Roof Planes not lining up right

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone can help me with this or not. I am having a hard time getting the roof plane to match up with the surrounding planes. I have tried to lower and highten the pitch and that hasn't worked. When I change the pitch the top part goes really high and the bottom part sinks in lower. I tried to join the funny piece and the piece to the left  together it pulls the left piece really far down and makes holes in the ceiling. 

 

I'm not sure what to do to fix the problem with the roof. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you want a roof plane to match the height of the roof planes to the right and left of it, find out what the baseline height, pitch and fascia top values are and impress those values on the roof plane that requires editing. After you insure that the middle roof plane now displays the same baseline, pitch and fascia top you can then use the "Join roofs" tool to finish up.

An important factor when manually editing roof planes is to make sure that edited roof planes all have their plan view baselines properly located on the outer edge of the framing over which they build on. Those four factors (baseline location, baseline height, pitch and fascia height) should all match when you have things properly adjusted (Overhang values can directly affect fascia top height so make sure they are all set the same, one to another).

Yes all the rooms have the same ceiling height.

I actually figured out the problem and it has been fixed. Thank you for the help with it
