I've been searching the internet high and far to see if there is a video or some sort of instruction as to how I can create a roof that is essentiatlly 2 layers tall and has exposed custom rafter tails. I've included a detail of what it is that I'm trying to achieve. All I need now is to figure out how to achieve it in a Revit Model. Currenlty using Revit 2012.

 

Thanks!

How much is modeled and how much is detail?

You could model this as one roof with all the layers then add a void to cut out the tail area and add modeled rafters or just rafter tails.   All of the 2X and T&G would be detail elements.

I did end up creating a roof system with the roof tool, giving all the thicknesses of the T&G, 2x6 framing, sheathing and roofing finish. I then increased the roof base offset by the cut thickness of the 4x8 rafter. I had also created a custom rafter family with the Generic template (sadly my parameters skills need honing because I couldn't specify a distance and they wouldn't trim to each other when I mirrored them). So I decided to cut the custom rafter family to a 24" exposed tail only and inserted it at the plate height. Over all, I ended up with the attached picture so I could use it as a color samples example for a client meeting and Planning Approval color sample submittal. When I do get to the interiors portion of presentations, I'm definitely going to have to learn how to properly make those rafters if anything varies from the general beam and beam system designs.

Cut a Void out of i.e. 2x12 Roof If your EXPOSED Rafter tails are 6,8 etc.

I want roof structure layer to be transparent so rafters tails appear.
