wall and ceiling heights

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I did this last October on a project and now for the life of me can't remember how I did it and I have already wasted too much time today trying to figure it out. I have attached the cross elevation that I'm trying to recreate ( with specific regards to the second floor wall and ceiling heights ) and secondly of where I stand at the moment. How do I get mine to look like the Architects? And don't worry, I don't understand Polish either :) 

 

Your advise will be greatly appreciated as always.

Are you referring to the ceiling slope at the outer wall?  Pro has more tools and options than HDA, but with HDA (my program) I would initially set the ceiling height at maybe 8' ?  Then...(when I was sure the roof planes would never have to be rebuilt) I would turn off 'auto build roof'  and raise the ceiling (maybe to 9' or 10' ?).

Yep that method is the easiest , not sure you can get that exact truss built ..but you can get close with a truss and Ceiling Beam , and since trusses automatically delete rafters if in the same space, you can use that info to drop the ceiling planes on the slope and use a custom ceiling plane for the main ceiling plane 6-8 " below the truss.

the plan is done in x7 but you should be able to open it and check things out , I saved the cross section camera for you to look at.

Bloody hell ! Easy when you know how ;) Thanks a ton Jo_ann and Mick. Im not too interested in the truss work as Its only for interior design purposes and not construction but I have to get the room looking like the real thing.

 

Many many thanks again.

umm not quite. yet. While the method worked I only want the wall on the right to have this attribute. The Wall with the glass door ( top floor ) should remain at full height. Is that understandable? See the photo attached. This is what I'm after.

In the elevation view, it appears that the front wall (with the hinged glass door) is a gable wall.

In the exterior image posted, it doesn't look like that wall has been designated as 'gable'?

Thanks all. Yep, I tried with the wall settings but to no avail. In the end I just placed a sloped sofit to create the same look.
