Need Help Drawing Modern Wide Fascia Facade

Recommended Posts

I am trying to draw a modern wide fascia facade. In the attached image you see what I would like the final look to be. In this shot I roughly created the look using solid soffit blocks to mimic the look. Can anyone tell me how to create this aesthetic within the program? The verticals are no problem of course, but the horizontal peak sections are what have me stumped. I am using Home Designer Pro 2019 Build 20.3.0.54x64. Appreciate the help!

I see you said Pro, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

What's wrong with what you have now? That is, what do you want that is different than what you show?

Since I am new to the program one thing is that I am having a hard time getting all the soffit edges to align perfectly without a visible seam line. It "looks" ok aside from the alignment issues, but I assume that that would not be the way to show it in a real plan to detail how it would be created in actual construction.

That's my question. To advise on how to model something, we need to understand what you want to model.

 

Do you have pictures of the actual building, or a similar one you could post?

Build the object, walls and fascia/pelmet,  as one element in Sketchup - and import it.

Sketchup seems to have been offered as advice before with tricky contemporary designer elements.

Or - just be content with a couple of seems as you have now?

It looks great. imo
