I have just purchased v16.2 I know its way behind the current version but in general it does everything that I need EXCEPT.
I do not know how to draw a gable roof in 3D, my version manual says (and shows) that you can change the angle of the roof but that item is just not in the version, it does not show up in practice.
I am trying to draw an intersection of two roofs in order to understand and measure the Valley and Hip Rafters.
Any advice appreciated.
Do you have version-16.2 Deluxe
, or a Pro
In my version-19.2-Deluxe
, I do not have the "Edit [Roof] Slope Angle" Tool. As least not what I can find in any Workspace configurations or in the list of customizable
Commands. I doubt that it is an available feature in my version-19-Deluxe
; so, presumably, it would not be in version-16.2-Deluxe
What I do, in version-19.2-Deluxe
, is make the [default] Hip roof much larger than it needs to be-- such that the Hip apex is past the intended gable overhang-- then, in Plan View, 3D Boolean Slice
to create the Gable.[EDIT]: See my next Reply for an illustration.
