I am trying to slope the top side of the floor system. ie Balcony on Concrete floor where the bottom of the slab is level and the balcony portion is recessed 1" and then slopes 1/4" per foot - What is the best way to achieve this and still have the material calculations be correct. Inplace family for all the balconies unioined to the floor slab or Void Form?

Not really something to be modelling in Revit. An in-place family would be the best way to achieve it, but frankly i wouldn't bother. Just model flat then in any details add slope there. Until we have the ability to create solid floors using elevational point placement this will be more trouble than its worth. HTH.

Thanks for the Info - I did find a way to create this - I created a profile for the balcony and then applied a slab edge sweep. Then unioned the slab and the balcony - Another trick is to segment the line of the floor slab edge where the balconies are going to be placed so when you copy the balcony up in section it just sweeps that line segment and not the entire slab edge.

Trich00, please expand upon your solution, since I didn't understand what you did to resolve the multi-sloped floor.

I would love it if revit could model both a floor and/or a roof by specifying spot elevations.

I've modeled a sloping slab (such as a sloping sidewalk) by using the 'roof' command.  Just change the "structure" from asphalt shingles to concrete, adjust the thickness, and draw it like you would draw a shed roof.

Yes, trich00please explain how you created this. I have been trying to look for something like this for the past 2 weeks. It would be helpful on exactly how the top of a balcony, roof, or slab could be sloped and the bottom of it being flat. The roof slope could range from 1/4" per foot to 11" per foot slope. Does anyone know if this is possible in Revit.
