This one's driving me bonkers. I'm trying to create a soffit that will slope up to a certain point then go flat from there. The slope arrow greys out after I use one slope arrow and no matter the length it always slopes the entire soffit system. I drew a line and split it, attached the slope fromwhere I want to start, gave it a slope (also tried the start and end thing) and now I can't do anything with it.

 

I tried with a floor system, same deal. I tried with a roof system and could pick 2 slope arrows, but couldn't get a flat roof for some reason.

 

Any suggestions?

Have you tried creating an in place soffit. Try using extrusions or blends.

Maybe I should be asking a different question.

 

What I'm trying to accomplish is fascia around my roof line. This one has got me stumped. Has anyone done a similar roof style and how does it come out. My thought process is that it doesn't quite work. It looks good on elevations, but in the real world, something is wrong here.

Definitely looks like you are going to need to do some in-place clean up work to get that intersection to work appropriately.

 

Remember you can grab the end points of your fascia segments and drag them as necessary to shorten or extend them...

 

I'd drag them a way then create and inplace roof fascia to fill in the gaps and do a join geometry to clean it up completely...

 

HTH.

TY puzzle and Mr. Spot. I ended up creating an in place generic model like you suggested. Worked rather easily after I got into it. It is quite an odd situation in that corner.

Why does it say that my ramp has no slope when it does for a spot slope?
