Hello,

Just select the wall --> click on the wall style button (right pane) --> select style 2 (gable wall) --> set the heights and pitches --> don't forget to press Enter in your keyboard after each change in the right pane (properties bar)

Thanks Patricia. This works and it helps me understand how to use the tool drop downs for walls. I am using Punch Ngen green Home and Landscape Design that I just purchased. Sometimes it is difficult to select a feature like a wall. Placement of the cursor on the feature to select seems to be overly sensitive. Several years ago I used the Pro Home Design Suite (V4) and this new software seems more difficult to use. Just a perception

Hi there,

You're welcome! :-)

You can reduce the sensitive behavior --> 2D --> Snap options --> unselect the unnecessary options

Hi there,

Click on the exterior walls' perimeter--> you will see the eave --> When you select the roof eave, the screen looks like the 1st attached image --> properties bar (right pane) --> tool options--> Options--> in order to develop the second floor inside the 1st floor roof --> uncheck "automatically generates panels" (see 2nd image attached)
The 3rd image shows how to select the eave

Note: If the Properties Edit Sheet does not automatically display, reset it by checking Auto Display Tool Options on the Window menu.

After you completed the roof (you can use a gable roof in the Roofing tab) you can develop the walls in the second floor

Hi Joe,

Using the Photoview Power Tool, you can import pictures to be used in liveview. In the plan you will see a line (the "board" where the picture is) and in liveview you will see a background, house, etc --> set the picture dimensions to emulate the house dims--> After you import the picture, you can try different options, as you can see in the images linked below. I started with a picture inserted in the Punch work space and I added (drag and drop) the Punch objects / plants--> trellis, flowers, landscape elements, etc

http://www.punchhelpers.com/exterior4.html
http://www.punchhelpers.com/exterior5.html
http://www.punchhelpers.com/exterior6.html
http://www.punchhelpers.com/exterior7.html
http://www.punchhelpers.com/exterior8.html

Notice that the imported picture, is just a 2d board and you can't modify it after you imported it. You can add elements in front of it, but in liveview, you can't modify the picture

With Punch, the best option i the development of the house with walls, roofs , etc and then you will be able to change materials, colors, etc

Hi All,

I am trying to add a section of cladding as an end section to a gable roof that has a significant amount of overhang. There will be no supporting wall directly underneath. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Many thanks

Noel

Hi Noel,

In your post, you mentioned a gable but in the image I see a half gable, so use one the following instructions:
1 - For Gable walls (green wall in the image attached) => Floor tab => Wall tool => select the gable wall option => set the desired parameters => set the desired elevation using the Elevation bar (outlined in green in the image attached)
2 - For Half Gable walls (blue wall in the image attached) => Floor tab => Wall tool => select the shed (or shed reversed) wall option => set the desired parameters => set the desired elevation using the Elevation bar (outlined in green in the image attached)

Thanks so much Patricia, you saved me hours of time trying to figure this out. It was indeed a full gable that I was trying to create, and your instructions worked perfectly. I normally find the user guide and your pdf book get me to where I need to be, but I was tripped up by not understanding the correct terminology of Gable Wall in this case.

Hi Noel,

You're welcome! (and thank you for buying my eBook) :-)

In my eBook, check the page 54 => you will find several cases of walls that include top gable ends.
