As I change pitch of my roofs, I have noticed that the heel heights change to the point that sometimes walls are sticking up thru the roofs. In the past, I have simply adjusted the walls to fit roofs and let the framer figure it out.
In an attempt to better my product, using harder to find, competent framers, I want to attempt to predetermine correct rafter sizing.
I have a program that I downloaded for my Iphone and Ipad from Home Depot. It takes stairs and rafters and by filling in the span and pitch, will show every dimension of the rafter or stairs in multiple drawings.
It will specify the heel height and the vertical cut as well. Am I correct that I, as a draftsman, supposed to determine heel height for each roof I draw?
I remember a long time ago, and I still have it, a spread sheet that was on Spline or Splash to determine the heel heights, but I cannot find anything in Softplan that can do it for me.
