Can someone please tell me of a way i can make a gutter go down a sloped fascia/roof edge? (i have a raised portico and the roof has no overhang in the entry, but continues with overhang for the rest of the house, therefore making a little slope from 0 overhang down to the 600 overhang) Do i have to create an 'in place family'? If so, how?! It's so frustrating!!

Revits guttering onlyworks on the horizontal, so instead of using Roof>Gutter.... use Roof>Fasica using your gutter profile... Should work fine

Thanks, obviously ill have to go and save my gutter profile in a fascia family so it can be used. Why didnt i think of that? Its not my fault, i blame the fact that im blonde and i wasnt ever trained to use Revit, i just started and learnt as i went... I was trying to use a sweep and change its ref plane to go up the slope but it didnt work. Then i thought i could use a blend and blend it to two different ref planes but that didnt work cos you have to draw it on floor plan. AHH!! Do you have any idea how i could do it that way? For future reference? Thanks again xoxo

Hey MarieCz, Two ways to fly sweeps like that: Have you tried picking the reference plane before you draw the sweep path? Its the best way to position them, you can pick faces of geometry in 3D views and draw the sweep path on that face. Or the second way to specify the path: the 'Pick Path' command. Change to a 3D view and use this to pick the path along edges of your model (like the edge of your roof). This is the only way that I know of to make your sweep path head in three dimensions (like screw threads, window jambs around corners). Having said all that, JSavage is right - fascias are the quickest and easiest way to do gutters like that... Hope this helps!

Why dont you use an existing fascia and just modify its profile? I've done that and i've attached it here as an example. It works ok, but the problem is I haven't yet worked out how to make it clean up where the gutters meet. So does anyone know how to make them join at the meeting points, and how do you get gutters to close up at the ends?

Yeah Im in ... Auckland! Tauranga is real nice though, it sounds like what Brisbine is like without the humidity (330 days of sun every year or something).

VND: Yea i ended up putting a gutter profile as a 'fascia' and using that ontop of the fascia, but then i encountered the same problem as you, they didnt meet up at the ends. So i suggest instead of using the fake gutter or fascia/gutter only on the areas you need, use and fascia and gutter combination on the whole roof as a continuous fascia/gutter. The reason why your gutter corners may not be joining is: if you start doing your gutter and stop for any reason, like you havent clicked in the right place and you have to re-click host sweep again, then it starts a new one. Well, dont do that, if you stop, to continue pick the gutter that you've already done and on the options bar it should say 'Add or remove segments'. Click that and then continue placing the gutter and it should go back to connecting it properly. Also, do you place your fascia and gutter on in floor plan or 3D? I prefer 3D. Hope that helps darl. Hisdirt: Hey babe. Yea... Brisvegas is pretty awesome *tears well up with pride*. Way better than Melbourne! (haha vnd! what do you have to say about that?!) lol... i know. silly me.

Hmmm... interesting, yes didn't occur to me about adding the fascias continually... I'll try it... don't know the place you live... but I think Melbourne is definitely better...!

don't know it but i think I'm a good guesser! I imagine it would be the hot version of Tasmania... only not an island (in the geographic sense).

Omg! Are you implying that we're a bunch of inbreds?! I think you are the deformed one if you can claim not to know that Brisbane is in Queensland, which is only seperated from you, in miserable Melbourne, by NSW!! You'd have to be messing with me right?
