    Question How to Roof Merge/Join to Lower Roof!!

    I made the roof work but it doesn't want to Join.

    prior to making it a metal roof by using Sloped Glazing from a standard 4" Generic roof, It looked ok by sitting next to, or in line with the lower roof as all you saw was a line.

    I am using revit 2011

    Also if ther is another way to make a dbl slope roof insted of doing to roofs please let me know what you have found.

    And why can I not have it to were I design the roof just like a truss co./the way it will be built in real life, am I missing something? Look at the lower roof as it is designed under and into the living area.

    Thanks for all the help!
    Any questions let me know...

    Hi crhdesign, and welcome to the Forum

    Short question: Do you really need the metal seems to be modeled? Or could you just apply a model pattern to a basic roof type, and apply a material with the seems for renderings?

    Hey thanks! From what I find on this Forum, it's the best...

    Actually from what I found it took me 5 mins to make that roof; compared to making 3-4 roofs and join them, with different styles, etc. to make it look like a real standing seem.

    But in reality I don't need it to look perfect I need it to represent what it going on. So yes a Material (I thought) would be the best if you could help me on that part. Also if client changes his mind on roof Material, it's a click and you can reshow it.

    Question will the Material show up in elevations too?

    (I'm not sure what or how In-Line works, sorry)

    Thanks for help

    The material should be pretty straight forward:

    • Create a new material
    • Assign or create a fit model pattern for the surface
    • Apply the render appearance material (search for "standing seem")
    • Make the necessary changes to the render material, e.g. spacing of the seems (size of image used)


    Hope this get┤s you on the right track, if not I can post a more detailed explanation later.

    Thanks for the help, I will try that and see what I get from that part for the Material.

    Back to the 1st question I had was how to make the roof merge/Join from 2 different levels? Can I even do this?
    (if you use the revit file i attached above and put roof back to regular roof you should see how they line up but dont join)

    Thanks for any help on that.

    My take on this: you're probably better of by making a Mass with the roof form first, and then create a Roof by Face from that.

    Ordinarily, if you have created the two roofs separately, the Join Roof Tool works like a charm to join the two roofs together. The end of the lower roof which is to be joined to the main roof is modelled as a gable end and the tool sorts out the resultant valleys etc.

    I suspect, but not entirely certain that the reason it won't work in this instance is due to the modelled roof profile. I did a quick test and modelled two generic roofs in your file, with one 2' lower than the main roof. When doing so, the roof join tool worked as expected.

    Ian.Kidston, thanks for the reply.

    Already the Low Sloped sides do Join to other lower sloped roof just fine. Take a look at what the issues are prior to the Standing Seem roof i had shown before below...

    How to Roof Merge/Join to Lower Roof!!-project01-roof-problem02.jpg

    Shows how roofs are not Joining

    How to Roof Merge/Join to Lower Roof!!-project01-roof-problem-showing-roof-under-upper-roof.jpg

    Shows how I have to have a closed system to make the roof look ok on the outside but inside it is incorrect.


    Project1 test to Revitfourum.rvt

    Better Revit file to see what I mean, on the 3D view and also Plan View (@ Roof Level 3)
