Shed roof structure

Recommended Posts

The composition of the shed roof is joists overlaid by 18mm ply +125mm of insulation then another layer of ply and finished with felt. Is there a way of showing these construction material I the section elevation. I can do a workaround by increasing the rafter size and then draw cad lines and fills to show the construction. Is there a better way of detailing this, similar to wall construction?

In drafting generally whether in AutoCAD, Revit or Chief Premier and Home Designer Pro. One commonly shows a wall typical, elevation-cross section like your image using just 2D elements drawn in HD Pro in a separate plan in plan view. Another way in Chief or HD Pro is to create a back-clipped cross-section view and then add mere 2D filled polylines to represent your rafters and other detailed objects. This is MUCH easier to do that to 3D model all such objects whether in Chief Premier of Home Designer Pro. You need the elevations and exterior views to look correct (but not necessarily perfect to nine decimal points) and details, cross sections, elevations and especially wall details-framing details are done using a combination of 3D and 2D objects.
