Hi all, How would I go about creating a roof type that is made of grass? Just like Gilligans Island. The resort I am working on at the moment uses a roof type call 'Alang Alang'. It's pretty common in the tropics. How can I create this in Revit? cadjockey

your question relate to structure or hatching? I would just create it as a normal roof with hatch pattern for surface and cut. if you are talking about the shape, do a roof by extrusion... am i answering anything here? Smile

Hi eldados, The roof is quite an organic form. See attached image. I am able to create a simple sweep revolve however, only as perfect circle. You'll notice the humps on the corners. How would I do these? cadjockey

just create the roof like you normally do, you can easily create this roof, than all I'll do is host sweep fascia, create a profile to suite you and apply...
