Roof Framer Placing Wallplates at the Incorrect Location

Recommended Posts


I am trying to generate rafters and wall plates from an existing gable roof. However, when using the 'roof framer tool', the tool keeps placing the wall plates on the inside of the building.

:mad: :mad: :mad:

Thanks in advance!

What version of VW? (Suggest you create a signature with your 'junk')

Why the red face?

Attach an image if you want better assistance.

The wall top plates are not ending up on top of your walls?

If you are using a Roof that was created with the Create Roof

command, then the plates should be located in the proper

place based on your overhang settings. Check your overhangs.

Otherwise just make your top plates manually, it should be about 4 clicks.
