I am trying to create a saw tooth roof that does not follow the typical pattern. It has a slope or diagonal in all three planes. I have not been able to create this with the roof function, nor by creating my own roof family. I can't get the blend property to work properly in profile. The only way I have been able to come close is to model it as a topo defining the 4 points of the roof in terms of elevation. The only problem with this is lack of thickness, as well as probably not being the correct way to do it. Help please, thanks.

Post a screen capture of what you are trying to achieve as i can think of two ways of doing it. One is for very complex falls and the other is quite simple....

well i'm attaching an iso and a plan view. hopefully that will show what i'm trying to do. you will be able to see the topo that i created in both views because of the topo lines in both views. thank you.

Looks quite simple to create using a blend. Make a section that is parallel to the profile. Start an in-place roof family and draw a reference plane at the front and back of where you want your blend to go in plan. Start a solid form-blend and pick the set a workplane button then choose to select by picking and pick the front reference plane as the work plane. YOu will be prompted to go to a view perpendicular to the profile (your previously created section). Draw the two profiles and there you go. You can then go to the plan view and drag the end points to the two reference planes if they're not already. HTH.
