I have a flat roof, I'd like all four sides to slope in towards a trough that runs most of the length....without sloping the entire assembly ---just the surface. Can Revit slope the just the surface of a flat roof? Can Revit slope all four sides in towards the trough? Can I create a shallow trough running the length? Thank you

Personally i generally model the sheeting separate to the structure and as the sheeting assembly will all be sloped its relatively easy. Just give each edge a negative slope value. To achieve what you're after you would need to either do an in-place family roof and use the blend tool. For the trough you would need to you an in-place family void to cut the roof. HTH.

I'm sure I could have found a more complicated first project to learn Revit.... but I wouldn't want to. I'll look into those suggestions, though I don't even want to think about what it's going to take. So this "modeling the sheeting separately," do you mean to have no top sheathing in the inital roof assembly. And then do essentially a second roof consisting just of sheathing over top the first? And then use some kind of blender to join the two after they're both in place?

I generally model the sheeting separately because i also model the roof structure/purlins etc as beam systems... Sounds like a good project to learn revit on. I'd bet if you did pick a harder project there would be no difference in difficulty of creating components. You've just run across some items that require some custom creation is all. HTH.
