Rain Gutters on Zero Eaves (1/4")


Go to solution Solved by solver,

Recommended Posts

The software appears to randomly put eaves on joint of 1/4" Eaves and Hip Roof.

Question:

How can I access the Object (Gutter)?  Selecting the Object will pick the wall but there is no option in Wall Dialogue for Setting or Changing Rain Gutters.

I am using Windows 10 with HomeDesigner Suite 2021.

Thanks,

Feel free to text (626) 262-4800 or email Michael@Newport-Construction.com

*** I see you said Suite 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.

You probably need more overhang.

With Suite, you cannot change or remove gutters.

Hi Sover.

I checked out the Signature setup and here is what it was set at.

David,  Thank you for your response.  There is actually a no eaves roof and great majority of Spanish and Mediterranean architecture is that way.  But my version is the low end version and while it lets you have as little as 1/4" overhang, it arbitrarily puts some default (No way to change to for instance copper gutter in my case) in some edge and not on all.

 

Cheers and have a nice evening.

Roofs must have some overhang (see the definition of the term " Overhang"), no overhang equals no fascia

Yes, you are absolutely, I get what I paid for.  No Complaint.

No matter your opinions about overhang, THIS software requires at least some so that fascia will then appear and the wall below the roof eave will be properly cut off. Any software is pre-programmed with certain limitations and this is one of them. You can always annotate plans to state that no overhang is to be created but I am saying that this software has that limitation and one must deal with it as it is and not how it might be or should be, it is what it is and does what it does and that is it.
