Corner Trim

I am curious if anyone has found any particularly good way of adding exterior vertical corner trim to a model, say, 2x6 or 2x8 wrapped around a corner.

I would just make a corner trim family and make an extrusion the height and size you need. You could then add a detail component to the family if you wanted it to show a wood hatch, etc. for a plan section detail.

Hosted Wall Sweeps from the Model tab of the Design Bar allow you to have horizontal and vertical sweeps. I have used this tool as well as creating a corner board family as recommended by the other posts.

You could also create an in-place family for this corner board condition if you do not want to create a new family (RFA file).

I did the same thing as Mel Persin suggested. I created a parametric profile, and use it as a vertical wall sweep. You have to watch that you are snapping the sweep to the end of the wall, and if you change the exterior finish thickness, the sweeps can get deleted. There is also a flip profile symbol that allows you to flip the profile so that it is facing the correct direction after being placed. I also found that you should place the sweeps one corner at a time.
