Roof anomoly

Postby Gibber » May 22nd, 2018, 12:01 am

I have two intersecting gable roof sections, one over the main house, and one at 90 degrees over the attached garage. Creating them was fairly easy but I am left with an anomaly as shown circled in red in the attached screen clip. Can anyone suggest how I can remove the anomaly, or otherwise draw the roof such that the anomaly is not created?

I tried moving the back edge of the garage roof forward until the anomaly was gone but that left a gap in the roofing. I tried filling that with a roof polygon but was unsuccessful in creating one that I could orient properly.

Thanks

Hi Roustaboutpusher. Thanks for the response. Unfortunately my situation is a bit more complex. I have attached a 2D ground floor view that shows that the side of the house that the garage is attached to is not linear. I tried sliding the exterior garage wall over and it did move the anomalous roof section but I would have to move it a full 2 feet to get rid of it completely and that would look worse than the anomaly.

Are there any instructions on how to use the roof poly tool? I attached another clip of the gap left when I move the back edge of the garage roof forward. The roof poly tool should be able fill the gap sketched in red but I cannot figure out how to get the right orientation.

Take a look at this and see if it can help you. Doesn't look to far off.

Wow! That is impressive! Thanks again.

I gave it a shot and was making progress but ran into another issue almost immediately. I set the main roof using the poly-roof tool and adjusted roof angle and overhang. Whenever I did this before the overhang on the gable ends was automatically set to the same as the overhang at the roof edge but for some reason this time it is not the same. The roof edge was set to 2' 0" and the gable ends measure 11 7/8". I could not find any way to adjust the gable overhang. So I tried the roof rect tool instead but got the same result.

Am I missing something obvious?

Other than that, the process you suggested regarding the anomaly seems to be working so far.
