I am trying to create a sloped slab in my building.  It slopes in one direction.  I have tried to use the slope command in the properties of the slab but that only allows 1/4" / 12" slopes and I do not have a nice ratio like that for slope.  My ratio is more like 30" / 2431" which revit will not let me input. 

That best solution for me would be if I was able to snap each end of the slab to seperate building levels but I do not see a way to do this.  I can make a reference plane that slopes right from one level to another but revit will not allow me to draw my floor with I make that reference plane active. 

This is a floor for an entire building so I assumed that I would try to make it a floor and not a ramp. Any suggestions? 

Using Revit architecture 2011.

 Thanks

once you have created your floor you can modify the heights of the corners very easily. select the floor, and click on modify subelements, select the corner and change the elevation. voila

You can also use a slope arrow, which will let you define the heights at the ends of the arrow. Make the arrow extend from one edge to the other, then set the offsets. No calculating slope required.

 

Modifying the points does work, but I don't like doing that for simple, single direction slopes. It seems like the slightest change to the slab resets the point offsets in weird ways, and with the slope arrow method you don't have to worry about offsets if you have any jogs in the slab.

I sent a file which was too large and not accepted. Purge unused, and here it is.
