Hip Rafters on equal pitch roofs will align at a 45 degree angle from all four corners reguardless of hip rafter pitch.

Hip drop in the plumb line dimension is required here and on our example of 4x12 pitch it should be lowered by 3/16". This will allow the top corners of the hip rafter to be level with the top of the common rafters.

Even though the hip rafter is setting on a perfect 45 degree angle the side cut or cheek cut angles differ slightly. We'll get into that later on.
