How do you convert massings into floors, walls and roofs? In Revit 2010 it seems like it is only possible to convert masses into floors and I need it to be converted into a roof.

Perhaps this helps. It's drawn out of a mass and I want to make a roof out of it.

It would have been better just to do it as an extruded roof.

 

Under roof ... look at roof by face... Helps also to read the HELP - Creating Roofs from Mass Instances - it's like RAGU - "It's in there"

If I do a extruded roof i can't get those cutouts at at base of the roof. Revit just makes the straight or like a plumb cut. That is why I tried with masses. It's all about the base of the roof not the rest.

I think that WWHub means that you can create the roof in exactly the same way that you created the mass.  Just create a new component in the roof category and do what you did to create the mass.

A new problem has just occured. I want to place a skylight in my component roof. Althoug I have selected roof when creating component, skylights doesn't see it as a roof.
