So, I have a circular roof which needs a pitch of 1/4"=1'-0".  The problem is after I have defined the slop, I get an error message which says it cannot make the roof.  The sloped arrow doesn't work either since that controls the slope over the whole roof and doesn't distribute the slope around the circular shape.

It is possible.  I have done this before.  I just can't remember how.

I have attached an image below of what I want to achieve in Revit.  This is a model for school which involved two circular roofs.  Both of them were created by defining the slope on one of the sides of the circular footprint.  The slope is set to 1/4"=1'-0".  The larger roof is sloped towards the center of the circle and the smaller roof is sloped away from the center of the circle made by the roofs.

I am working in Revit 2015.  This is the first question I have asked in the years that I have been working with Revit.  I wish I could still say I have always either been able to figure something out or that I have found the answer on the internet.  Oh well, I need some help fast.


I learned and used Revit throughout school.  I have never worked on it in a firm, but I almost did.  Instead, I work at a firm that uses ArchiCAD, so my skills are getting rusty too.

I think it is because somehow by circles on eithe edge of the roof are not parallel.  I guess both sides of the circular roof have to be parallel for the sloping of that roof to work.

if u want a full control over the element you can use floor instead of roof and start adding points and then use the modify sub element tool to change the height of those specific points you put , note that this process takes time to get a reasonable outcome .

hope this helps....

Can you create a roof by sweep?

Create a mass and then apply your roof by face to the mass. If you havent done anything with masses before you should watch a few tutorials or read the help.
