Hi All,

We're working on a project with a butterfly roof (see image 1) and are finding it impossible to create a roof by extrusion with square cut rafter ends. Normally I would use a roof by footprint, but since our roof pitch varies depending on the width of the building, the roof by extrusion would save us an awful lot of slope calculation and other inaccuracies. I've tried to fix this by setting the facia depth to match the roof thickness (this works perfectly in a roof by footprint) but it remains plumb cut (see image 2).  

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I know this is super old, but any update on how to do this?  I too am looking at how to get this to be a square cut?  We have a curved barrel roof and it's showing a vertical fascia (plumb cut), when I want it to be square to the curve.

 

working in Revit 2017.

 

Thanks,

Lorne

I don't think thats going to happen automatically. You could include an in-place void.

It's working fine here (see pic), unless I totally misunderstood your question.

That's weird.  Mine won't do that.  But the void worked fine for this project.  I don't want to spend too much time troubleshooting!

 

Thanks,

Lorne
