    I have a 10/12 roof with gables. How do you create the boxed return on the gable end? I have used the Hot Sweep to add the fascia but I am left with the opening between my fascia and soffit. Any suggestions? Where do I start?

    I have included an example revit file of my problem.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    This may help - from CZoog's 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.

    I just create an in-place family sweep. That fills the triangle of space you need to fill.

    adegnan,

    Could you post the Sweep? I am interested in how the sweep works. Do you use the plane of fascia or do you use the soffit to sweep from. If you could post the family it would greatly help in creating my own.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    I pick the roof eave. Then I switch to an elevation view and sketch the profile that I need.

    In this example the geometry is not joined but for the level of detail on these drawings I didn't need to bother. A simple addition job.

    I love being able to model roof conditions accurately!!! It makes framing so much easier.

    I was wondering how good you all have found Revit to be with traditional residential design. I would like to have a product that I can use to create a design with traditional elements such as corner boards, facias, soffit returns of various styles etc. Then it would be great to be able modify the house a bit for another client etc. I am talking about production housing more than one off highly custom.

    I looked at Softplan and was really impressed with the one click inclusion of these traditional elements for nearly automatic detailed sections and elevations.

    Any advice?
