Not sure which Home Designer product you're using.  Do you have a triangle shape available in the Shapes Library?

A wedge from the library can be sized in 3 directions. 


 


Could you post a picture of what you are trying to model?

Are you perhaps thinking of creating a triangular shaped soffit like is described in this earlier thread?
