    Default still having a problem.....dormer opening

    My dormer roof and main roof are joined. Toggeling between views : attic plan, roof plan, 3d. ( I have to pick the line where the dormer and main roof meet in the 3-d view, all other surfaces to cut with can be selected in either roof plan or attic plan). When i have all the cutting surfaces selected i perfom the cut and get a warning that there is a circular reference detected and no cut is perfomed.

    any ideas?

    what could be the circular reference?

    You should be able to do a dormer roof cut in the 3d view only. Select the main roof to be cut then select the 3 dormer "walls" (not lines) and the dormer roof, corner trim (join) the sketch lines together and hit finish, that is all their is to it.

    In the future, it is best to reply to your original post rather than start a new post on the same subject.
