    Sloping glazing does not accept a gutter

    I find it strange that you can snap a gutter to a regular roof edge, but if you change the roof type to sloping glazing then you can no longer attach a gutter.

    Or am I missing something perhaps?

    I've not come across any workarounds so far.

    Just seems strange that it does not work.

    You can add a secondary roof for a fascia, and then sweep the gutter. A few more steps, but workable.
    It would be nice to be able to apply the gutter to the sloped glazing roof.

    Just for fun, what happens if you create a normal roof first, apply gutters, and then change it to sloped glazing?

      Nice try - but Revit just deletes the gutter

      Thanks anyway - I just wondered if I was missing something obvious.

        Chances are you'd not fix a gutter direct to an edge mullion anyhow no? I'm by no means an expert, but I've not seen such a thing. And so, if that's the case, it begs the question what would you attach them to, and so prompt the thought maybe there's something more to model first.

          You could also add model lines first, then add the gutter (picking the model lines). That's how I do E.I.F.S. cornice around my buildings, since the parapet covers the roof edge, I can't pick the roof.

            Thanks.

            I suppose you can side fix brackets for the gutter to the rafters under the gasketed glazing system or you can have a gutter board running under the glazing oversail to fix the gutter brackets to.

            For the moment I just swept a gutter profile along a picked edge of the glazing oversail (the glass top edge of double glazing units always oversails the timber support under) and it's near enough for now.

              One day, while working on some high-res renders, I got really fed up with the missing End Caps and Brackets when using the Gutter tool, so instead I made the attached LineBased family...
