I want to make a mission tile roof. Every post ive found on this site has been vague so I have tried various approaches.

 This time ive created a roof by extrusion, using a repeating long barrel shape to cover the roof plane. but its flat, how can you then give the roof by extrusion a slope. I cant rotate it in section to match the sub roof (in grey) nor can you draw the extrusion in a plane other than facing front (or right,left etc)

see the image where Im at.

WWhub,I was hoping for a concrete answer to the specific question, not a redirect.

That thread is useless. You get to the end of it and it stops. there is no real help there. all the post go there too... Even reading the portuguese and watching the portugese video, they stop right at the fundamental part at the hyp...or how to make the panel resizable..my little revit test has that all in it (ive got like three buildings with various attemps to get a roof tile.) 

Typhoons image of the huge house with the roof tiles looks great. he said he did it with textures (but what rendering program)....also I have no problem getting the rendering to show a roof tile texture. but if you like to make presentations of the model views not rendered but shaded and shadowed, and a little more "architectural" so I would like a rippled roof surface that slopes.

 

is it only done then with a "in place" roof model ?

I think Mr. Spots post on another thread says it all and I will underline the parts I think that are important:

"There are methods of modelling the tiles in Revit and there are numerous posts here and on AUGI on how to do so.

That said, the overhead of doing this to the model really bogs it down and is really only viable on small projects, which is why its not a command that is blatantly obvious.

Remember Revit is primarily a documentation tool and secondarily a design tool and finally a Presentation Tool.  If you want realistic renderings Autodesk currently expect us to export to another application such as VIZ or MAX to achieve the display you require.  In these apps you can achieve the 3D look without actually modelling it in 3D.

The bmp file you refer to only effects the display when its rendered..."

-----------------------

Typhoons roof is standard Revit. Note that he uses a mixture of bmp and modeled areas.  Perhaps Ty can repost the movie he had on his process....

I respect everything you've said, Ive also read those exact words on the other posts. ive done all that it states with the textures and renderings, ive also downloaded the tile panel and used that too. I just want an answer to a simple techincal question, and all I need is a: "yes or no, you can tilt the extrusion or no, you have to use another tool to build that object"

so one more time: Ignore the fact that my roof is a barrel tile shape, can a flat roof extrision be tilted up to match a roof slope?  or any other angle for that matter?

Update: here is an image of barrel tiles as a certain wall panel . just have the single tile extrusion height locked to the top and bottom. Use a 18" parallel line pattern on them. Ill make the ridges from a sigle library object im gonna make to cover the edges.

 one could then save it as a seperate project linked into your main, while most of the time you use a basic roof form or something. you could use the options. I might try this on my actual project and see how much bogging down I actually get. so far the shadows snap on right away without the progress bar...but its only this single model.

"Typhoons image of the huge house with the roof tiles looks great. he said he did it with textures (but what rendering program)...." - ONLY REVIT

"Typhoons roof is standard Revit. Note that he uses a mixture of bmp and modeled areas.  Perhaps Ty can repost the movie he had on his process.... " - I did that in another thread (http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=22937#t87417), right Warchitect?

There is another way to create those Spanish tiles more realistic, using the "Beam System" and creating a new family "Structural Framing - Beams and Braces" like you can see in my images BUT this increases the file size, so, a good texture some times is better than this.

Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgCat_mzUwg

he don't show the process because he want to sell the DVD with the families and the videos where he explain that but this is the way he use "Beam system"
