    Curved mass with compund curve roof

    I'm trying to find a way to create this mass in Revit. The shape is a closed loop with vertical sides, but the roof curves up and down on both the inner and outer edges. I've tried playing around with swept blends and voids, but I'm not having much luck. I think part of the issue is that there are some radii that are smaller than the profile size would need to be. I'd love to get some ideas from those of you who do a lot more of this kind of work.

    Multiple roofs by footprint...that way you can align and adjust as needed. Which is the way it would probably be built.

    Think of where the beams would be located and a roof between each beam. Could probably do it with a conceptual mass as well where each corner can be adjustable.

    This is for a proposal so a quick and dirty roof by footprint with shape edits might do the job, but I'd still like to figure out how to actually make this as a mass. That was by first thought for sure, but I was having a lot of trouble actually getting anything in the mass editor to resemble the shape I was looking for. Can you provide any more detail than "mass"?

    Place points on a line, and then you can select the points as work planes. -when you select the (Path)line and the shapes you drew on those work planes, "create form", you'll get a sweep ( or rather a loft.)



    After that, you can manipulate the shape, add edges and profiles, but that only works with open-ended paths, not closed.

    That's what I've been trying, but I think the issue I'm having is some sections of the path have radii that are too tight for the size profile I need. It will need to be a closed path eventually as well.
