Hello. 

trying to make a pyramidal skylight shaft. but cant seem to use the 3d tools to make the shape I need to make a wall by face. can someone point me in the right direction of making this? see picture. the skylight is on an angle in the roof, but the shaf needs to open to the ceiling which is "flat"

This is tricky becasue you want to create a 'void' in the attic but really the attic with a revit roof is just a big open space. So how to you model a void within a big air space ?? What you want is the drywall and the framing.

 

You could create an adaptive family to do this but that will take a bit of time. Honestly, I'd just draw 4 - 3D model lines from corner to corner just like your sketch.

Model in place the blue pyramid (swept blend), then model he red void offset reflcing the wall thickness (swept blend). then model the yellow void to subtract the dashed blue top aligned with the roof slope (extrude).

I don't think you can do a sweep blend with that. The two profiles and the path configuration and orientaion may give you trouble.

The true solution is an adaptive family.
