Roof hovering above

Recommended Posts

I have a gable roof. The two supporting walls are different heights. 27" wall (2nd floor) and 43" wall (2nd floor) how do I get the roof to sit where it belongs? I'm using pro.

I see you mentioned Pro.

 

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.

So I try this again. I'm just learning the ways and haven't done any cad type drawing in well over 20yrs. 

I have a gable roof. The two supporting walls are different heights. 27" wall (2nd floor) and 43" wall (2nd floor) how do I get the roof to sit where it belongs?

Are you using manual roof planes, or auto building the roof?

It's not obvious where it belongs. A picture of the existing structure would make things clearer.

it belongs straight down from where it is. When I click below the roof around all sides no other object appear. If you want an actual picture of the structure I can post one. This whole structure is all existing. (it's a 1930 depression home). I'm try to draw this portion as close as I can to actual first before I begin the addition which should be easier than this . 

 

Auto roof is off when I checked. I tried to attach the whole file but it would let me and the file isn't that big?

Did you draw the roof planes manually, or did you use the auto roof builder?

 

Try using the Auto Roof builder, changing roof parameters in walls as needed. Go here for more info.

Close Pro first. There is a 25MB limit, so you may need to Zip the plan.

You can select the hovering roof planes and move them down using Transform/Replicate or via the roof plane dialog.
