I am trying to get my roof to show the slope of the tapered insulation layout. See RoofSlopes.png
This is done with lines currently. When I try to modify the sub elements to get the look I get a bunch of lines that aren't needed and can't seem to remove them. See RevitRoofSlopes.png
Does anyone have success using the modify sub-elements tool for Roofs? Any insight you can share please?
The Wiki help shows rectangles and squares, not every roof has that shape.
Thanks for the help.
Hi C-man, it depends on what you exactly are looking for. Those extra lines that make triangular areas tells you that you have different slopes. To get one big slope you have to adjust the height of the nodes. There are anyhow certain geometrical facts you just have to take into consideration.
You can also fake a little by using Linework Tool; Invisible Line to hide those extra lines but I wouldn't recommend it.
A planar surface is determined by 3 points. The 4-th point has a lot of chances to be non coplanar. In this case a second plane will be generate and an intersection line will appear between the planes.
If you want the forth point to be included in the first plane and the separtion line not to appear, then you can allign this point in a section parralel with the maximum slope angle of the plane...look at Image 2 and 3...
Looks difficult ?.... it's nothing but geometry of plans...and you have to solve it correctly....
