Hi. I'm at a loss. I've been trying to figure out how to do shape editing on a roof on Revit LT 2014 for the last few days.
All I want to do is have a pitched roof meet a flat roof. What I mean is, imagine taking a half of a pyramid shape and laying it down on a flat roof and joining it. I figured out how to make a dormer of sorts with it being triangular in plan but not being able to pull down that vertex onto the flat roof.
I work at home at a small business and I really don't know who to ask or how to ask anyone about this question.
Is it because Revit LT is not capable of doing such geomeries? Is Revit able to? I would think?
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I work in Revit 2014 ...I hope that LT works the same...
Make a second roof , as in the attached recording and use Join Roofs
Wow, Thanks. That was helpful in making the roof, for sure. Unfortunately, I am having trouble joining them. The error message I get is part of the roof to be joined misses the target face. Do you know what this means and what I should do about it?
select first the border of the main roof (1) and then the face of the second roof to join to the first...
Thanks Constantin. Very helpful. I had to undo some joining that I had inadvertantly done before it would accept the correct way you had stated.
I appreciate it! You've saved me from a lot more headache and strain!
