Have you and the customer "signed" yet?
Simply put, rise, run and diagonal. run being 16"
Put the pitch in the calculator first, 4/12 5/12 or whatever.
16 inch run, then hit rise. It will tell you how much it rises in 16"
Then hit diagonal and it will give you the length of the stud at the top plate.
You'll need to write each stud length on paper.
Making a cut list.
You'll need to add each rise to your original stud height, for example. Your first stud may be 92-1/4"
Keep adding the rise to your starting point. My starting point example was 92-1/4"
The only problem with that Mike, is that the walls do not behave like rake walls.
Their pitch isn’t tied to roof pitch and variable.
Although...by just looking at the prints quickly, it seems that some are identical, in that they match each other.....but again, not the roof pitch. (I think....I’m out at the farm and the prints are in the office.)
Can I enter a specific value for pitch...say 11.26 degrees into the CMaster and generate the stud heights?
That....would be a huge time saver.

Is this the build you were going to record with your drone?
Can we get videos of you guys scratching your heads?
It's just some basic trig and Pythagorean math. Maybe some mental gymnastics easy peasy. :laughing:Like I said....Hire Warren.
That's what I would do.....:laughing:T-Wax @#34 Looks like you're 95% there, But, the roof center(ridge) is aways from the line you drew... and the Roof is "rolled" over the ridge area ~ 2 feet, to add to the cost of the roof framing on every one...
One could "balloon" frame the studs temporarily, using a sloped ledger board to set the lower end of the rafters on, then cutting the studs to fit under the roof deck, having erected a temp ridge a the 'Missing' ridge height, chase the rafter down a jackline to intersect the off grid wall line.
Hopefully all the roofs spring from a constant wall height at the low point? 8-9' aff?
You could frame this in big tin shed, and haul out the rooms on medium sized trailer.
Good luck, keep posting as the wheel turns please:thumbsup:
