Hi Friends,

I am trying to create a pitch roof where the eave is not overhanging. In construction it should be a wood truss roof where the eave finishes the same level as the internal ceiling level. I can't seem to locate where I can customise a roof to have a soffited eave.

Help is always appreciated.

Not entirely at home with all english building terms, but if I do a google search with some images, I think I would model the fascia and such seperately.

If you need two different composites for the roof, just draw two roofs and use the Merge Elements command to make in to 'one' roof again in terms of connections and floorplan / section display.
