I'm trying to develop a barrel tile roof for a client project. I have tried several different things, but when I render it does not look good. This is an urgent project rendering that I am doing in Revit Architecture 2009. Can anyone help me ?

I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

I've attached to basic perspectives for the renderings I'm trying to achieve. I need a red barrel tile roof on top.

You want the roof RED??? that's it??? pick in the roof and go to Properties, then go to the materials, duplicate to change the name then assign the material (texture) you want...

i think you mean a spanish tile roof?  Like the one pictured.  I have seen several threads in the forums on ways to do this type of roofing.

Wheelegrc - That's exactly what I'm trying to do. Can you help me?

I've tried searching the forum and the Articles on how to do this and I keep coming across people asking how to do it too.

I'm looking for directions on how to do this step-by-step. I'd appreciate the help.

I have never done one.  As far as i can tell you can get it to look ok just using a image file.  To get ones that sctually pop up i geuss it would take a ton of sweeps or something along those lines.  Am i correct on this?  Sorry that i am not really that much help.

I tried changing the texture, but the roof still looks flat. Do you have any more suggestions?

Yes I saw that image. That is what I'm trying to achieve, but when I render the roof still looks flat.

 I have downloaded a different texture from  http://www.cgtextures.com  But the image still looks flat.

 Do you have any suggestions?

Yeah, you can draw that in 3d but the model it's gonna be "Heavy", i create this movie a few months ago, it's similar like what you want, you must draw the profile like you want and use the "Slope Glazing".... http://screencast.com/t/D0V6EUsi
