Is it possible to draw sloped walls? I am currently modeling a parking garage in Revit. The 7'-0" high precast conc. spandrel walls are sloped to match the ramp angles in the north and south elevations.

yes you can, just use in place family (wall type) and use solid blend, define top and bottom of wall... HTH let me know if you have trouble with that Winking

I am not sure what you mean by "in place family (wall type). I am pretty new to Revit and I am not 100% up on the technical lingo.

I would place reference planes ( use elevation view to place them), give them a name then simply place walls and attach the tops/bottoms of the walls to the correnct reference plane name (highlite wall then click on the attach button)

Thanks for the help, your suggestion worked really well. Next problem: How can I add reveals or sweeps to that sloped wall that are parallel to the top or bottom. By default sweeps and reveals are parallel to the floor line? If it isn't possible I will just use model lines. Tim

There are offset parameters in the sweep properties to control placement.

the offset parameters only work for walls that are parrallel to the gound. What I mean, is that if the top of my wall is sloped, and I have a revaled defined in the wall style. the reveal runs parrallel to the ground, not the top of the sloped wall. If you could mock up a quick demonstration it would be appreciated.

Apply as in-place family sweep then use the pick command to pick the edge you wish to apply it to and use the offsets to position it appropriately. HTH.

I still cannot get this to work, Would it be possible for you to mock up a small example?

Yes Draw the wall and cut a section full length of wall. Then view the section and pick the wall and pick Edit Profile. This will allow you to slope, step or cut openings in the wall/ Top Bottom middle.. When done Finish Sketch.

This thread has 5 years and i don't understand how you can create a "SLOPE Wall" like you said... "Edit profile... this will allow you to slope..."   - How?
