    Coupe on rooftop.

    I have no idea what this would be called in english, but in Belgium it's called a coupe.
    Being an MEP user, I'm not sure how I would make this in revit.
    Would it be an item that I'd model as an in place family (as a once off in the project) or make a re-usable family? If I'm to make a re-usable family, which template do I begin with?
    A little perplexed how to begin with this one.

    It's a structure of steel beams and glass mostly.

    Create a pyramid mass then apply a curtain system to the faces...adjust the curtain grids and mullion sizes as needed....no family needed...

    Way too much work.
    It's a simple sloped roof made out of slope glazing.

    I don't know what it's called in english either but coupe sounds cooler than a pyramid rooflight.

    I'd just make it as a sloped roof as suggested above - I'd think that's easier than a family. Depends if you need to model the steel beams as structural beams, or you can use the mullions as beams instead.

    I'm about to leave work...to continue working at home.

    The item doesn't need to have any structural info. The mullions / beams simply need to be in the correct place to ensure no clashes.
    Thanks guys! I may have this thing beat now!

    I believe this special type of glazed cupola is called a Roof Lantern.

    Here is a revit family from manufacturer:

    The glazed roof trick did it! I could also duplicate and customize the mullions and beams as required and move them into postion (as built) no problem!
    The building looks far better than I ever expected and most importantly the people who need impressing (my boss) is impressed.
    Thanks for all the advice and help guys!

    It's extremely un-intuitive but you can make it by sweeping a triangle centered in a square. The square is the path
