I have a "flat" roof with a pitch of 1/4"/foot. It connects to a brick wall with just a simple edge flashing detail. I attach the wall to the roof because I want the top of the wall to slope as the roof slopes. Now I see the entire thickness of the roof with the brick wall ending at the underside. So, I change the roof edges to "extend into wall (to core)." That extends the brick up past the thickness of the roof as it should, but now the top of the brick does not slope. I can put a deep fascia (deep enough to cover the roof thickness) on the roof and cover the problem, but the reality is that the flashing would only be 4-6" high, and the roof is over 12" thick. Is the best solution to add a second roof representing the membrane and use that as the attachment for my walls? The then much thinner roof edge can be covered with the flashing fascia....

It sounds like you're puttinh in too much detail into the model. Can't you show this level of detail in a call out? What size is the building, and waht scale will it be on the drawing sheet? If the scale is 1/4 of below don't put the extra time into the model, save it and add it to a 1 1/2 scale detail drawing using lines, etc

quiller, I do agree that I tend to put too much detail into my models. However, in this case, the flashing line in question will appear in multiple elevations as well as in sections. The elevations are only 1/8", but even at that scale, the difference between 4" and 12" is quite noticeable. Isn't part of the point of Revit to model things once correctly so that you don't have to do the same work multiple times? At this point, I have added the second roof and put the fascias onto it. It didn't take too long, and the same information now appears in every drawing, including the perspectives.
