Angles soffits for under gable trim

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I can't seem to be able to figure out how to get a soffit angled to fit under the 2 peaks on the right front of the attached image. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi Keith, it looks okay to me.  Something is missing?  Can you better explain what you want to add?  A photo might help.

I need to get a second layer of rake trim below the existing one. It will be the 8" which automatically forms when you build the roof & trim. I need a secondary set of trim beneath that in a 6" for a total of 14" rake trim. .I hope that explains it better?

Yeah without a photo or something I'm really not understanding what you want to do.  You want to increase the roof overhang beyond the wall another 8"?

Post a photo and circle the area your referencing,  Also attach a copy of the plan so you can be further assisted.  Make sure your plan is closed on your computer before you post it.

Okay underatanding a little better now.  After placing a soffit you can check "Sloped Soffit" in its properties to make it go up/down inclines.  Maybe that helps?

Thank you. I have been trying w/the sloped soffits & I can't seem to get it to make sense. I tried to understand the reference manual to no avail.

Place a soffit under the roof soffit -- not close, just in the area.

 

Take an elevation view.

 

Open the soffit and check Sloped Soffit.

 

You will likely need to rotate it in plan view to get the slope going in the correct direction.

 

Back in elevation, resize it -- no need to be exact yet.

 

Now open it and check Place Under Roof.

 

Back in elevation, it should now match the slope of the roof, and you can resize it to its final dimensions.

 

Copy it, reflect about the center of the gable to get the other side.

 

Copy both, paste to the other gable. Adjust as needed.

 

Sample plan attached.
