Hello everyone!

 

I have two roofs with different slopes and same thickness intersecting and I can't figure out how to get them to clean up and look right. I have attached an image highlighting the issue. I've tried joining the roofs to no avail. Any pointers, advice or solutions are greatly apprectiated!

 

Regards.

I don't have revit here to test.  What happens if you move the lower roof top sketch line in to the vertical ocation of that red line and upper roof junction?  Then see how it cleans up.

I have attached 3 photos to show you how to make such a roof. If you have any questions - write. In order to understand the roofs well, you can download the following file with examples of roofs: https://measuredsurvey365.co.uk/revit-roof-forms/

WWHUB,

Unfortunately I had trouble understanding your method due to my limited knowledge in Revit.

 

Oskokos,

I am not sure I followed your method completely, but it did get me in the right direction. I used the same idea of creating an intermediate level. I used some detail lines to find the intersection of the bottom parts of the roofs, and used that level as my "cutoff level" for the steeper roof.

However, for the lower sloped roof, I left the rafter cut to plumb cut, joined the two elements, and moved the footprint line to where the detail lines intersected. This took some simple math, since I had to figure the 'x' distance out in elevation view, and then apply it to the plan view.

Thank you both for taking the time to respond to my question!

Best regards
