Does anyone know how to create a roof in Revit 2011 with the following specs.  The building is basically a rectangle.  There are 5 main wooden beams running north south which are cambered (about 6 inches higher at the center than at either end).  These beams are spaced 20 feet apart.  So there is a subtle vault like slope.  Additionally, the 3rd beam in is set higher then the rest.  each beam on either side of it steps down by an incriment of 3" then the previous, creating a slope towards the perimeter parapets in the east west direction as well.  So basically the roof slopes to all four perimeter walls. I need to model this if possible, and am wondering what the best way to go about this might be.  I'd also like to model the beams/structure as well.  Any thoughts?  I'm including a roof plan that I drew in autoCad to help with visualization.  

 see attached files

Many thanks.

Use the 'Modify Sub Elements' command to place lines and/or points and change their elevations. If the framing is not sloped, then modify your roof to include a variable thickness layer that will change thickness with the slope.

This sounds like a standard roof that slopes top and bottom to all 4 walls.  Low slope doesn't matter so just model like you would a hipped roof.
