    Correct hips for roof with different eaves widths

    Hi Guys,

    I am drawing a house but the walls will have 2 different eaves widths - 350 and 450. I cant seem to get the roof to display correctly - i understand that the hips will need to be at 45 degrees but for arguments sake it just needs to be "whatever" it is to work.

    I have got the roof to look something like this but the hip ends dont finish in the corner as i want (see red circles). I have managed to get the hip to finish in the corner of the roof but its stuck on 45 degrees so that means that the hip wont run directly above the corner in the wall.

    any suggestions
    thanks

    You need to select the sketch lines, and adjust the Eave Height, to make it work out even.

          I think you are running into real world (descriptive) geometry limits, not Revit limits. If the roofs have different overhang dimensions, you either have different slopes or different eave heights. Take a look in 3D to see what is really happening.
          Assuming that you don't want your eaves jumping up and down, I think you will need to start tweaking the roof slopes. Think of your roof framers while doing this...
