    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

        If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

          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...
