Can someone please help me to adjust the scale of my layout. I use the metric profile and want to see my objects in meters, but the size is very large, it shows 12,34m units in the dialog number settings under Number Styles. In version x7 it shows 0,450m units in the same settings. If I build a short wall for example the length is like 1200m.
So what is the best practice for laying a shed roof on top of an existing roof (or something similar).
- I want to generate Framing where I frame the main roof, then lay the shed roof on top of the main roof....
- I COULD build the lower roof plane and the upper roof plane, but that screws up the materials: ie i have a whole lot more shingles than I need.....
- I COULD have both the shed roof and the main roof 'join together' --- but then my framing is incorrect....
Is there an option to simplify this? Should there be? A lot of times we want to create valleys by laying one roof plain on top of another instead of building a true valley with a valley rafter....

Creating a standard shed roof for a house in metric using metric parameters and roofing iron materialsBy DCB123
I am trying to find out methods of building a metric model with this style of roofing iron in Chief.
So far am not having great success getting the model to work using the imperial methods
and defaults that chief uses for the materials and the methods of construction for the roofs.
The scan001 has the parameters for what we are trying to accomplish here.
If someone, who has experience building this sort of roof system could answer my post
it would be most helpful. Trying to get some answers now over the long weekend.
Contact me asap please with your solutions to these methods of construction, and
just exactly how to do it in Chief?
