Greetings

 I am wondering if there is anyway to make a roof family display the same properties as the floor family?  Specifically dealing with the metal deck.  Floors show the metal deck, roofs do not.  It would be nice to be able to see roof deck generated just like floor deck. 

 

Thanks

 

Sean

I'm not sure that you can. In our office when we had a fairly flat roof with metal deck we just used slabs. Slabs seem to play nicer than roofs.

Mostly it has to do with what the architect can see on their wall sections.  Floors show the usual metal deck pattern, unfortunatly even though roofs we use a metal deck the same cut pattern isnt shown.  If I use a slab as the roof deck then when architecture turns off floors using visibility controls the roof deck vanishes.  So it seems either way I am not winning on this item.

I don't understand.... neither floors or roofs graphically show metal deck in section in my architectural package.  You can can it metal deck and it should tag but there will only be top and bottom lines representing the deck area.  In section, we add detail or repeating detail components to show the deck in cross section.

When the architect Links my structural project in they can see my floors and roofs and my cut patterns.  They would like to see the up down cut pattern that a metal deck shows.  Revit structural doesnt give you that cut pattern on a roof.
