I have a nearly completed residential project with a semi complex hip roof with a 6:12 pitch. The client just called me and asked me to change the pitch to 6 1/2:12. I thought I could just select the roof(s) either all together or one at a time and just change the pitch in properties and be done with it. I've tried both ways and I get an error every time that "the roof cannot be joined" when I select "unjoin elements" I get "Can't make roof footprint." The footprint shouldn't change with a pitch change?? I thought this was supposed to be one of the great benefits of BIM. Easy to make changes and changes made in one view are effected in all views. Anyway, is there an easy way to do this or do I have to give my client CPR when he gets the bill for my time for re-drawing the entire roof?
P.S tried to upload dwfx but got "invalid file"
