Invisible Walls !

Hi,

Back again, unfortunately, this time to try to resolve a problem I encountered on a drawing I created some months ago & now need to finalise the drawing for the project.

I am not exactly sure of the sequence of events but basically I created a 3D where the gable walls had a 200mm deep fascia but this then had to be changed to a detail where the wall went right up to the underside of the roof tile, so I simply removed the fascia from the roof. This left me with a gap where the fascia was & I tried various things to get the wall to go to the u/s of the roof but without success.

I have attached a 3D showing the offending walls. Anyone got any ideas. Thanking you in anticipation.

Hey Ron, from the PDF you supplied I'm not exactly sure what it is you are trying to accomplish.

From what I can see you are missing the fascia, soffit and gable walls. If you are trying to get those back you can edit the roof edge for the gables and turn those items back on.

The gable wall can be achieved in a number of ways.

  1. You can edit the roof gable edge and check Gable End Provided by Roof. Select an appropriate material. This will fill in the gable with the selected material. It will just be a plane so any cross sections would need to be modified to add in framing manually.
  2. You can edit the wall at the gable and select Fit to Roof. This will extend the wall up to the roof, thus filling in the gable with the same material as the wall. The disadvantage is that this may make your framing incorrect for cross sections because instead of adding framing above the wall it is merely adjusting the top of the wall up to match the shape of the roof.
  3. You can add another floor to the stack. This floor would consist of just walls at the gable locations. Again, use Fit to Roof to adjust the shape of the walls

Choose a method that most efficiently achieves your goal.

Hi Bill

   thanks for your reply, I will try what you suggest but It was some months ago when I did this & I was unable to fill in the gable. I will try your suggestions & hopefully they will provide the solution.

   Thanks again

Ron
