Framing member - vertical piece of roof structure

Recommended Posts


I wonder if there is an option to get vertical piece - support for roof structure using framing member tool....?

My goal is to show (using data visualization in viewport) new addition to existing roof in red. Since vertical piece in my roof structure is column object it doesnt fall in category for framing member and is left out of data visaualization criteria and not coloured in red.


Thanks for help.

As far as I know a framing member cannot be vertical.  You can cheat by giving the slope something like 89.9999 degrees but it will look bad in plan.

@ drelArch,


cberg is correct, maybe us the column tool or just an extrude?  That member might be something like a kingpost and i'm fairly certain the roof framer won't/doesn't create those??  You should be able to class your framing so that you can get the look you're after...
