Use a reference plane.

Can you please be a little more specific, I tried reference planes and it still didn't give me a clean cut, the bottom portion of the rafter goes beyond the ridge beam.

Thanks,

 

Arturo

You could have found the answer in your HELP:

Structural Member with Plane
 
 
 

Use the Cut Geometry tool to cut a structural member with a plane. For example, use Cut Geometry to cut a column to a certain height, or to stop a beam at a wall.

To cut a beam at a wall

  1. Create a reference plane in the plane of the wall where you want the cut to occur.
  2. Click Modify tabGeometry panelCut drop-down (Cut Geometry).
  3. Select the beam to be cut.
  4. Select the reference plane.

    If you move the wall or the beam, the cut will persist at the wall unless the beam is no longer joined with the wall.

Hi Prestijio,

If you want to cut the bottom of rafters as well, you need two planes, one vertical and one horizontal.

The trick to use reference plane is that you have to do it multiple times.

If you have 20 rafters, you have to click the rafters 20 times in elevation view.

Thank you, struggled a little with this one but, figured it out eventually, just a matter of asking the right questions.

Good day!
