Build Roof Specification, Pitch Setting, Not Working

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Home Designer Pro User since ver. 2012.

 

Using Home Designer Pro 2017, Build 18.3.1.2x64

Windows 10, Anniversary Update

Intermediate Skill Level.

 

When I build a roof using the Build Roof Dialog Box, no matter what pitch I enter, the roof is built to 6/12.

 

I had not noticed this before on earlier versions.

 

I have to manually go through each roof plane and change it to the pitch I want.

 

I have read the manual again, checked the Forum for answers with no solutions found.

 

Anyone else experiencing this issue, or am I alone on this.

 

Philip

1) Please take a minute and fill out your signature -- see below. Knowing what software you are using is often key to providing a suggestion. Having it in your sig makes it always available in a standard location.


 


2) Start a new plan. 4 walls, one room. Do you still have the problem?


 


3) Posting the plan file helps.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

This seems to be a new phenomenon in HD Pro 2017.

Already tried your suggestion with new, simple, 4 walls, plan. The result is always 6/12 pitch no matter what I set in the specifications.

I guess I will have to contact tech support.

I solved this issue.

 

I don't think it used to work this way, but I had to go the the Default Settings and change the pitch on the Roof tab of Exterior Walls.
