Revit seems to have difficulty aplying a model surface pattern to a conical roof shape.  Revit twists the 90 degree paralell line pattern counter-clockwise.  I have tried to dupliicate and rotate to counter-act this effect without success.  Before I give up and remove the surface pattern and apply model lines to acheive the effect, I wanted to check here to see if anyone has found a solution to my problem.

I appreciate your help.

Model lines are what I typically do with instances like this. Anyone else have a workaround?

I use either,

1. arrayed model lines, or

2. a line segmentation option (to remove fascia segmentation, I use curved model line and apply fascia to it (pic 1), or

3. slope glazing with empty panel applied on top of conical roof (pic 2).

Thanks burtont & pijpiwo!

I could not use model lines because I could not set a work plane host on a curved surface.  I ended up segmenting the curve so hips at base were same as standing seam offset (1'-2").  The result created hips which are represented by lines which can be edited to appear like the surface pattern of standing seam roof elsewhere on elevations and 3d views.  However, I could not use a curved model line to host a curved fascia because of aforementioned work plane host issue.  So I modeled a temporary 3/4" trim host which I later hid in relavent view.  See image.

Now if I can find a way to get model surface pattern for shakes to remain vertical on curved wall sweeps!

Thanks Agian burtont & pijpiwo!
