Fascia with Create Roof command


Recommended Posts

After setting the dimensions of the fascia in the dialog box, how do I adjust the height of the fascia relative to the roof plane?  Right now it puts it right in the middle of the middle component.  I can change the bearing height of the roof to get the fascia where I want it, but that seems....not right.

Hi what i would do is to create a profile fascia and gutter and extrude along path.

Remember the profile extrudes down the centre of the profile so you move the profile NOT the line. See Attached.

Thanks Alan. Yes I'm used to doing it that way but I thought since my roof was a very conventional one, I could use the Create Roof command and see if the fascia option would make it easier to create a fascia.  My results are less than desirable so I was wondering what I was doing wrong.

@MKingsley - you're not doing anything wrong...the Fascia setting just doesn't have enough parameters to let you control its height.  I believe this has been a long-standing wish...I'll create an "Enhancement Request" anyway...
