Roof Object Cut-outs leave odd shape

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a roof with a wide dormer. I would rather not use the dormer tool so I can try different dormer roof profiles, so am trying to edit the roof object and clip the surface (edit group/paste a rectangle in place/exit group). It leaves this odd triangular shape floating around like a ghost of an eave. Any ideas?

I can't put an image in this post, but could send it if you need to see it.

FYI, spoke with tech support (same day!). The issue is using the soffit accessory. Even with a cut out all the way to the roof edge, it will draw the "ghost" soffit across the cut-out area.

Suggestion: make the roof without the soffit accessory, draw it in the elevations. If you need it in a model, draw a triangle in a front view and extrude it back the depth of the overhang.
