Hi folks, I’ve been designing a garden shed in Sketchup.
I’ve copied and rotated a vertical member so that it becomes horizontal (well, it’s a sloping roof so about 3 in 12), and laid it across the top of my shed as a roof rafter.
The problem is, although I’ve located one end corner flush against the top of my top plate, the other end isn’t flush with the end of the opposite wall. It’s as if Sketchup has decided to just add a couple of degrees to the angle of the rafter so it’s toed out against the wall.
Everything lined up fine previously so there’s no error in the squareness of the model, it’s only now I’ve decided to change the pitch and changed the height of my top plate on one side that Sketchup has apparently decided my building isn’t square anymore.
Has anybody else encountered this bug and can advise? Currently, I can’t see any way forward but to scrap the whole thing and start again. With a dozen hours invested so far, I’d rather not have to do that.
