Shed dormer help

Recommended Posts

I'm struggling with how to connect room walls to my shed dormer walls.  I don't know if I need to change wall type?  Any input is greatly appreciated.  I'm a rookie user still navigating my way through.  I've attached the plan I'm working on.  I know there are a lot of things that need corrected on this plan but so far I'm stuck on the second floor.

I have not opened the plan but sometimes you need to explode the dormer so you have more control of it.  Auto dormer only gets you so far.

Thanks Javatom,

 

I'll play with that.  I've also notice that when I connect my porch roof that my dormer disappears.

I looked at your plan file and what happens is when you attach the shed roof, it destroys the dormer, so like Javatom said, the solution is to explode the dormer and then manually attach the shed roof around the edges of the dormer. A default dormer object is not programmed to cross two roof planes, you have to manually shape the roof plane edges to allow the dormer to stay.

Wow David!  Thank you so much for the video.  It's refreshing to watch you work through these issues.  Reminds me to stay patient and persistent when learning Chief!
