Hi, I'm a newcomer to revit and have a roofing problem. Please see the attached picture.
Actually, I have two questions:
1. I tried to create the full roof from a single footprint, however revit didn't handle the section the squared off section on the grey roof properly, so I created a separate (blue) roof. How can I get these two roofs to merge seemlessly (not just overlap), such that cathedral ceilings underneath will be accurate?
2. My walls are attached to the roof. Where the plain pink wall forms a corner near the roof join, the inside face of the wall is exposed and won't show the face colour as technically it is the inside of the corner being shown as a grey strip extending from the lower roof segment up to the higher roof segment. How do I fix the material settings for this little bit?
Solved! Go to Solution.
1. Select the Roof > Join/Un join Roof>select the edge of the roof you want to join and then the face of the other roof whith which to join.....If this does not work ,you can do the following steps :
2.Select the wall (better use a Plan View , but you can in axonometric 3d view ,too) > Wall Joins> if yaou hover with the mouse over th small rectanglee intersection of the walls a small rectangle appears - click to choose the corner you want>change in Cofiguration from Butt to Miter
Constantin - thankyou for your reply.
The wall joins worked well - I ended up redrawing that part of the wall so that the butt end was facing the direction I needed the face, but I fixed up some other corners using the mitre as suggested. So that issue is solved now.
I'm still having trouble with the roof unfortunately. I tried extending the roof, however, I wasn't able to join/intersect one roof segment with the other. They seem to align properly, however revit just wouldn't let me select the second roof to complete the operation. Any more hints?
I've attached some images as it is at the moment. The top face of the roof is exactly how I want it (In this version I used the join roof command as suggested) , however you can see from the wireframe views that there is a section of the left hand roof that projects under the right hand roof. It is this projecting section that I wish to delete.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
In order to obtain this:
Fantatic instructions there Constantin - thankyou. That all makes sense.
One remaining question for you: In your image 147, are you able to delete the section of the original roof which is now overshadowed by the new section of roof? In other words - I only want to keep the parts of the combined roof which see the sun and I also wish to have a simple join between the two roofs on the underside?
How would you go about those final steps of deleting the unwanted section (NE corner) of original roof in image 147B ?
there are two ways :
Thankyou for your detailed methodologies - very helpful !
Yes, I think the second method is what I'm after, although I had anticipated that the 'join roof' tool would've been able to cleanup the underside surface, just like it does with the top surface, automatically.
thanks for your help
