Hi have had Revit for a while but am now just being trained in its use. Have been to one training session out of 3 so have a long way to go. Second was posponed because the trainer was ill.

Problem is I have committed the Use of the programme for a clients project and am doing very well so far. I am at the roof stage with almost everything else done. When I put the roof on which is a traditional dual pitched roof I am getting stuck. Can any one give me an idiots guide to putting on my roof. I have the gables drawn in.

Assistance appreciated

Simon

Can you tell us which bit exactly you are having a problem with.

 

In a nutshell:

-Make sure you're on an appropriate Level to start with

-Select "Roof"

-Choose a method for defining ie "By Footprint", "Using Sketch Lines", etc, etc

-Tell Revit about the roof you want (ie sketch it's plan, set slopes, set roof type, etc

 -Let Revit make the Roof

Regards,

Ian

Thnaks for the reply.

Initially it was drawing a dual pitched roof but have resolved that from one of the other threads. The problem that I am still having is where one roof intersects with another forming the valley. Having drawn this I end up with the two roofs passing through on another.

Soffits are no problem: Just enter the soffit width you want into the "Overhang" box (on the Options Bar, when you're in "Roof Mode"Winking.

A good way to get upto speed with Revit is to read....

http://students2.autodesk.com/ama/orig/RAC-2008-CurriculaLectureNotes_Final.pdf

 Covers all the fundamentals.

 If you got anything specific on roofs you need help with- give me a shout and I'll try and squeeze in some extra step-by-step tutorials.

Regards,Ian
