how do i close this gap in my roof

Recommended Posts

 hi, I’ve been trying for days to figure out how to close the gap in this complex roof. The only way i can figure out to do this seems to  be to create a manual  roof plane and manipulate it (endlessly) by changing the baseline angle, the pitch, and the X – height. Needless to say that this takes forever and that it’s pretty impossible to get this roof plane to perfectly match the surrounding roof planes.  I am attaching some files that I hope  help clarify my problem  ...

In order to help, anyone willing to help would first need to know what software you are using, in detail (what title, what version). Then the helper would know what your software is then capable of in terms of fixing the problem. What do you have?

sorry, I had tried to put this into my profile, but obviously I put it into the wrong field: home designer pro 2019

As I requested in your previous thread, if you are modeling an existing structure, pictures of it will help.

 

In addition, without the plan file to work with, no one can be much help.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

The above videos are "old" but are still pertinent to editing roofs today.

I think that the roof I am trying to build here is rather unusual. The following plan file someone created for me me in chief architect and I imported it into Home Designer Pro abd somehow ruined it (his design looked like the one in the image]:

In order for roofs to best fit together, they must match in baseline height, fascia top height and pitch. No one ever said that manual roof design is "easy", but it can be challenging. Roof symmetry is dependant upon matching settings to achieve a  symmetric roof system. Make sure your roof settings make sense and when they do, they will go together like butter.
