Dutch Hip Setting is not valid

Recommended Posts

When I try to create of change a Dutch Hip I get a message "Gable Inset Value is not valid". The only way I can get a result is to open it in a non metric file, change it using feet and inches and then copy it back into the drawing.

Do you know why this is happening?

To find the workaround I just opened a new file to see if the roof command would change in it...It opened at a non metric file but then when I tried my template file and a metric file it wouldn't work...

I know...weird work around but true.

The trouble is every time I want to adjust the roof I got to do this crazy dance!

Hence my plea for help...

Simon I've tried your suggestion on a roof where the Dutch Hip Gable routine won't work for me and it still won't work. Very frustrating.

What do you do? How do you get a dutch hip?

Just a note on the nonmetric (imperial) file...

It is just the new file that opens with VW. Any other file won't allow it to work.

I'm thinking it may be an Australian problem?

Are there any non-OZcad users that have had this problem?

I had a similar problem, could not make a dutch hip in 2011 file had to make the roof in empty file and copy/paste. Just did a little exercise in 2012 (see screen shot) and there is a circumstance when the hip creation button stays grayed out.

Bug submitted it.
