Roof not displaying correctly with dormers and components




I've not posted before but have seen how helpful some members are, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my problem.


I have a pitched roof, created from AEC, Create Roof.

I have then added a second component within the roof settings called, external 150thick, and internal 250thick.

The roof is associated to four walls below it.

The internal face of those walls trims the Internal component.

I have then created symbols for rooflights and dormers, added these to the roof.


A couple of things then seems to go wrong:


The roof is triangulated in hidden line and some Opengl views.

The internal component doesn't display on the half of the roof with the rooflights.

Only the first dormer added cuts a hole in the roof, the others simply appear to sit on the roof, not creating cut outs.


If anyone has come across this before and found a solution, I'd love to hear.
