Manually creating gable roof on a mac

Recommended Posts

I am using HD Architectural 2016.  I want to create my own gable roof I have followed the tutorial to a "T".  And its not working, when I go to camera view there is no roof.  Also I don't see the tool " join roof planes   " on my mac.  I wonder if this tutorial is for a pc.  I've spent hours trying to figure this  out and i'm about ready to do it the old fashion way pencil and paper.  Thanks for any help.

Is your tutorial for HDA or Pro ? HDA doesn't have manual roof planes does it? , so I'd be surprised if you have the Join Roof Planes Tool either.

 

Do you have Roof Planes displayed in the Display Options ? .....  note that EVERY view in HD has its OWN  Display Options DBX..

 

which Tutorial are you  referring too?

At the top of each tutorial is an icon showing which titles it applies to.

 

Also, the Mac and PC versions are the same.

OK somehow I solved it.  I am using HDA version 17.3.1.1 OS X.  And  no roof planes tool for HDA.  But I found how to properly convert the hip roof to gables.  Thanks for your input.

Suggest you spend some time watching videos on YouTube. Lots of good info. You will get a feel for how the program works. 

 

There is also a good help system within the program. Entering "gable" into the help search would have quickly provided an answer to your question.
