I have followed the steps in creating  standing seam metal roof by changing the roof type to sloped glazing and then adding the curtain grid lines and so on......

I now have a roof that i created as a flat roof and added points to pull the slope into the direction i needed to give it the slope that it calls for....But if i try to change this to a slope glazing roof to add a curtain grid system the roof just goes flat without any grips to grab and pull.

I am doing this for a company that I am interning for and I am the only one that uses Revit here for our model presentation purposes and everyone else is still stuck in ADT....so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

When I do a standing seam roof, I model it as a flat object, then I hadd an array of a parametric "seam" family.  I think this works a lot easier.

I work for a metal building manufacturer. When i show our standing seam or rib panel roof, i just model a roof like normal and make the material the color i want. Then add 2 set of lines with colors one slightly darker and slightly lighter than the roof color. keeping these 2 lines fairly narrow and beside each other giving it a shadow effect of the ribs. plus that way any changes to the roof the lines follow along automatic.

My parametric "seam" family is simply a generic, face based (horizontal) extrusion that once in place can be stretched to length.  The extrusion shape is just a simple rectangle.  I then array that across the roof at the sam spacing.

Make sure those lines are drawn on the material and not just detail lines drawn on the roof.

To add linework as CYDER36 says, you must have a workplane so that you can have 3D lines.  A real pain to do if the roof is sloping and if you have more than one side.   I have also had problems with 3D lines actually showing in 3D rendered views.  They don't because there really is nothing there.  If I wanted something like a wire, I had to use a 3D sweep with a profile that had some size to it.

 

I would do as I suggested earlier ... but if you do get CYDER36's process to work, please let us know.

It did work.....I used the technique of turning my sloped roofs into a sloped glazing roof and then adding a curtain grid system and the mulions as needed

and for the sloped roofs that i created out of pulling grips on a flat roof....i used CDYER36's technique and drew lines on the roofs plane where necessary and then created those into a family and extruded them 1" to look like the mullions on the other roofs

Here is what I have managed to do.  I just load it into my project and I can assign the length I need or I can just pull the grip to the length needed.  I usually will do a group array to fill this across my roof.  Hope this helps.

I prefer to use the "Sloped Glazing" system in the roofs....

I spent some time last Friday trying to figure out the use of slope glazing with mullions to do what we are discussing here.  I am using 2010 and I tried following Revit's Help I could not figure it out.  I will do some more searching, but does anyone know a site that has a tutorial that I can use to figure out how to do this?

Mars, i post here some videos about this issue several time in the past, it's very easy, see this link: http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=13664

it's about a "Deck" but the system is the same to create roofs by "Sloped Glazing", i don't know if the links for the videos still work but i think you gonna understand....
