include tile where needed.

7.  Change roof material to metal standing seam from library.

On your gable ends, you need to pull (drag) your roof planes out to match the outer face of your siding material before your attic gable walls will fill in correctly.

It seems like perhaps the responses I placed in bold inside the quoted OP in my first post were going unnoticed so I edited that post by just removing the "Quote box" (or whatever its called) to make them a little more clear.

Michael:

 

I didn't see your post so I responded as shown.  I just copied and pasted the OP's points in question.  Been awhile since I tried using the quote box thingy.

      Hi 
       
      Normally I don't have too many issues with roofs unless they are complicated.  This one looks simple .. but I can't seem to get the straight across area for the roof indent. I can have teh roof with gable but not as it looks in the picture--- as you can see by the one with the X this is what I  end up with and the other is how it should look.. Any suggestions.. I tried adding another floor and reducing the height but then the roof was too high
       
      You're imput is always welcome
       
      Thanks

      All,
       
      I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference.
       

       

       
      Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.
       
      Thank you in advance,

      Hello,
      I have been learning a lot about building porches, both manually and using Railings.
      I used a Room Divider to make the concrete pad. Then a molding profile to add 4" around it. 
      I made a 1x1 sq profile and made my beam, and added in my columns.
      I built several porches trying different roofs, but end up with no gable end wall. 
      I tried added an exterior wall and making it an attic wall, which added some frieze boards, but the wall just covered my porch from concrete up.
      Not finding much on videos for porches.
      Thank you

      How do I get the siding to show up on in the gable? See attached pictures.. Also, what is the best way to align the eyebrows along the front?
       
      Thanks in advanced..
