    Anybody have a slick way of doing a trim board at the eave/wall intersection of a residential house? I attempted to use an integral wall sweep, hoping it would follow the slope of the gable end, and the sweep wouldn't "take."

    I've just been using in-place generic families to date. I'm hoping there is a better way.

    Cheers!

    are you talking about rake trim? or a gable end soffit return?

    Anyway here is a file that shows how I do it. and here is an exerpt from my au class:

    Tip #14 Use the roof fascia tool to create additional rake trim

    Select an appropriate profile.

    Pick the gable end of the roof, then

    Set the horizontal offset to “-(depth of overhang)”.

    You also change the miter option to suit different conditions.


    Tip #13 Use a roof soffit to create “pork chops” and other gable end conditions

    You can create various gable end conditions with the roof soffit and fascia tools.

    To create a “pork chop” use the roof soffit tool and the pick roofs, then pick walls option.

    Use the join geometry tool to clean-up the soffit to rake join.
