How can I create a wall at an angle? Lets say a wall that slopes outwards at an angles of 75 degrees.

Currently using an in-place family wall, either created via a sweep or extrusion.

Thank you. That works if I need a single sloping wall. But, I guess my requirement is a little more tricky. I posted another topic about this as well. Please find attached a DWG file. This is a simplified model of the building I need to model. The walls slope outwards. They also meet a sloping roof.

It's still easy like Mr Spot said. Create in-place family wall with sweep, and that wall cut with void extrusion, before that make reference plane in elevation view (front) and put it to workplane and then make void ... After that make roof footprint and uncheck slope you don't want and slope you leave type angle what you want cheers

Thank you. But, the first challenge here is to make two sloping walls meet each other. I could create the sloping wall but it has a fixed extrusion level. In Revit terminology, how can I trim two sloping walls?

Attached is an RVT of what Xane was talking about in his post. I created the roof first, added a reference plane in south elevation view, named ref plane "roof" Then created an inplace family of walls as sweep, before closing out inplace family, make a void extrusion setting your work plane to "roof", make sure void has enough height to cut the wall sweep (you can make the walls go up past the roof when doing wall sweep), cut the wall sweep with the void, finish family and you are in business.

If you wait about a week you'll find it might be a lot easier...

Thank you. I managed to get the walls right. But, the roof I am working on is more complex. It is a sloping roof with all 4 edges at different heights. Is there a way to work around this one? I cannot simply use a void extrusion with a roof plane, because the roof is not following a single plane.

You create a roof base plane using the massing tool and creating a blend to generate a surface framework for the roof. Then use the roof by face tool...

The week comment is due to the fact that Revit Building 8.1 is due to ship August 12th. (not sure if this is US only) http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=5106083 at the bottom of the page it duscusses Revit Building 8.1.
