Rooflights in a Curved Roof

Hi,

 

Just wondering how i would go about inserting rooflights in this curved roof.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

The Skylight Window family just drops in like it would in a wall---simple as that!

 

Family attached.

I created the roof by extrusion and a void to cut out excess.

 

Thanks

You can use a Window Family--Skylight, which comes OOTB (out of the box) meaning standard in the Revit Library.

 

I just created a test project with a curved roof by extrusion and placed the skylights--no problem.

 

see attached image.

Thanks for the quick response.

 

I take it you just create vertical openings in the roof?

 

How easy is it to place the rooflights in the roof.

Sorry a small problem, it is not allowing me to insert rooflights, saying it cannot cut instances. 

 

How do i place them.
