Im having issues with pitched roof edges.  We do traditional architecture and when we show a gabled roof edge we ony want to show the flashing sometimes - say 4", but when I make a roof with a 12" rafter + the 5/8" sheathing I get all 12 5/8" showing on the edge of the building in elevation.

 How can I get the roof to extend up to within 4" of the roof top even though the thickness of the roof family is 12 5/8"?

If I understand correctly:

  1. Go to your roof instance properties,
  2. In Construction section change the Rafter Cut to "Two Cut - Plumb"
  3. Set the Fascia Depth to 4"
  4. Select OK

This should give you the desired result.

HTH.

this only helps with the eave side of the roof not the gable end.  The gable end is still full height.

I just do two roofs-

1 the right visual thickness on top and overhanging the walls, 

2 sitting under and in between the walls the right construction thickness.

otherwise i guess you could use some kind of edge profile

We'll typically model the framing and our roof normally just consists of sheeting (and sometimes furring channels)
