Top plate in wall (or gypsum) as bottom plate for roof???

Is it possible to define the top beam (and gypsum(?)) as bottom plate for roof - so that rafters automatically get a birth mouth's cut around the edge of the wall (the edge of the outside gypsum).

As for now, I make this birth mouth manually in D-Cam, and it takes some time. traurig

No, that is not possible.

Perhaps you can use a little trick:
In roof design put in some purlins, they will make the birds mouths automatically. Be sure to have the line markings on the purlins. Then in Dicam you take each single purlin, and explode the line markings. At the same time, the birds mouths will be exploded, too (without manual treating every single rafter). Delete the purlins, and the birds mouths will stay!

Ok - thank you - I will take a look at that, because I don't know what is a "purlin".

What is the correct word for the horizontal beams, where the rafters are nailed upon?
I thought it was "purlin"? schüchtern

Next update installation I should install more language files...

Hi Planer,

it´s OK: "purlin" is the correct expression for "Pfette"!

Regards,

Jens

It might be "purlin", but I did not work with that - so that's why I don't know what it is.

Hello Planer,
we should install an english version, so its better to translate the correct words zwinker lachend

I cannot find "purlin" in roof design, where is it supposed to be??

Another way could be to just put in plates (that will just run into the wall's top plate), and when finished, delete these plates - but then maybe the birth mouths will not stay??

Yes, it is the bottom-plate. You can also call it purlin.

A purlin is a horizontal member whos top face is in the plane of the roof. (5-3-4 in roof design.) A plate is a roof member whos sides are plumb and level.

If you have a midspan member (not rotated in the plane of the roof) with rafters framed over it, this is commonly called a purlin plate (5-3-2 in roof design). If you have a midspan member in the plane of the roof (it is rotated) and rafters frame into it, this is commonly called a principal purlin.

Not to get caught up in terminology, or anything.

Please read again the second post of this thread. If you follow it, the birds mouths will stay!
