  1. I see what you mean Tom: Adjust the overhang on the gable by clicking the blue grip, & adjusting the offset for each component except the outer finish. This is almost right, but still means the outer finish overhangs on the gable also. If I offset the outer finish too then of course it doesn't meet the wall at the eaves. Am I close?
  2. Just one point on the offset. How do you do it so it doesn't offset in both directions? I only want it offset in one direction.
  3. I see yes. But it's that lack of manipulation that pulls me away from using Roof objects. The roof will undoubtedly change, which would mean constructing an entirely new one instead of manipulating the existing. It is an area with glaring shortcomings. Oh well. Thanks though.
  4. Thanks Tom. I could do a roof, but then that can't be cut and reshaped - or can it?
  5. Thanks Tom. Please see attached. Corrick Roof.vwx
  6. Hi Tom Thank you for your response. I've attached pictures of the menus once in the roof style. Just to note this roof build up isn't finalised; testing to see if I can make this work. I'm not seeing any effect of changing the offsets.
  7. Hi. Reading through this. But I cannot get my roof right. Cannot extend or retract components of the roof as suggested in the first part of the initial post. I cannot extend manipulate offset on any of the components that make up my bloody roof. Really frustrating. I do not want to see the 150mm timber structure line on the external faces, only the top slate component. How in the bloody hell do you do this? I thought I could put a minus number for the offset. So far I Right click the roof >edit the roof style > and the offset does absolutely nothing...Why?
  8. Eh..Didn't even see the text menu there! Thanks that did the trick!
  9. Hi, So I have some beams and I have ticked "show label" but the text size is a bit too big. I cannot seem to see where to change the height of it. Similarly the Ridge beam has much smaller text, which leads me to believe it has something to do with the size of the object?? I've attached a screenshot. Thanks
  10. Ill try that. thanks guys
  11. Hi, Is there a way to prevent the clip cube resetting and to have it remain as the last used position? As the title suggests the clip cube keeps resetting and it is driving me insane. For example I have it activated, I have the view I want and section I am interested in, if I then turn it off or go to another view it bloody resets to cover the entire project and I have to then reposition the cuts again. Thanks

    Thanks Kevin. I'm not sure how to make my own roof light. I just use the ones in the resource manager. Sorry how do you mean whip together a 3d roof light of my choice. If it was to be 1340 x 1400 do you use the method above or? I'm using VW 2019 Mac.

    It's really annoying. I'm struggling to contain my frustration. Thank you. So...how do I make a 3D roof light???? Kevin above says can make a 3D component. Like this: ????
