Help, I'm still relatively new at this and need to model a curved sloped roof, actually 2 of them.  The structural steel is already located accurately for the slope and the lengths from wall to wall.  Now I need to model the roofs on top of the steel, and of course extending beyond the edge of the steel.  I have tried using reference planes/lines, and think I am just not getting it with those. Any help you can offer on how to get this modeled would be greatly appreciated.  I attached 3 drawings to hopefully fully explain the desired end result.  Oh, and if anyone can offer assistance on how to get the sloped top mullions on my curtain wall too, that would b e bonus!  I'm using Revit 2016.

Thanks in advance!

N ot sure what you want because some information is lacking.  I would assume that the lower roof is held flat along the curve and slopes backward or forward from there.  That needs to be clarified because we can't see it.


Yhe upper roof should be simple.  The steel should have been designed to have the low end flat and everything then slopes down to that.  Jut a simple sketch with a slope arrow.

I would go for creating a surface with the curves and bends as required.

and turn that into a roof using roof by face.
