Help! How do I rake this ceiling?

    Hi All!

    *After* building the architectural for this room, I found out the room has a raked ceiling.

    12′ high on the right, going down to 11′ on the left.

    The bottom wall (281 1/2″) was easy, but how do I repeat the angle on the other side of the room (top of screen)?

    with the bumpouts and closets – that side of the room isn’t one long wall… is there a trick?

     

    Many thanks!

    Ariana

    Hi Ariana,

    I’d have run a solid wall all the way along from the start of the 98 1/2 section through to the right of the 27″ section and then added a wall opening for the gap and then added the other walls (or make them out of thickened panels) as required. Change the start/finish heights as required in a clockwise direction.

    Re the bumpouts and closets, although you have the option of disconnecting the walls from the ceiling, I often prefer to use panels, (thickened up to match the walls) for these. This works well if you don’t need placement zones for those bumpouts. The ‘Custom Elevation’ option now gets rid of most of the need to do it that way.

    Thank you Mike –

    I will try your suggestion!  I don’t think I’m aware of the “custom elevation” option.  I will search the Help menus for that.

     

    Cheers,

    Custom Elevations are available from 11.10.1.1 and are superb – wish I’d had them 10 years ago!.

    This looks SO HELPFUL!  I have the Custom Elevation button – but I can’t figure out how to work it  🙁

    No help in the Help Menu – is it covered in any of the videos?

    You select Custom Elevation and then drag the line to cover the length of the walls. You then can increase the depth as much as you want and move the line around until you get the elevation view you want.
