How to slope a wall?


Recommended Posts

Hello beautiful community!  I have a question.  I'm doing an as build.  On the second floor where a 6:12 roof pitch meets a 48:12 is where I have a wall issue.  I got the roof/ceiling part but how do we generate a sloped wall?  Please see generated drawing.  I'd like to draw it as is on picture.  Any suggestions appreciated! :)  TIA!!

*** I see you said Pro 2021 ***

 

 

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.

Thanks for the tip.  I believe to have updated the signature.  I'm using Home Designer Pro 2019.  I still have not come across a video or a solution to my lil issue, :)

Follow the directions in this knowledge base article, and you will get the sloped wall.

What you are showing in your posted image is not a sloped wall, rather it is the underside of a roof plane or planes. If the slope is wrong, then the roof pitch is also wrong or its baseline is too low or high. That is what is creating the coffered ceiling, not a wall.

Yes, this is correct.  As a mater of fact, it is the roof creating the slope in the software but it's not creating filling up the wall yet showing a void where it should be walled.  This is where I need help with.

Jo_Ann, thank you.

 

Can you help me create the two slopes per the photo?  If you see closer there's a 6:12 and a 48:12 before it flattens out at 8' ceiling.  Perhaps a video would greatly help all of us in the community.  Thank you all!!!

Easier to troubleshoot with your plan file.

 

Close Pro before you upload.
