There are many small architectural details that can make a schematic form to…begin to take shape and allow your design intent to really show through.…And one such detail is the soffit conditions at the edge of the roofs.…So I'm in a file here called Soffits, and if we look around, you can see that…I've already done several of the conditions.…But if you have a roof like this, it looks okay, but in a lot of cases it…really makes a different kind of a return here. And I've got this little box…condition right here.…This is a little bit more common situation that you'll see a lot of time.…
Now it's not to say that this isn't a valid condition--it certainly can be--but…that one is easy to achieve because Revit gives us that automatically.…This is a little bit more challenging because we have to be clever about how we achieve it.…If you look at the Roof tool, we have a couple of different options here. There…is actually a Roof Soffit tool.…I'm not particularly fond of this though, because it just creates a flat…
