    Please take a full overview camera shot and orbit to where the right side of the porch is visible and you can see the gap between the main roof and the porch fascia board that I was speaking of earlier. I cannot close the gap no matter what I do.

    Roof Design Help

    Practice_Plan-Rev1_12-03-15.plan Hello David, Thank you for the guided video. It offered great insight on how to manually manipulate a roof. Eric, I followed the steps that you outlined and restored the plan back to its original layout; however, the roof over the manually built bay windows by the garage picked up the 45 degree roof plane. I deleted them and drew a manual roof plane over them with the porch. The front porch should look like the attached drawing with an 8/12 pitch. I've been playing with the program for the past two days in an attempt to not bug you guys with, what seems to be, trivial things. I've tried to add the rear porch with the 3/12 pitch per the post in June; however, I guess I have a thick skull because I am still having issues with the connecting point: there is a gap between the fascia board of the porch and the main roof line when 3D viewed via the left elevation. How do you add gutters on just one part of the roof? If I add gutters to the roof plane to the right of the rear porch it adds them over the entire roof plane, even where the upper portion of the porch roof and the main roof meet. I noticed this when trying to join the two planes together. Can one of you guys help me with this? Thanks!

    Roof Design Help

    New construction. I purchased a 2D drawing from a designer online and wanted to put it in Designer Pro to create various walk throughs and add personal touches; however, I am having troubles matching the roof systems up. I have included a PDF file of the online designer roof (ODR) as well as the drawn plan in Cheif Architect. I would like to match the ODR roof with the CA roof however, I am having troubles doing so - the cuts are vastly different. Any assistance helping me understand what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated. The entire house has roof pitch of 8/12 with the exception of the back porch, which is 3/12. Thanks again.

    Grass Garage Floor

    As it turns out, I had loaded a camera view of the plan that had grass, I'm assuming before the foundation was generated, and it did not change when the plan was updated. I deleted and reinstated the camera view and the foundation is now there. Thanks for your help!

    Can someone please help me determine why I have a grass floor for a foundation in 3D view in the garage of the attached plan? practice_plan_11_29_15.plan

    Sporadic Items in Material List

    I am running Designer Pro 2016. There are materials listed that are not associated with a given room when I highlight a specific room. Example: On the enclosed floor plan, if I highlight the room designated as SHR in the Master Bath I get corner boards & a ficus. Can someone help me understand why this is please? Also if I perform a material list on all floors on the associated plan with "Cut/Buy" list set i get ceiling joist that are 1 1/8" x Width - Length. I have not specified a thickness of 1 1/8" anywhere that I can determine; where is this coming from? Thanks again, cxcarter Test_House_Plan_2453_Rev5_09-03-15.plan
  12. I am runnng HD PRO 2016: Is there any way to design the triangled areas where base cabinets meet on angled walls where the walls are less than or greater than 90 degrees? If the walls are 90 degrees then a corner cabinet can be built; however, any other angle does not appear to conform to the angled walls. I would like to create corner doors where two cabinets meet and gain access to the voided area(s). Thanks for any help that can be rendered. cxcarter

    Porch Creation with Different Roof Pitches

    I most likely presented it incorrectly. I was actually looking for the layout that Eric produced. When I set the values above I received what you are depicting and expected Eric's results - that was the difference I was speaking of. The porch is definitely tied into the garage roof at the same fascia height. I am looking for the steps that were taken to achieve Eric's outcome.

    Porch Creation with Different Roof Pitches

    Eric, I'm new to this software and arena and appreciate you taking the time to assist me in this endeavor. The floor plan is exactly what I am looking for; however, I'm hopeful that I may gain an understanding on how you got there. When I tried setting the porch wall: lower/upper 3/12 & 8/12 with baseline set at 144" with an auto build set, the outcome was close but not the same. On a side note: the program automatically created the undesireable attic walls for some reason what is the best way to remove them without causing issues?
