Can someone tell me how to construct the attic wall above a curved ceiling as shown below? I tried placing a wall in the attic (attic wall) but all you get is a standard triangular shaped attic wall...the bottom edge of the attic wall does not follow the curved of the ceiling.
Here is the curved ceiling...no attic wall.
Here is "with" an "attic wall"...
Hey Guys, gals;
I am having some difficulties getting this outer second floor wall (below) and the attic wall above to align up properly here?
I am working in Chief X9, on this project, please see the photos below(attached), and if you would be so kind, give me your solutions
to this problem? (i.e.) I went up into the attic floor level, as I saw no attic wall there to align with the second floor below either...?
Accurate Asbuilts & Design
This is a design job I am currently working on.
I am attempting to show shingle siding in some of the gable ends. I have changed the wall type on the upper front gable and garage gable, turned off auto attic walls but it is remaining siding to match the existing walls below. I'm sure I have done it this way before but maybe not. I will now turn Chief off and restart.
I thought I would ask here before sending to tech support in case it is something obvious. Tech support takes a while (or more) to get back and I would really like to keep working on this exterior so I can get it off to clients. I could use the material painter but that is a last ditch option that I shouldn't have to use.
trying to draw my roof framing properly all in trusses (not rafters)
when manually putting a single truss on the left hand roof,
chief is drawing the truss all the way across over the middle roof plane.
suspect it is something to do with my attic wall settings? separating the 2 roof plane regions?
what are the correct chief settings to put on the wall(s) objects, roof groups, room settings,
so when I manually draw a truss on the 3 roof planes, they 'behave' and draw as they should?
1. when I build my roof framing in rafters, all is sweet
2. yes, I set the sides = high shed, end = full gable
3. running latest x6. could be an x5 file. shouldnt matter.
attached is my .plan file cut down and some screen capture showing the issues - there are several truss issues - what are the correct chief model settings?.
ps: scott this would be a good video to show how to do trusses in the 'real world'....
