  1. Hey Eric,. sorry for the late reply. Thanks so much for pulling that together for me. I'll have a go at re-building the walls. Hopefully that will also work for the weird gable framing. Will also take note of your tips - thanks!
  2. Hey Eric, excuse the ignorance here, but I've watched that before and can't see its relevance to my issue?
  3. Ah ha - found a large image in the file. See attached. It's the top floor, bathroom area (top left room)Kinbasket Services Bldg - 8 FPSF - Small.plan
  4. I can't upload the file, as it's 35MB... Can see if I can reduce it... Is that what you need?
  5. Hello! I've been playing around with this for hours now. One particular room in my project seems to be having issues with wall framing generation. Auto-build framing is on, but whenever I move windows around in this wall, the framing doesn't update. It also doesn't complain if I delete framing members. And the openings are now wrong as per the attached screenshot. The rest of the project framing seems to be working as expected. Is this something people have come across? Andy
  6. Hi again, I don't suppose you figured it out? I'm still really struggling with these birds mouths - the walls eat too much into the rafter; help?
  7. Hi Eric, that seems to just leave the wall exactly where it is and cut the rafter. I need the wall to intrude less on the rafter. Attached plan, thanks in advance Kinbasket Services Bldg.plan
  8. Hey Eric, How is the attached? As I say, I've tried editing the roof slope, heights etc, and it just moves the wall to retain the significant birds mouth. I just want that notch to be much smaller, and therefore the gable wall framing would also reach the height of that central wall. Andy
  9. Hi guys, hopefully a quick one, but I've scoured and scoured for the answer and can't find it. Probably missing something obvious. Designing a shop, so the space is defined by exterior walls, and a central interior wall. The shed roof on the right hand side (see image) rafters are being cut into way too much, and the supporting interior wall just adjusts its height to keep that birds mouth enormous no matter what I do. Turning auto-birdsmouths off doesn't seem to help either. The inner wall is a High Shed wall, and outer wall is a knee wall. Interior ceilings all set to low, but rooms don't have ceiling. All rooms set to 'Roof above this room'. I just want the gable wall slope to reach the top of the central interior wall, and for rafters to sit on top... So the birds mouth would then be reasonable. Help please?
  10. That's somewhat frustrating... I watched all the roof tutorials and could not figure this out. Do I simply auto-build one roof... Then re-size that so it's out of the way, then auto-build another roof?
  11. Hey again, The auto-built roof just does a single slope across the full length of the building. I couldn't get it to create two separate slopes for different sections... I'm probably missing something?
  12. Hey, thank you for this. I'll play around with the baseline. I didn't pro-actively draw a baseline in - but I must have moved it inadvertently at some point. With the Birdsmouth vs. Flat cut - what's causing that? The steeper roof timbers do have birdsmouths in if you zoom. Thanks so much for your time
  13. Hi guys, thanks please find attached the plan. The rafters run in the right direction; just a perspective thing in the image I guess. PassivHaus 16 x 40 - C.plan
  14. Hi there, hopefully a simple question... But I can't get my roof framing to generate sensible birds mouths. They are on top of the top plates, rather than flush with them. See attached. This is one of two gable roof planes. The other is fine, but I can't get this one to build properly. Is there a simple setting I'm missing? I've tried adjusting wall, ceiling heights, removing attic walls etc; changing the room settings. Help?
