I'm a total newbie.

 Having built my building shell and put a roof on it I would now like to add some velux windows on the roof slopes.

 Any clues?

 I tried to create a reference plane with the slope of the roof but when I try and add a window they still seem oriented vertically and don't want to intersect with the roof.

 TIA

To insert windows in roofs you must choose the right windows, by default Revit install a few ones but if you go here in Downloads section I think there are severals, then go to windows>load choose the windows and insert in the roof....

I did download the velux from the download area but have the same problem.

 I set a reference plane along the slope of the roof but it is still not keen.

 Do I need a curtain wall or should I be able to insert a window directly into the roof slope?

 TIA

You don't need a curtain wall, you should be able to insert the window directly in the roof slope, are you selecting the right window??? in the option bar, on the left you have the menu where appear al windows in the project, check when you click in windows if the Velux window is selected...

Hi SemiDeatched, I have tried already with the window you downloaded from here, it was made from a .dwg file in a Generic Model family type, so what you have to do is to change it to a Window family category (see image). Open the family file, go to settings/Family Category and Parameters... and then change to Windows....Hope it helps you....

Perfect!  There is no way I could have spotted that!  Worked 100% as soon as I tweaked that.

ThanksSD

Hi SemiD,

I just wanted to let you know, that we realeased a Velux® Centre-pivot roof window. Due to the fact that it is a roof based Family you wouldn't have any troubles inserting it into your roof.

If you are interested in the family and its features just visit the related content page at http://www.revit-content.com/content/01-01-5465675-Velux_GGU.htm

Regards,

Michael

Our team are almost architects and engineers, so all content that we create is on the one hand really realistic and on the other hand we know, which functions are important to make the architect's daily life easier. Now we are for example working on a escalator Family that is fully parametrised to be able to set up for every specific manufacturer model by the Revit User himself.

Which kind of projects do you do ?

Are there any families that you miss to make your life easier ?

Regards,

Michael
