Message: Cannot produce a roof plane.The information in this article applies to:
- All Home Designer programs
- All Chief Architect programs
Whenever I build an automatic roof in one of my plans, a message says,
"Cannot produce a roof plane."
Why is this happening?
This warning message will display whenever the program encounters a problem with the geometry of the roof being generated.
There are a number of different reasons why this warning message might display, including:
Inconsistent ceiling heights
Walls that are out of alignment
Walls drawn at incorrect angles
Problematic roof directives in walls
In some cases, when you create a 3D overview, you will be able to see where a roof plane could not be created. This will offer a clue as to what area of your plan to look for problems.
In other cases, the location of the problem may not be obvious. If you cannot find the cause of the issue, you can ignore the warning and continue to work on the drawing; or, you can send a copy of the plan to Chief Architect Technical Support using our Online Support Center: http://support.chiefarchitect.com/.
