How do I show exposed rafter tails in 3D?

Exposed Rafter Tails involves several steps once the roof has been added.
1) Auto Stick frame the roof. Go to Draw, Framing Auto Stick Frame and click inside your roof. Framing will be added to the roof.
2) Erase the sub-fascia. This is board that is added and follows the perimeter of the roof. Do a Cleanup, Ctrl + C. This will extend the rafters to the edge of the roof and eliminate the gap that was left when the sub-fascia was removed.
3) Edit the roof edge and uncheck Soffit. This will show a fascia but no soffit, thereby exposing the underside of the rafter but not the end. To expose the ends as well, uncheck Fascia.
4) When you generate the 3D, select Roof Framing from the Extraction Options menu.
