I am trying to modified a roof and when I finished roof sketch I always get the message "can't make footprint roof". This thread is a follow up from a thread I posted "Design roof problems"

The issue here is that I can't even get the roof to the begining state which I not worried about becuase I saved a copy of it but it really puzzles me why I was able to do it once and now I can't get it even though I follow the same steps as the one I copied. See screen shots.

Any suggestions. Thank you.

Hi Needwiz, the lines are "Closed" like a polyline??? Did you check if there are "double lines"????

Typhoon, I checked and reched the lines that need to be close, infact, RA2009 gives me a warning first if lines segements are intersecting or not then I fix it and click on finish roof and about a minute or two the "footprint roof can't be done" message appears. This is driving me crazy.

This is probably because the roof slopes are either so steep or shallow that they overlap each other in the corners and you couldn't possibly have a physical condition with the slopes the way they are.

Hiroshi,

I thought about the slope giving me the problem but I was able to do the roof once with 6/12 slope and now I can't. I also checked on the line segments do not intersect or overlap and doesn't work. I am fed up with this man. Thanks for your input.
