Insert Soffit Problem

Recommended Posts

Test file attached.

Added. Yes, using >AEC>'Create roof...' tool.

It's what I consider a simple roof shape.

The soffit seems to display fine until the last hip is altered to a gable.

I have checked the polygon making sure it is closed prior to the using the AEC>Create roof tool.

I have altered the direction of altering the hips to gables as well to see if that does anything, but no change.

j.christ the simple solution to your problem in the interim might be to model the soffits yourself.

You could also ungroup a duplicate of the roof object and extract the horizontal soffit surfaces and vertical ends for re-use. Replace the wrong soffit ends with correct ones.

The ungroup a duplicate seemed like it would be quicker, particularly if you need to make changes:

- Copy the roof object.

- open a new file and Paste in Place.

- Ungroup the roof object.

- Select and Copy the soffit 3D polygons you need.

- Return to the original drawing.

- Delete the soffit 3D polygons you want to replace.

- Paste in Place the new soffit 3D polygons.

It woud definetely be quicker when you have variable eaves overhangs.
