A real roof is complex. More than you might think from just looking at it. But apart from gables and hips, its the huge variety of how to construct the roof, how that integrates to the walls and ceilings and then there are the endless configurations of eaves, rakes, corners of the rakes and eaves. There must be a better way to make and manage roofs that a simple sloped slab. Set the rake at 6" and the eave will not be 6" on a single thickness roof slab.

But! A simple option to have the bottom of the eave edge clipped to match the roof slab thickness, no matter what the slope is, would go a long way in being much better as a tool.
