I attach a photo of what I am trying to achieve. My client want the barge boards of an extension to be scalloped. Perhaps not similair to the photo but same principal. I know that to get a fascia or barge board you go to  Modelling, Host sweep and then roof fascia. But this gives a rectangular uniform shape. I have scratched my head till it hurts. Any idea anyone?

regards

Mark

The Trick is to make a Void family. See attached file.

Create an In place family. It must be the same type as the part you want to cut. (roof)

Draw Voids in the shape you want removed.

Use the cut geometry tool to remove the Void from the part.

Voids can be very hard to use. They are hard to select, hard to find, and don't always work. Ultimatly you might want to make a Generic Family Roof based that does the same thing. Up to you..

Enjoy...

Alternatively you could create the barge board by just extruding the outline shape and then applying a sweep to create the profiled edge.  The finial could be created in the same in place family, as could the profiled cornice at the top of the barge board.

Thanks,

I am playing around now.

Thank you very much. I understand both thoughts.
