fascia board not at roof level?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions as to why fascia board, when requested in roof accessory window, appears to be at ground floor level? thanks

One of my colleagues came across a similar issue yesterday but with the soffit. Interested in a solution too.

Imagine my surprise when one of my colleagues asked me the very same thing this morning. Fascia and soffit are on the floor instead of the roof.. Any answers?

Hi Guys, OMG if neither of you top VW gurus know then I may get depressed!

Look forward to any help on this one as it makes the roof tool of limited practical use. Have resorted to using wall tool for soffite/fascia for the moment. Quite a lot of control really this way c/w roof tool accessories, even when they do work, especially on existing buildings.

Have found both your comments v useful for work arounds/guidance on the forums (saved many a presentation disaster) Please keep it up!

I can't speak for Christiaan, but just because I hang around here a lot doesn't make me a guru...in fact I've only begun 3D working recently (mainly because VW was so bad previously I didn't bother...).

I've learned that if you keep threads on here alive long enough....a guru will show up eventually though...

As it is becoming for quite a few of the BIM tools in general.....

Same here, for the record I'm not a top VW guru. I'm just noisy.

There are people here who acquired a copy of MiniCAD when they were still in a pram I think.

Will persevere with roof tool, but am getting close to dumping roof storey and drawing lines/polys over elevation views, the fees can't take it...'

Ah, miniCAD...jumpers for goalposts...did what it said on the tin(mostly)

Hopefully this is a bug.

My first 3D model converted into Vwks 2012 caused all of my parametric columns to reset themselves to zero elevation.

I have the same problem with soffits & fascias sitting at floor level, and the roof is way up. VERY frustrating! VW, please fix this bug.

Just recently hit this snag too!

Soffits and fascias sit helplessly on 0 elevation. And it's not as if you can select it and lift it back up - they are locked on ground level.

You know, I was thinking, if this happened on any other product or service I'd probably consider asking for some sort of compensation/discount for the loss of features.

Any VW user who has downloaded and installed SP3 should get a 20% discount for a 2013 upgrade.

For two significant features of the roof tool to be broken in a service pack is totally unacceptable IMO.

Same problem here, i'm new to this software and I had hopes of greener pastures but it's starting to appear that it's got all the same issues as the competitions...Half-baked software programing... All the same issues as ADT circa 2005.

We're on a road to nowhere! Oh yeah we're takin' our time.

So... the Boss said "Why can I see the underside of the opposite roof under the barge board?" and I said "No problem, we'll just add a soffit to the roof!".

Imagine the Client's surprise when they walk out of the front door and trip over the soffit at ground level!

Is Nemetschek hoping that this problem goes away of its own accord???

(P.S. I'm writing this while waiting to see if VectorWorks recovers from another "not responding" message! Professional software should not do this so regularly!)
