    Gutter on non-perpendicular Roof Edge

    I have been modelling some roofs with gutters, and have come across the limitation of not being able to assign a gutter to an edge that isnt perpendicular to a roof fall

    I have tried modelling the roof a number of ways, by defining the slope at the edge, using a slop arrow etc. to no avail

    But I did find that I can assign a fascia to these edges, so I have created a fascia profile which is the same as my box gutter profile. Everything seems to work ok, I understand that it works differently and wont neccesarily place the box gutter with vertical edges correctly, but I am more concerned with the gutters looking consistent in plan without resorting to filled regions (as I hatch them on my roof plan) and I dont want to model any in place families etc.

    My question is this workflow OK, and will I run into any problems down the track?

    If you mean you want the gutter to "fall" along with the fascia, sketch "as a fascia profile"the gutter profile in with the fascia profile all in one. Even works on curved extruded roofs

      Yes similar to the image above, but the entire edge of the roof is angled to the fall direction (see image)

      The reason I ask about whether this workflow is OK, is because playing around with reloading a new profile family as a fascia and assigning to a Fascia I crashed my session of Revit

        can't you just use "create" and make a sweep
        life's good :wine:

          Not sure why the crash occurred, but I would agree with Mark - Fascia with gutter is the way I would try in the first instance. Attached is the family I typically use.

            Create "inplace sweep" pick roof lines as path. I used my fascia-gutter profile, or draw your own. I only use "pitch" not slope arrow but shouldn't be the problem though.

              I have just been trying to create a simple box gutter that obeys everything revit by creating it as a gutter profile and then assigning it along a model line, that has been drawn at a slope because I wanted to at least include that much modelling when it comes to the section across the roof. BUT no, you can't sweep a gutter along anything other than level. I came across this thread, and this is a good workaround, not for my case but a good one anyway for normal eaves gutters.
              Can anybody give me any reason at all why revit gutter profiles cannot travel down any slope? IMO this sort of restriction is what can make this program ever so slightly annoying. :banghead:
              In my case I have created a profile under plumbing and swept it along the model line, at least it lives in a correct area, but I do get frustrated at the above problem when it comes to simple eaves gutters.
