Roof planes not connecting correctly

Recommended Posts

I have been manually creating the roof on a house I am creating remodel plans for. In the process of doing so, I have run into issues of the roof planes not joining with the other planes (image 1), and also the planes cutting into my interior rooms (image 2). I am new to this software, so if you have any suggestions on how to correct these issues please let me know. Thanks in advance!

It will help everyone if you put the title and year of the program you are using (Architectural, Pro, 2020, 2021, etc.), as each program has different options. Then I would strongly suggest spending some time with the reference manual and built in help menu so you aren't always waiting for someone to respond.

Sorry about that. I am using Home Designer Pro 2021. I have been searching for a fix to this problem for quite some time now, so I thought this forum might be a good place to look for answers as well.

You now need to read up on how the "Join Roofs" tool works and how it is not designed to work to finish up your roofs. A good place to start is your provided "Reference Manual" found under the "Help" Menu. Read the section on "Manual Roofs and Manual Roof Tools", then find and watch some tutorials about manual roof editing on the Home Designer Website - Knowledge Base and via searches at YouTube for such videos done by me and other Chief/HD users posted there. Only then will you be able to figure out and finish your roof design.

You will find a lot of it in the manual. As I am sure "Solver" will add his comment, update your signature to show the title so it will appear in every post. Sometimes the "join roof" tool can help you as well.

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

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

I have roof videos on my YouTube channel, as does David -- links in our signatures.

 

The Chief YouTube channel has lots of good videos as does the Chief website.

Just from the images shown, the question I ask is why are you manually building the roof?

 

Also it helps alot if you upload the plan.
