Revit 2013.

So, I've sloped floors using numerous methods: slope arrow, modifying the sub elements, defining constant height, and of course the defines slope check box. 

I have a typical exterior slab that is sloping both away from the building and with the grade along the elevation.  The slope in both directions, for the sake of the model, will be constant so I'm trying to avoid calculating EVERY SINGLE POINT when using Modify Sub Elements.  See the image attached for a section of the slab.  

Does anyone have a clever way to get around calculating every point?  Perhaps another method (that's not using a roof)?

Thanks.

Use a diagonal slope arrow.

You can also modify sub elements, corner points only. That results in a warp plane.

Be careful with 'modify sub elements'.  That tool is not intended for structure slope, only finish slope.  It creates slope by changing the thickness of one of the layers of the component you are modifying.  It does not have to be "...corner points only" - you can add additional control points.

 

You can read more on this in your HELP HERE.
