So I had figured this out once before but now i can't remember how.

I have a flat roof that has been attached to beams at different heights to create the slope.

In this roof I have roof drain models that cut into the insulation and at my valleys I have drain 2 feet off the centerline of the beam.

Now my problem is that once I create my individual crickets with a variable thickness insulation the overall thickness protrudes through my roof down into my building.

I am trying to find a clever sequence to create a roof system that can be warped on the top and the bottom of the element.

any ideas?

Right after I posted this I saw the similar thread, with no answers.

I believe I am S.O.L. on that one eh?

sol on modifying the top and bottom of a roof system family I believe.  The only solution (was discussed as floors before too, try a search) was to make an in place family.  Maybe someone has a new solution they could share.

So you require points edits that are different to both the top of the roof and the bottom?  Yes?

Do it as two roofs, overlap them in the centre and join geometry.  I've had success doing this.  That is, if that's what your asking for?

Here is an image of the top and bottom of the roof.

You can see the purple on the underside of the roof deck is the excess insulation i would like to attach to the top of the roof deck.

I got this all resolved, for whatever reason in this project when creating an in-place family I had to make sure to put it into roofs. Then i was able to just create voids under the crickets, thus leaving me a roof that can slope both on top and bottom.
