Can this be modeled in Chief?

Recommended Posts

As you can see, the fascia is neither square nor plumb.   And the soffit is dropped, with a blocked-out frieze below.

 

I created the roof with a flat planar roof plane with baseline at wall line (outside face of main layer). Outside that is another roof plane, curved, specified to have the right radius and tangent characteristics.  That roof plane cannot be specified with a boxed soffit.  I tried.  No go.  Maybe it is because it is not "on" the wall, but is outboard of it.

 

It appears as if to get reasonably close to what this is, I will need to do a molding, the shape of it the whole soffit box and the frieze.  The back-cut fascia with the crownmold?  Forgettaboutit.

 

What would you do?

I have done this sort of thing lots of times:

 

You set your roof eaves to plumb.

Over the wall you place your straight roof plane,

Then you manually draw the eaves, manually making them the arc angle you wish

I think that's the way I would approach it.
