Gaps in posts of attic wall railing style

Recommended Posts



I am trying to crate an outdoor structure like a pergola. 


I got pretty far by using Deck as room-type and raising the railing up to the ceiling/beam. 

However, something strange happens, when I lower the roof pitch below 3 1/2". At 3 1/2" the attic with railing

(x) posts to beam 

are rendered correctly going up the beam. 

At pitches lower than that a gap appears. At a pitch of 2" (my goal) there are no posts in the attic wall at all.

If I uncheck 

( ) posts to beam

the posts are going all the way up without a gap, but I am missing the beam.

No one can know for sure with being able to inspect the settings you have applied and or misapplied within your plan file, share a copy of it and also we need to know WHAT software title and version you used to create the file (Different applications and versions have varying abilities and methods). Help us, help you.

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below. I see you are using the Pro trial, but it makes it easier to find.


2) Do you have a picture or sketch of what you want to model?


I used Balloon Through Ceiling Above on the walls with the beam.






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 Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion
