Deleting a Roof Plane Over deleted Garage

Recommended Posts

I created a garage attached to my Cape Cod style home, and now I have deleted it - all except the roof (see attached image).  Is there a way to delete sections of a roof (roof planes?) without deleting the entire roof?  Creating the roof for this Cape Cod home was difficult, and I hate to think I would have to delete the whole thing and re-build.  Thank you in advance for your help!

You can only delete or modify individual roof planes in Pro, so if I had to guess, I think you probably turned off "Auto Rebuild Roofs" so it won't update after getting rid of part of the structure.

Turn "Auto Rebuild Roofs" back on so that it can rebuild based on the structure currently in your plan.

use "undo button to go back if you haven't saved it yet or you can use a backup copy of the plan, if you didn't make one look in the archive folder in the HDS Data folder in my documents.

 

I am surprised you have the roof you do ,cos at some point you had it right before turning "auto rebuilt" off.

 

looks like the end wall of the Cape is missing too , lost when you deleted the garage walls.

@t65     you obviously played a lot with the plan after you turned off auto roofs

 

you have a bunch of bad walls and 3 or more rooms on the second storey are set to the wrong room heights ,so check all rooms and click the default buttons if needed to correct them. 

 

Add a wall to the end of the house where the garage "was" and set it to full gable, this will give you a room definition and thus a roof. however the room on the end's roof and ceiing are turned off for some reason in the room DBX ,click both to get your roof back.

 

I also found I had to delete the lower master bedroom knee wall ( and the room next to it on the right)  to eliminate some weird roof returns being generated, and I had to turn off the Attic setting in that area so the roof generates correctly as the roof is building off the knee wall not the outer wall ,which is why you have a roof on the 1st floor there.  Once the Roof and heights are as they should be then you can turn of Auto Roofs again and put the knee walls etc back.

 

try this out and post pics (and a new plan)  of any issues  , sorry I can't save it and return as I have Pro 10 so have to use the Trial version to look at your plan and the Trial can't save anything.

 

In some of the pics you'll notice I changed the fill in the exterior 4" wall to blue so they are easier to see as I played with the bad upper wall to get it right.
