I have tried this so many times I have given up and made simple roof returns like the attached picture simplistic. But, I am tired of not creating this correctly. Ideas are very welcome. Typically, this detail is straight around the perimeter, and then at the gable end, only the ogee continues up the rake.

Can you attach an image of your model so far? Particularly the area where you are having troubles.

1: How it currently is

2. These miters never work

3. The method I have used to fake it.

 

We have many of these buildings on our campus, old and beautiful architecture.

Have you tried using an in place family sweep where you sweep your custom profile along the roof edge? That has worked for me very well in the past.

I would have done all of the trim that basically circles the building as a wall sweep.  I would have used a roof edge for the gable end and an in-place void to cut the ends off to "miter" to the wall sweep. .... Basically, exactly as it would be built.

Check out the image - it is similar to what you are trying to model. this was using in place family and using pick 3d edges for sweep path and then put profile to that path. this does not work for you?
