Roof Overframe AGAIN

Recommended Posts

OK,  I have tried to rework this hip roof to be able to do an overframe but I cannot get two roof planes to join.  EVerytime no matter what I check, select it goes all kaflewy. (technical term)

Can someone please take a look and see if ou can get the two roof planes to join?  After rhat I KNOW I will struggle with tying in the additional ones.  One thing at a time.  I want to show how the roofer is actually going to frame it.  Chief will do the auto roof and frame but it comes up with all perfectly connected ridge and hip lines when it will actually be overframed in a couple of sections.

Not sure what you are trying to do with the model.

 

Would be helpful to understand what you are doing to the house -- new work vs old etc.

Haven't looked at you plan, but looking at the picture, if you want overbuilds then you need to do it manually. I always start out using auto roofs then turn that off and manually adjust the roof planes. Sometimes you can do it using auto roofs, by  using a truss base without using trusses, it works for conventional framing also.
