Soffits can be sloped to match the roof and ceiling
A vaulted ceiling typically has a different pitch from that of the roof.
Use the Trey Ceiling edit tool to automatically create trey ceilings that match the shape of the room. Or you can use the Trey Ceiling tool to manually create any shape.
Use the Trey Ceiling tool to create a variety of different coffer styles.
When you have a small room with a low ceiling height within a larger room with a higher ceiling height you can create a ceiling shelf above the smaller room.
You can create a dropped, or suspended, ceiling by specifying its structure in the Ceiling Finish Definition dialog.
If you are an interior designer, draw the ceiling plane to the finish layer of the wall inside the room. If you are framing the walls, roof or ceiling, the location of the custom ceiling planes is a function of how you want to do the framing.
