Custom roof edge

Hello! 

I`m struggling to find if there is a way to make roof edge in shape like I have drawn in attached image. I can see that Archicad offers different types of roof edges but I need a different one. Please see attached image.

That is not one of the standard edge types that you can choose.

One way to achieve that is to use the vertical edge and use a slab at the correct level for a Solid Element Operation to cut away the bottom.

Put the slab in a hidden layer - unless you have an eave lining at that level, then you can use that for the SEO instead.

This is probably not the answer you were looking for, but you could also make a PROFILE that fits on the PERPENDICULAR cut end of the roof....

If your roof is a single pitch and is rectangular, you could also probably use a rafter object?
