Hi every one, I'm drawing an house in revit 2011 for a customer, a great house. He desire to have metal roof somewhere, I can make it with out problem, but the final result its a disaster. The problem is that its a 3 sloped roof and in the corner, the panels doesnt follow the otherside. I post a picture of what I try to explain because english its not my first language.

I don't know what you are doing for your roof.  I do a flat panel roof and add seperate extrusions for the standing seams.  You can also just use a material but it doesn't have enough "bump" fo me, that's why I add the seams.

Without seeing your revit file it is hard to know for sure why your model looks like that... but have you tried to render it with a material that just looks like metal?  Unless of course it is absolutely necessary for it to have that same geometric texture.

This view is using the standard roof from Revit City as I remember.

Well, I don't know if anyone else would suggest something like this... but if you use trianglular mullions that mimick the panel overlaps... and regular system panels that can conform to a diagonal edge like that, you might get something that looks pretty sharp.  I tried it out, pic related.
