There are a couple threads out there that are very similar but with no responses, so I am hoping to rekindle the fire on the subject. I need a butterfly roof that starts like a sine curve at the eave and flattens out to the valley. The eave also does a sine curve in plan. I modelled it with a blended mass and voids (to cut the eave in plan) just to see how the object worked with the building. I now need this object as a roof so that I can attach walls, fascia, change thickness quickly, etc. I tried roof by face and it can create the concave side but not the convex.

Create the roof as a component using the roof category in the same way that you created the mass.

Thanks man...that takes care of the issue of attaching walls, but doesnt help me create it as a structure (material composition) so that i can change the properties of it via roof types. I suppose I will just keep trying. Thanks though.

You are right - it will all be one material.  What you can do is create the components separately as different roofs.  Once you have created the first, the rest should be reletavely easy to create and it will display correctly in the sections.  It will also be useful to display the different conditions, such as at the eaves where the detail is probably different.

Alright, so I got it to work, finally. I had modelled a blended mass before and tried 'Roof by Face', but since Revit couldnt blend the mass correctly, it wouldnt create the roof. So I had to make one roof composed of two seperate masses, and then 'Roof by Face' and it worked. Still wont create fascia since the eave is curved in two directions, but hey, ya cant have it all.

juby81:

For my work, I'm doing something similar. I need to create a specialized roof component with flexible parameters such as the one laid out in your family. I'm looking for insight into this matter. Would you be willing to share the family you created? It would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Michael Gruenbaum

Awwwww man. I would definitely send it to you if I still had it. We decided that it was just too costly to construct so we went with a much more simplistic roof design, therefore I deleted the curved roof. All that tedious design work for nothing! Sorry man.

Sure no problem. Thought it was worth a try anyway. I need to create a roof component for work, and am looking for advice on it. I have no idea on how even to start. I need to make one that the walls can be attached to.
