I am using Revit 2011 & have alittle roof join problem. I did a bit of a search here but could not find the answer.

I have attached a sketh of my issue. I want the roof on the left (I have now made them both the same type) to join with the smaller roof on the right to form a box gutter between them.

I can do it by merging editing the cut sketch in plan but that does not give me the linework that I would like to show when I print out the sheets. I suppose I could just sketch them in with detail lines. But I would kike to know how or if it is possible to do it.

I will be scoring goals soon, I'm in the back line at the moment!

do you not want that "hole"? why are you just not drawing the pink control line over more to intersect the roof on the right, then use the join geometry tool...right now I don't think anyone can tell if you want to make a "cricket" or make the roof forms meet...if you want a cricket, just use a thin roof or something...but I think a little better explination of what you need would help (me)

Hey thanks

I want to join the roof that is showing on the left to the one on the right. But just want the two roof forms to stay the same, i.e. 4 hips & a small ridge. These are existing roofs & are really a bit of a "curse" roofing situation. I have tried to extend the cut that i have shown on the left roof to the other one on the right but with no resolution. If you visulalise the plane of the roof on the left extending to the corresponding roof plane on the right it will then form a valley between the two roofs, that is what I want to achieve.

I don't know what a cricket is in roofing terms, here is in Australia its either a game foisted on us by the English or an insect that chirps in the spring & summer.

so here is youro solution.

look at my revision to your PDF. in plan view the intersecting roof lines will be at 45 degree angles, starting from where the two rooves meet at the eaves. redraw the left roof with the pink lines following that path, and that roof will perfectly match the other. then you can join no problem.

Thanks Warchitect

I still could not get it to work exactly as you described. But what I did do was to cut both the roofs with the Opening tab vertical cut tool in the manner you highlighted in your sketch pdf, so although they are not joined as per Revit they are both cut with matching cut linework so they meet & give me the result I wanted. The project was way too small to spend too much time on but I did really want to know how it is done.

I have attached the pdf of my result. 

Roofs are maybe a weakness in Revit as they are a bit of a weakness in ADT which I used to use.

Well it looks like you got it with a work around. I think the Roof tool in Revis is pretty sick! (in a good way) I could have knocked out what you wanted in 3-4 minutes. YOu Just need some practice with the tool. Ive been there, frustrated as hell. I know how you feel, its why I spent the 10 minutes creating a PSD file, painting on it, resaving it as a PDF and reposting...Good luck!

Warc.

 

ps. there are some good books that help a lot imho.
