Hi Everyone,

I am doing a roof that's has three sections and joined at a single point on top of a wall.  I am having trouble creating the roof by footprint or extrusion.  The three roofs slope in different angles forming over three part of a building and there is glazing between the vertical faces of each roof.  Any idea how this could be easily done?  I have done a massing model of the roof in Acad.

Hi There,

Thanks for the video.  I tried to do the same but when the roof was finaly created, I couldnt place it on top of my Revit model because there was a big scale difference between the two.  I am not sure if there is any other way.  I also have joining walls between the different roof levels which dont go all the way down to the floor.  The three roofs are over the main hall of the building with no internal walls attached to the roofs apart from the boundary walls. Here's a snapshot of it.

Hi, "I couldnt place it on top of my Revit model because there was a big scale difference between the two." because when you import the model to Revit, did you put Units-Auto detect? Wel, you can also, draw by "Footprint, in the video you can see how to create that, you must to create 3 levels because the 3 roof are in diferent height and you must to know the angle of them...
