Hi, I'm trying to replicate this roof (attachment) in revit. There are three separate roofs all with different curved profiles with hundreds of beams attached. I'm assuming i need to create one member and array it along a path (roof profile). However, the array function only allows for a radial or linear array. As well as arraying it along a profile the members will need to have the top face aligned to the underside of the ceiling... thanks for your time. cheers, mitch a link to some more images... http://www.archdaily.com/314527/jack-nicklaus-golf-club-yazdani-studio/

You can do that with a family that includes the repeat tool. That tool is available in the generic model adaptive template, in the mass template, and in the in-place mass tool in a project. You need two curves, as divided paths, and one object that works as adaptive beam that goes from one point of one curve to the correspondent point on the other curve across the roof. Then, repeat.

In 1909, Antoni Gaudi did the roof that is shown in the attachment, below. The model of this roof with the beams was made using the technique described above. There is an article about this roof, in my blog .
