Looking for some examples of what you guys want this information to look like. If you can create an image that shows the information you want and where you want to see it that would be helpful.

 

Should it exist on a roof plan or on an elevation view etc ? ...

 

How would you like it represented ?...

When I need it, I put it on the front elevation or the cross section.

Here's what I'd love to see on the "Roof" Mode.   Thoughts?

My personal preference would be on the roof plan too. If it's on the elevations or section, then they've already had to be generated and it's effectively too late ... we can measure it ourselves at that point.

 

I'd like to see it labelled on the ridge and mid point of the roof on the roof plan the same way the plate height is labelled, and in the same section with the plate heights in roof mode.

 

TIP: For everyone ... Turn on plate height display in the roof section of roof mode.

Thanks guys.

 

Could you please provide an example of how you would expect the labels to appear on the roof plan Keith?

Something like this would suffice for me.

Yes we actually have measurements to the ridge, mean and eave in some towns around here. It is also measured either from average grade, finished floor, curb or crown of road. I currently use an Excel spreadsheet that I can just punch the numbers in for it to do all the calculations for me but this would be a welcomed feature.
