Revit 2008

I have yet to do a flat roof in Revit and I'm trying to set up a very thorough template for my office.  Are people modeling everything (tapered insulation, drains, rooftop units, etc)?  I know that it's usually best to model everything, but it seems as if there aren't a whole lot of roof equipment families.  We do K-12 education so the roos can get rather large with a lot of equipment, drains, pipe vents etc.  I just want to do the right thing.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance!

I haven't found the need to get super detailed with flat roofs. I use mostly drafting items to represent tapered insulation, crickets, etc. I usually model roof equipment but stay pretty generic on those items.

Thanks James.  That's what I was thinking.  As cool as the modeling is, we sometimes have to draw the line (no pun intended) between modeling everything and drafting.

I agree with James.  Why model tapered insulation when you never can really see it.  Slopes are just too low. 

 

Like James,  we do model very generic rooftop HVAC so we know the visual impact at the ground level.  We also have 3d roof drains that we spot. 

 

We hope to have our engineers on-line in REVIT so we will have the rest of the HVAC & plumbing but until then, most of this doesn't get modeled by us.
