    Square Cut Fascia

    Revit has to be able to do this. I have a gable roof with a built up fascia. It puts it on correctly, but it's plumb. I need it square to the roof slope. How do I do this?

    I saw the fascia profile has an angle parameter, but that would also change it on the gable ends, right? On those 2 ends, plumb is correct.

    Couldn't you create a new fascia type? and change the angle on that one? or maybe a new profile for it?

      I thought of that, but if I change the angle on the profile, then the gable ends would have the fascia angle inward. It all needs to be perpendicular to whatever roof slope it's on. If I do 2 separate profiles, they won't miter (at least I don't think they will). There has to be a way....

        Did you change the Roof Type Properties to Two Cut Square? Mine work fine...

          Yeah, that's the first thing I did and it made the angle at the eave flat. So, the fascia was turned flat like a floor! lol
          That's definately not right. But, based on your post, I must have done something wrong. Hard to believe, I know.........:laugh:

          I'll try it again.

            I figured it out. Just make sure the fascia depth in the properties (just under where you select the rafter cut) matches the thickness of your roof. :thumbsup:

                Okay, 2.5 years later and I'm having the same issue once again :banghead: . The two attached roofs will not play nicely. They are simple enough, so I don't know why it refuses to let the 2 cut square work. Any ideas? I have other roofs in the project and they all work fine.

                  edit the sketch and use the Align eaves button to make sure all your eaves are at the same height (once you select Align Eaves, then pick Adjust Height). Once all eaves are same height, finish sketch and then select roof and change to 2 cut square in Properties. I just tried it on both roofs from your attachment and it worked.

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