Roof is auto build with an angled soffit

Recommended Posts

When I build my roof (Hip) I notice in the 3D views, that my soffit's angle back to the exterior wall instead of running perpendicular back to the exterior wall. Is there a setting I am missing to accomplish a flat and perpendicular soffit?

Take a look at the choices you can make on the "Options" tab of the "Build Roof" dialog (boxed eaves, eaves set to either "square or plumb") you do have some choices.

DJP,

 

Thank you. Unfortunately, it looks like I have created multiple issues and I am not sure how. I can't seem to get my roof built without the 2nd floor walls disappearing and creating a really weird 3D view. I attached a photo of my settings and also photos of before roof is built and then after.

what were you trying to do with the raise/lower 6" height in the Roof DBX ?    energy heel trusses?

 

sometimes its best to post the plan , so we can download it and have a look

Kbird1,

 

Yes, the roof is a 4/12 so I wanted to makes sure we had room for insulation in those areas by creating a taller heal. I tried to attach the plan and begins to upload but finishes with notice that "No file was selected for upload", /geesh.

not sure it is your disappearing walls issue but check your Ref.Manual for Energy heel (page 447 in mine) the setting must be minimum of 8" , I usually set it to 10" as you need 2" above the insulation (R40) for airflow out of the Soffits too. (HD does not model the insulation baffle as far as I know but a note on the plan would suffice.)

 

if the Plan file is over 25mb it wont upload, so zip it or delete stuff from the plan until it can be posted if needed, eg the terrain. ( use a copy of your plan , not the original)
