so i have a client that wants to use corigated steel, or aluminum as a siding feature, that sticks out about 2" past the stucco. i figured the best way to accomplish this is to create a mass, and apply a finish to them. well, it worked great, but now i have another problem. as you can see in the picture the masses are sticking through the roof. i am hoping that there is an easy way to edit these to follow the bottom of the roof pitch.

anyone have any ideas? they are greatly appreciated

Tim

I think instead of Mass you can use a wall with built-in reveal/sweep. Just edit the wall profile to shape it accdgly.

Correction! you don't need to use built-in sweep/reveal. See attached. Actually, I just use a square profile but you can use a semi-circle or a circular profile to cut you wall. Then a wall can be attached to thr roof.
