Hi everyone,

I am a student.We have a class about timber roof structure.I need to design timber roof and get detail drawing,workshop drawings.I am using revit 2015.It has extensions of rafter framing,frame generator,roof trussess.However I don't know how to use it,how to get workshop drawing because in the internet(youtube) there isn't enough tutoriols about this.When I make a small research on the internet,I see an extension ,AGA-CAD wood framing .Most of tutorials about the issue tells this AGA-CAD wood framing extension.

               I want to what is the most logical way to model timber roof and crate workshop drawings.Thank you...

AGA-CAD have a great add on for that, but it will cost you. An alternative would be to use beam systems and rotate and shape to suit.

You can use structural families but you may need to learn a lot more. 

If this is not BIM, then I would be tempted to create each timber fame as one, modeled-in-place bent built on a work plane.  Just one simple extrusion if it is all same thickness.  Then add the other direction timbers as another model-in-place family.  If this is a square structure with no mi-bents, that would be 4 famlies.
