I am currently working on a Dance Theater project and my design requires things I've never done in Revit before.  I've included a couple of images here for reference.

 

What I am trying to do it create a mass/roof that follows the green model lines vertically, and the curved auditorium walls horizontally.  I figured that the best method for doing this would be to create a mass in the correct shape and then create a roo using that mass, but I cannot seem to model the shape.  I can't seem to get the massing tools to let me create a line in the vertical plane, or to let me select a vertical workplane.  

So then I tried to simply rotate the group along the x-axis (lay it on it's side) and I cannot figure out how to do that.

 

Does anyone know how to either create the massing I need or rotate something along the x-axis?

 

Thanks in advance, here are those images:

I'm looking for the second image and i ask: those lines (shapes) are symmetric? if so you don't need to create a mass for that, just create that roof by extrusion....

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean.  I was under the impression that extrusion was a single level across the whole object.

 

Also, sorry for that last post, I refreshed and it reposted.  Still getting used to this message board system.

They are symmetrical.  the issue is that I need it to also conform to the curved wall horizontally.  So far as I know, and I'm, probably wrong, the depth (y position) of the extrusion face cannot be varied, it has to be constant for the entire roof.

 

I need a way to vary it.

I can't quite figured (by your images) how is the FINAL "Shape-Model" to your roof and YES="the depth (y position) of the extrusion face cannot be varied, it has to be constant for the entire roof." but if it's what i think, after you create your Roof by Extrusion, pick in the roof and in the options bar you have a button "Vertical Opening" (i think this is the right name - i don't have Revit here right now) where you can cut in a plan view that roof by extrusion with the shape you want in Plan....

That worked ^^  Thank you very much.

 

Now I'm having troubles getting the walls below the roof to attach to it.  I select the wall, then the roof and it immediately tells me that it can't keep the two object joined.  It works for most of the walls, but there are a couple that it doesn't work for.

 

Any thoughts as to why that might be?

In "Modify" tab try to "Detach" and/or "Unjoin" those walls then try to attach again....

Figured it out.  the wall was just barely outside of the roof area, so it wouldn't attach.  Thank you for all the help, I think I got it to where I want it.
