I think this question has been asked before but I couldn't find them; anyway if anyone can explain if it is possible to model sloped walls? I have worked around it with a 'thin' roof but is there another way that accepts windows?

You can create an in-place family wall, and make the shape/form that you want(using an extrusion or a sweep). That way the form behaves like a wall. HTH

slopping walls are easy to create, I like to use the blend command, set the bottom profile and then set the top. I find it the easiest way, but there are many ways to skin a cat Smile

I'm not sure why anyone hasn't mentioned this, so I think i might be misunderstanding what you are looking for, but if you just draw a wall, then click on it and do "edit profile" you can add angled lines and make it sloped of whatever you want to do. Adding windows is no problem. And you can actually keep a normal wall structure without a family, if you care about such things. Cheers!

This is true, you can make the wall cant in elevation profile, but you can actually only do this in 1 direction (the orientation when you are looking straight at the wall in elevation). You cannot cut a section through a wall and cant it out. To make a wall such as that, you must create an in-place family. That may or may not make sense. Or, you can use the massing tools to create canted walls. You can also make sloped glazings as curtain walls, and these can cant out. I hope that Revit will have a built-in tool to create canted walls in an upcoming relase, because ArchiCAD has this functionality. Not sure how it handles doors and windows in a canted wall though.
