Roof planes

Good morning all,

I've been working on a building with three roof planes.  The on-line help video is from 2018 and shows a roof plane tool in the drop down box.  My 2021 HD Pro doesn't have that tool.  Can anybody tell me how to or guide me to info on putting three separate shed roofs on a structure?  I've tried using invisible walls to give each section it's own support.  That doesn't seem to be working either.

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

 

 

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.

There are many on-line help videos, and Pro has all the tools required to do this job.

 

What tool is missing -- a screen capture will help.

 

Your roofs are easy to do manually, so I'll suggest you spend some time learning the manual roof tools. Plenty of videos linked above, and a bunch on my YouTube channel.

Hey, thanks for stopping  by,  here are the two screen captures.  I finally got my roof planes right but my walls are wonky (not rendering correctly)   see my image, which shoes both the issue and the roof tools.  I've also captured the help video which shows additional roof tools that I don't seem to have.

Hi Jo_Ann  - thanks.  i already had a complete drawing when I was asked to change the roof line.  I've been able to get the roof line done properly, but the adjoining walls are not rendering correctly.  See my image in comment above.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Your 1st photo shows that you have Architectural, not Pro.

You do not have manual roof control.

 

You need to use the correct exterior wall type, or maybe you just need to reverse the layers of the existing wall.

Yes - thanks Jo-Ann, I made a mistake - I realize I don't have pro - not sure why I typed that.  The 2018 video indicated that architectural has that feature.   In any event, as I mentioned, I have created the roof lines I need now.  Just having issues with the renderings on a couple of exterior walls.   Getting there!
