Revit is amazingly easy to use when it comes to putting gutter sweeps on roofs.  THENNNNNNNNNNNNN, the only way, that I have found, to have the elevation or rendering to "look right" is to manually create an end to that gutter profile and to hang it in the air at the ends of the gutters.  Is there not some way to "return" the gutter at the ends?  Anyone?

are you looking for a cap or to do a 90 and have the gutter on the face of the fascia?

 

a cap would be a simple family extrusion, but I think you're talking about returning it. I have used a model line before to attach fascia and gutters to. the easiest way I have found to do that is to create a temporary level at the height of your gutter placement. then go into plan view, select line, select the temp level for elevation, then use the pick command and pick the face of the fascia.

They just float in the air at the end of the gutter runs.  Then when walls move, they look fine in elevations of the end and they are thin enough that you don't see them in elevations of the sides of the caps.  It is kind of a crude way to end a gutter that went down and mitered so easily.  I am not looking for an outside corner return at the end of the gutters which, if I understood your other suggestion correctly, would be the other option.  Probably the easiest solution would be to make the gutter solid but then you have to fix the wall sections

all I was thinking of is a generic end cap.
