I have a building where two roofs intersect.  Because of this intersection, unwanted roof lines show up on the interior of the building.  How do I get rid of those?

For the roof extrustion tool: Click on the roof then up at the top there is an option to edit cut plane. open in a plan view where you can see the area causing the issue. The green dashed lines is the path of your roof. You want to draw lines to outline that area where the roof is coming into the interior. the lines can't have an open edge. The closed portion of lets say the square you created will pretty much be voided in that space. Then finish sketch. hopefully it works like you want.

 Roof by footprint: You have to go into the edit area for this option. leaving your sloped lines (the one with > by them) alone just create a outline the portion that you don't want the roof to show in the interior. Using lines that don't have a slope definition (uncheck the box uptop). In this case the "closed lines" will be the roof footprint and the open area's will be where the roof isn't. Make sense?

It might take some playing around with. Sometimes the joined portion of roofs have issues and it takes some working tweaking.

Hopes this helps somewhat I really am horrible at explaining things but I try. Your revit help should be able to describe the difference to you and have tips on editing. I have to do these all the time. my boss likes really complicated roofs :-(

Hi, "I have a building where two roofs intersect.  Because of this intersection, unwanted roof lines show up on the interior of the building.  How do I get rid of those?" - to get rid of those lines go to the top menu and you have the button "JOIN/UNJOIN ROOF", you don't need to use voids to do this, then if you want to create a "open" in the two (2) roofs, well, after this do what SEdwards told you...

I seem to have gotten the roof shape to work....however I'm having an issue with lines showing up on the exterior of the roof where the two different roofs were joined.  I did join geometry....and still have lines and hatch issues on the exterior.  Some of the roofs I've joined geometry on work, and others don't.  I have attached a picture of the portion of the roof I'm talking about.  My problem started because of the courtyard in the middle and not being able to make a roof in a loop.  Is there an easier way to make a single roof while leaving a hole for the courtyard?

Thanks for your help!

Ya you have to edit both portions of the hip roof.

 

Both portions need to be cut out of eachother, and then the lines will not be there

I still am not able to get it to work.  Notice that the gable on the lower left work and cleaned up fine.  I did the exact same thing on the lower right gable....doesn't work.  My error messages say can't join because of circular references...and also when I cut out both roofs to match exactly, I get the error "misses target" when I try to join geometry.  It's frustrating because it worked perfectly on the opposite side of the building.  Any other suggestions?

Well, by your pic. and i think it's a TOP view, i see something i put in red and it's like when you create that roof you miss the right point, it's look like "it" are with some rotation to the right, i think you must check that roof, "Notice that the gable on the lower left work and cleaned up fine.  I did the exact same thing on the lower right gable....doesn't work.",did you do a Mirror Left to the Right? "My error messages say can't join because of circular references...and also when I cut out both roofs to match exactly, I get the error "misses target" when I try to join geometry" because i think they aren't in the same elevation, you can check that with some sections views, only seeing the model i can tell more about this....

Everything was the same elevation...I think the jpg was just a little distorted. 

I've got my roof looking right now, exept for one last problem.  The area in the red box wont line up.  My 2d roof lines line up, but for some reason now the roof has an elevation change.  please see the pics.

Sorry for all the questions....this is my first revit project....and thank you for your help.

Hi, i try to recreate that roof in the problematic zone and like you can see in the pic. attached i don't have this problem, i don't know how do you create that roof and i can't see by your images all the properties of them, like slopes and so one, like i told you yesterday  "only seeing the model i can tell more about this...."
