I want to write the following idea in my abstract:

The vast majority of works on building model reconstructions from aerial data mainly focus on roof modelling, but not façade models.

BUT I feel, but in this sentence is breaking the flow of the sentence. In this type of situation, how can we avoid the awkwardness and get a smooth sentence?

How about:

The vast majority of works on building model reconstructions from aerial data mainly focus on roof modelling, [and] not façade models.

or

The vast majority of works on building model reconstructions from aerial data mainly focus on roof modelling, as opposed to façade models.

    Option 1 could work without the and, too: ...focus on roof modelling, not façade models.
