I'm not sure if this is where I should be posting this, but I couldn't find a better thread. I am trying to create a theater for a school project and I am having trouble figuring out how to show the auditorium area. I've attached a jpeg of how it looks in section (done in AutoCad with ease), but I am not having any success with Revit on this matter which kills me in that I've created the rest of the building in about 3 hours based off of my bubble diagrams. I digress...Can anyone help me out on this? Thanks.

...(done in AutoCad with ease)...

You'll be laughing at this in about a month Smile

 

Elaborate a bit on what you are wanting. I'm assuming you want to make a sloped floor, which can easily be accomplished with either the Slope Arrows in the floor sketching mode or by specifying a negative offset of the floor perimeter line on the lower end of the floor sketch.

 

If you have no clue what I'm talking about, please do NOT be afraid to ask for clarification. I will be more than happy to step through this later when I am at home. For now there are deadlines to be met. Smile

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Thanks a lot. I actually found another site before seeing your response that was also helpful. Like you said, I am laughing about this (it took less than a month, though!). Now having the solution, it alsmost seems as though it is simpler than doing it in AutoCad, but once you get used to the complexities of AC, it is hard to think about a drawing being done with ease! If I had spent the time learning Revit that I spent learning AC, I would be a pro in half the time. I'm loving this. Thanks again for the help. I've also put the link to the other explanation in the event that someone would like to use it.

Give it time and it will not only seem like it's easier in Revit, but you'll be wondering how you ever managed with just AutoCAD Smile  You'll just need to get past the "But AutoCAD does it this way" things that Revit does have about it.

 

Welcome to the wild side.  Why spend time drawing when you can spend time designing!?

Same procss for swimming pools with sloping bottoms (and most do) and the side walls attach to the floors. 

I agree with rkitek that it becomes easier and easier as you know how the program thinks and you know not to waste time on some of the simple things Revit can not do, like use a,b,c... as revision marks.  I wander how much time we have spent trying to work that one out?  'it must be there somewhere' :-)

With Revit Architecture 2008, there are some really nice new floor tools that help create nice floors (split regions, multiple slopes, etc.)
