Using Revit Architecture 2012.  How can I slope the top of a floor or roof while keeping the bottom flat?

After you draw your floor click on it and there will be an option in the Shape Editing tab to ADD POINT.  Add a point with the desired slope drop.

Thank you, but I think you may have misunderstood my question.  Adding a point raises or lowers the top, but the bottom slopes along with it.  For example if I slope an 8" slab up another 4", I want the center to show 12" slab while the edges show 8".  In other words, the bottom is completely level.

Go into the properties of the floor.  Where you can add and remove layers.  There's a checkbox to the right, labled "Variable."

 

This will allow a layer of the floor or roof, IE Insulation, to have variable thicknesses while a bottom layer stays flat on level, and top layers are sloped. 

 

You can either control the thickness with slope arrows or teafoe5's method.

No I understand.  If you have an 8" floor and put a point in the center with an elevation of 4" you will get 12" in the center and 8" on the edges with the bottom flat the whole way through.. see the attachment.  However I did forget to mention and this is most likely your problem that in your Type Properties, Edit Structure, you need to have VARIABLE checked.

Thank you both! The variable option is what fixed it
