Hi revitalistas!

 I've been checking the forum for a possible answer.  I have a pent-up roof and it looks fine when the roof is rectangular.  The roof, however, has skylight openings and a notch.  I go to edit boudaries (or footprint) and weird roof slopes appear. 

 This is what I did --

--I drew my rectangular roof (1-1/2" metal deck)

--after giving it an elevation height, I drew in my split line and added elevation points to both ends. 

--I go to edit boundary, I draw in the openings.  Weird roof slope appears.  I add in elevation points the skylight openings and to the inside of the notch. 

Am I doing this right?  I don't think I should be seeing those lines.  plus, in the section view, it doesn't look right. 

 Also , and I'm just wondering -- I'm working with just the structure aspect of the revit model.  What difference does it make if I draw a floor as the roof or draw the roof under Architect & Site.  I've always drawn it as a floor (mainly because that's what I've been instructed to do). 

 If anyone could help, that would be great. 

 Thanks,

Westminster30

I know what's wrong with it, but I'm not sure on how to fix it.

The openings and notch isn't going along the slope.

Why don't use the "opening by face" tool? go to modeling>opening by face... you have to use the roof tool for it... In my opinion, if you're modeling a roof - use a roof tool not a floor tool.

thanks!

It works great for the skylight openings.  But what about the notch?  If I edit the footprint, it's as if I'm editing on a flat surface.

just create an in-place generic void form extrusion... you can set the of your extrusion there... then use cut geometry to show the notch.

One Question: Did you try with the "Vertical Opening" tool in that Slab/roof???

No, I did not try that -- but good to know!  Thanks!

 I would think there's an easier way to modifying the roof edge...

 Thanks, guys!
