Have you tried shaping the edge of a flat roof with the editing tools?

The last time I did that sort of thing I created a custom stepped molding profile to emulate the stepped eaves and applied it to the roof edges of the home, to emulate your photo, would be more complicated but as far as I know, can be done with patience.

Hi, 566043364.

 

Try this.  Out in open space, no walls, no nothing, draw a roof plane.  Take that roof plane, the rectangle, select any edge, and add line breaks (keying the number "3" activates the break tool), then drag breaks around to edit the shape.

 

See the pic attached here.

 

And consider editing your profile here at the forum so we know your name.  Very few of us have digital names.  While you are at it, create a signature line that displays details about your Chief software, and the hardware you use to run it.
