Filling a rake area
SoftPlan Version:
2014 Plus

The attached photo is an area where there needs to be a fill of stone in the rake area.  I thought about drawing a wall and attempting to have it rake at the bottom and join the roof on top but didn't have success attempting that.  Any suggestions?  I have one on the opposite side but the set up is a bit different and I was able to extend the wall into the house to do the rendering.  Once I have the final rendering and having the final plan ready to print I will have to adjust it back.

Solids

I just use a Solid to fill in areas like that. You can use a Plane, Cube, or Wedge. Then give the solid the same texture as the wall.

Thanks Bill, I'll give it a

Thanks Bill, I'll give it a try that way.  Did not know if there was some fancy way to do it.  Do you draw it on the 3d model?

I draw the solid in 2D and set the height, offset, etc. to be the approximate size and location. Then in 3D I edit the solid to make final adjustments to get the area completely filled and get the textures to match up.
