Is there a simple way to get a wall trim from a profile at the top of an attatched wall under an eave? A lot of our commercial buildings have molded cornices and applied trim, and there has to be a way to do a wall sweep on an angle, right? Please see attatched file for a jpeg of a sketchup version of what I want to do. Thanks for any advice or help. Ruth

A couple methods I'm aware of, 1) If it's an exterior application you can use the facia sweep tool and use the horizontal and vertical offset parameters to set it under the soffit up against the wall. 2) You can create an in place sweep using the wall face as the working plane.

I've been using the second method because the first method works well for only one side of the roof at a time, when I try to turn the corner with the offsets, the part of the trim that is supposed to be on the wall projects out under the roof, giving me a criss cross trim effect at the corners. Is there anyway to give it yet another offset so that only part of that roof fascia goes to the edge of the roof? Do I need to use two separate fascia's to get that effect?

If you are wanting to wrap around corners try a continuous sweep using Pick Path, select the wall face edges and create a small horizontal return section onto the gable side as attached. I created the small horizontal section by making the corner condition to pick the side edge of wall then used the trim tool to connect the gable line to the short horizontal line. This attachment shows the path sketch lines.
