I am trying to model a traditional oak framed bay on a new house I am working on. I have attached some images to help me describe the problem.

I want to model the eaves and verge accurately, so I am using the 'two roof' method to enable me to have the tile layer project over the fascia (as I understand that the parts feature does not exist in LT and does not work on dual pitch roofs, rendering it vitually useless for roofs to my mind). The eaves will be open, with the rafter tails exposed. I have modelled these as a parametric family to enable them to be adjusted for different roof pitches, rafter section sizes, lengths, etc. and arrayed them along my eaves.

Now the problem I have is with my verge rafter (barge board), which I have modelled as a fascia. I want this to have the same 'two cut plumb' profile as my rafter tails, but it does not appear that there is an option for achieving this with a fascia, as there is for a roof - you only get the option of horizontal, vertical or square. I have achieved the desired result using a very messy workaround (see second image), using three separate fascias with different profiles. I'm sure there must be a better way than this - any ideas? This workaround is very time consuming. I suppose an alternative, if one wanted to create a custom shaped barge board, would be to model it as its own component family.

Many thanks.

You said you made a parametric rafter family, so why don't you make the fascia nested in your family?

or you can use in-place void to cut the edge of fascia(or any system families you want)

hope it helps.


want more?

Thanks dingo. The void idea is certainly a better workaround than mine, but it is still a bit of a faff for something that should be built into the software, I feel.
