Roof Problems

Recommended Posts

I am having three problems and they might be all related.

1) My manual roof plans will not join.

2) I cant seem to build attic walls that will join to higher roof plane.

3) I have put in scissor trusses and standard trusses, but framing overview shows both trusses and rafters. Do i need to delete each rafter or is something not right?

That roof will easily auto build, so I'll suggest trying that first.


Go to Edit>Delete Objects to remove the unwanted framing.


Spend some time studying how the program works :)


Lots of videos and articles on the Chief website and the Chief YouTube channel has good videos as well.
