    Roof cut

    Is it possible to cut a section from a roof as shown in the image? I want to omit the red section.

    Thanks

    yes, model and in-place family void, roof category, and then use cut geometry to cut the void from the roof.

    Thanks Scott, works perfect.

    Procedure for those who are unaware...


    Home/Component [dropdown]/Model In-Place

    Family and Parameters/Family Category - select roofs or whichever type requires a cut
    Provide a name for the void

    Select Extrusion or alternative from Forms
    Draw profile for the extrusion and provide Depth value
    Properties for the extrusion, Identity Data select Void

    Use Cut Geometry tool to cut the void

    You could use Vertical Opening on Home Tab. Same result and a lot quicker

    Looking at the OP image, I┤d say that it could even be achieved by setting the "Rafter Cut" and "Facia Depth" of the Roof to the right values...
