Has anyone ever created a Spanish Style Tile roof? I am getting ready to start one and would like suggestions. I am attaching a photo of what I am looking for. Any help on the process would be appreciated. Thanks. J

I experimented with this a few months back using Sloped Glazing... I created the tiles by creating two different mullion types (using a custom profile, turned 180degs from each other) and set the cutain panels as 'empty'. Set the curtain grid to the appropriate width and away you go. Its not a perfect method, but looks quite effective for elevations and medium distance 3D views and means you can control the roof as you would normally. Beware though, as you'll probably get a big performance hit with that many tiles flying around. Good luck

There must be any way to create a new pattern for the roof (barrel tile or spanish tile) so, instead of shingles pattern (normally used) we could assign this new pattern to the roof. I have been trying to create the same spanish style too. I appreciate if you let us know if you have any others ideas. Thanks. Carlos

I did do this late last year for a school project for a competition. Check out Got3D.com for a pattern, or just google a picture of the tiles. Save the picture. Create a normal roof and then go to properties, then to edit/new, then click on the roof material. You will see another arrow for rendering texture, click on this. From here you will be able to choose Material, Create New, Default Material. Then go to the maps tab and add the material. You may have to create a new library to save this material under though. Once all is said and done you may want to do a region raytrace to double check everything. If you have any trouble just post another reply and ill see what i can do.

carlosgt has a point in using hatch patterns for the graphic effect of a spanish style roof - is uses less machine resources and gets you to show enough information needed for construction documentation. I have a hatch pattern I am applying as a model pattern but somehow I do not have control of the scale. Here it is...what can you suggest?

I know, the Import Scale is greyed out right? Just click once on the new pattern spanish2. The Import Scale is now editable.

OK, this what I did to create my spanish roof tile. I download a new fill pattern from the family pattern in this web site. You can find a few ones, like "barrel tile", "clay roof", etc. After I saved the file (*.pat) in my C drive, I load it in revit going to settings_fill pattern (click in model), edit_(click in custom)_import and go to the file *.pat you downloaded before. (you can change the scale of the pattern just click in the pattern and change the scale. And that is it. Then you can assing this new pattern to any roof. Carlos

ghost16383  can you provide step by step instructions for creating the Spanish tile roof shown in your post.  Your image file is more detailed than jweber's which shows a simple extrusion witout the segments.

you have to apply pat file to surface pattern of roof material.

You can model the roof as a mass, divide the surface and apply a component to the face.  Now you have a Spanish tile roof.  Apply your chosen material and look like a Revit god.  Use your newfound glory only for good.

But i think just few people need this. it's too heavy.
