Hello everyone..

I need to model the roof tiles as shown in this image...

i tried many ways discussed in the forum here before. Ex. making curtain glazing / beam system / ....

but nothing seems to work. I want to make ridge tiles as well as roof tiles that overlap each other..

 

can anyone help me?

Look this family I post, you can create another family like you want to use in the ridge tiles.... to create the main roof, i think i use (if you don't want to use a simple texture) the "Slope Glazing Sytem".. Several slope glazing that overlap each other like in the image...

BTW- you can adapt (modify) these families to get the type of roof you use in your country (India).....

thanks everyone for your help.

 i was trying to use the sloped glazing for my roof tiles. i can place them correctly in the middle, but when they meet corners where they need to be cut to fit to a different shape; revit does not accept the family and replaces it with the glazed panel. 

How do you make the family that cuts the corners in the sloped glazing...?

Maybe you should consider using a roof instead of sloped glazing.

I would probably do a model in place family using extrusions and voids.  One family for each roof side similar to what I did here for log walls: http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=6540&start=15  You would use a void that cuts the mitered corners.

hi...

Typhoon: I saw your gallery. Wow, that was really a nice work with roof tiles.

  just can't seem to do it right. Can you please help?

Did u use only the texture: how did you define the ridge tile and the roof tiles seperately in the texture?

Did you model these components? what about the tiles that cut their profiles near the ridge.. how do we model them??

 

i am trying this out for a long time and it just doesn;t work for me... can you share some rvt file for reference?

or can you please share the process?

Sometimes I use Sloped glazing system but to not increase the file size i use only a texture to the main roof then i apply the ridge and so one with this families i just attached.. also check this site for textures: http://www.cgtextures.com/
