Shed Plane Struggles

Recommended Posts

I'm not going to complain because I'm only on day 3 with this software and have made a lot of progress, but...

When I manually draw a shed plane for the top story, I get nothing except the slant of the outer gable walls, and some missing siding.

When I manually draw a plane for the lower section, the gable wall doesn't go all the way up, and the stack stone in between the balconies disappears.

Any insights on these glitches would he helpful.  I've watched the roof videos, scoured the help and forums to no avail.  Thanks

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.

Drag the roof plane back away from the stacked stone wall.


Drag the roof plane where the wall is missing so its edge is well past the wall. See if the wall fills in, then move the roof back. There is a minimum overhang.
