Hi,

Im having trouble creating a roof, while keeping a pitching height. I have places where i want to specify the pitching line and height, and have an overhang from it but don't have a wall to attach it to. From what I notice, I can't have a specified overhand from a standard line. Is there any way around it. Please help.

Thanks.

INstead of picking a wall you can use the "lines" and just sketch where you want the edget of the roof to be.

correct me if i misunerstood, but if i use lines to draw the roof, i loose my pitching point.

the height of the roof will be where the line is drawn. if i streach it it won't create an overhang, it will just move my pitching point, having to move it up in elevation to get it to the right height (which i think is bad practice).

 

eg. if i have a verandah etc. and want its roof to pitch from same height as rest of the house, i would like to:

- draw a line on the column(lets say center of a column)

- specify its pitching height (in properties)

- and tell it to overhang 350mm

 

If i do that, the edge of the roof will be at that specified height (my pitchibng point), however i want that height to stay at the center of the column

 

once again correct me if i misunderstood your advice ..

this issue really bugs me ... and im sure there is someway of doing this ... hope im not wrong. thanks

So the critical point in your design is the ridge height?

In that case you may not want to do a roof by footprint. You may want to choose roof by extrusion. Then you can keep the ridge exactly where you need it and make the overhang as long as you want while keeping the same pitch..
