Recalculation of Post Heights in Roof

Post Posted: 09.10.2009 15:33

Hello,

I like to input many of my posts using the roof module. I put the plates in first, then add the posts where required. When you input the posts, you can choose the height that you would like them to end at (ex: for posts that you would like to support a roof, and end at the second floor height).

My problem comes when I make changes to the roof and recalculate the Roof Design (5-9). All the posts that I have set at a height other than Zero recalculate to end at Zero.

I have tried using the TE Plate setting on post input but this always just seems to go to Zero...

Does anyone know how to keep the post height settings after the Roof Design is recalculated?

Thanks,

Dan

Hello.

I tried to reproduce that but I couldn't. I entered a post which ends in a height of 2m. After recalculation of the post still did end in a height of 2m. I too changed the slope of the roof and did recalculate ist but it was the same.
The cuting of the lower end of the posts keep their global height. This is what they should do.
If you still have an error with this please give us your project (the position).

Joachim,

Thanks for the reply. I have started a new project and I am also trying to recreate the error. I can't do it either. It seems like it happens late in the project, maybe after I recalculate the roof and the program is asking me if I want to separate plates (if intersecting roof surfaces have been inputted?). I will pay more attention to when it happens and post a position when the time comes.

Thanks,

dan

I have attached a position.

I have just lowered the roof by 2 feet, and I am recalculating Roof Design. When I do this, one post is recalculated to zero, and another plate and posts disappear.

What is happening here?

Thanks,

Daniel

I can reproduce the problem but I do not find the reason. It seems so as if the id number of the roof faces have changed and because of this the program does not find anymore the roof faces the plates belong to.
Do you have the position with the situation before your changings.
