Fascia Enhancements

Ok I ended up creating all the gutters and facias using the "extrude along path" method. However I find this workflow very manual, finicky, and very time consuming, and therefore really not desirable.  As a single practitioner, time is a precious resource.


Since the first post, I've noticed that this feature has been asked for for many years. Why It hasn't been implemented, I don't know.


But I do have a second idea that I believe could work just as well. It could also work for other disciplines for other purposes. 


It would be a new modeling function called "extrude along picked edge". A profile could be drawn or picked from the resource manager. If picked from the resource manager as a 2d symbol, it's insertion point would be used as the origin for the extrusion. when implemented, one would pick the profile or profile symbol, and then pick a series of edges along a model for the extrusion. If the new path could be associated with the picked edges, the extrusion would adjust position as changes are made to the hose object. A flip x axis and flip y axis option for the profile would be needed for adjustments if the extrusion needed to be reversed along the path.


combined with a shell option this could work great for metal wall copings. This would also work great for curbs, wall trim, and ect...
