Round Roofs

As illustrated in Mike's images there are some problems with round roofs. I reported this to SoftPlan several months ago but still waiting for a patch to fix it.

Basically what happens is that when you adjust the roof lollipop to attach to the round wall the roof creates all these additional lollipops to follow around the round wall. Which is what it is suppose to do. The problem is that the fascia for the entire roof gets set to 0" and several other lollipops around the roof jump off the walls. You then have to go around the house and reattach all the errant lollipops and edit the roof and reset the fascias to the proper size. Mike's 3D image shows that all the fascias are missing and that is because they have all been set to 0".
