Generate Roof Plan with Metal Roof for Heat Tape Layout


Recommended Posts

Having an issue getting a roof panel plan showing the metal roof corrugations so I can design a roof tape heating system.  I built the cabin I designed on Home Designer Pro 2019 and its going through its first winter, 12' of snow so far, and the ice dam areas are showing up.  How can I print a layout?

12 feet of snow?

Could you explain what the need is? That is, why you need something showing corrugations?

I want to visually show the heat tape supplier and the installer exactly where to put the heat tape.  The heat tape is integral with a 16" metal panel clip that attaches to the major corrugations of the roof panel, to hide the heat tape.  The clip is painted to match the roof panel.  If I do a roof panel aerial view, the panel configurations seem to run the wrong direction.

Yes, I made the same modification and it works.  The Corrugated Roof material option runs the rib the wrong way.  Glitch in the material default?  Thanks.

You can fix that with the Adjust Material Definition tool. Just rotate the pattern 90 degrees.
