For tray ceilings I typically use the Revit-native ceiling to all horizontal surfaces in the different planes and then use a short wall to connect them in the vertical. Hint: If you lock the ceiling edges to the wall edges then it makes editting the ceilings easier because you can just move the wall and the different ceilings adjust, otherwise you have to move the wall and then edit each adjacent ceiling profile to line them back up.

 

For vaulted ceilings (or any ceiling with angles or complicated shapes), I usually create a mass to form the faces that I need as a template and apply walls by face to the ceiling surfaces. Just make walls that are built like a ceiling. Hint: Ceiling-hosted families like canlights won't host to a ceiling made of wall unless you put them through a wall-hosted template.

for vaulted ceilings: you can create a ceiling in a reflected ceiling plan with the regular ceiling tool and then select it and edit, when you are in sketsh mode in the design bar you have a tool called a slope arrow, your first click is the tail the second click is the head, once you have the slope arrow in place, you can select it and in the properties set the height of the head and the tail and so create a "sloped" ceiling and then you can use all your ceiling based light fixtures. Hope this helps you Smile
