Does anyone know how to create a roof fascia that curves 2 directions?  I haven't been able to do it with the roof fascia tool.  I thought maybe creating a thin roof outbourd of the edge of the roof would be a quick workaround but roofs don't let you include a profile, which I need.  Any ideas?  I'm using Revit 2009.

You can try it with an in-place family-->roof category-->solid sweep.....but as Typhoon said, an image could help better...

The problem with a sweep is that it only lets you create a path in 2D, not 3D. 

 I've attached a revit file for reference.

A sweep can have a 3D path, but only when you use the pick command for the path...
