i have a roof that a simple roof-by-footprint cant handle. the slope of each component is not perpendicular to the edge of the roof. what is the best way to create an roof like this. it has an irregular footprint, and 5 faceted sides, each with a different slope. are there any ideas? thank you

I can think of two quick ways you can model it. Either model in separate pieces and then join the pieces together, or model it as an inplace roof family using solids and voids.

i've built all the sections of a roof that actually do have a side that defines the slope, then exported them to autocad.  for the sections that have a cross-slope (no edge that defines the slope) i trace their perimter in autocad with a 3d polyline & then extrude it.  from there, you can inport it inside of creating a mass, then convert it to a roof by face.  this will at least allow you to assign the same properties to this part of the roof as the others that were created inside revit.  if you manage your exports and imports carefully, you can keep it fairly streamlined so you can edit the imported sections as needed.  hopt this helps.
