Revit 2012 - complex roof

532 Views, 5 Replies

Could anyone help me with trying to create a curved roof? I want it to be flat apart from where the sloped walls are, the sloped walls are in-place models.

I thought I could do it using swept blend but i'm a little unsure of how to approach it.

I must warn you I'm a bit of a rookie with Revit.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Create a flat roof by footprint method.

 

Then, along the sloping walls, use "edit points" to conform the roof to the wall profile.

You should be able to click the points, and then type in a new value, in reference to your Level.
