    sloped wall joined to sloped roof

    Ok, so here is my conceptual mass that I used to generate the walls (by face) and roof (which is actually a wall)

    Works fine for the most part with wall by face, and i've sorted out the joints for the most part, but here revit does somthing weird, how do I make the roof's end flush with the wall?

    And that diagonal line looks hideous, I can't seem to alter the wall joints here, any tips? should I construct this a different way?

    Im only on my phone so the images are a bit hard to see. Im guessing "And that diagonal line looks hideous.." you mean the mitred condition between roof and wall? Seeing as you used walls for thw roof can you join geometry to hide the join? If you want a separate butt joint (beam on post) look maybe create the roof from a new mass surface which encompasses the full extenet. Or just use a system roof family outside the massing family.

    Yes, it's the mitred join, i can't seem to grab the joint with the wall joins tool (works only in plan view?), joining does not help either. I remade the wall and roof using the in-place component tool, that way I could make a clean joint, however the walls are dumb now, no layers within the wall. And mostly irritating is that I can't re-align the pattern (panels) without moving the whole object, as if the pattern i stuck!

    Not sure how to apply your suggestions? I tried the roof tool, same thing there, the ends are squared, and not in flush with the wall angle.

    Yes the wall joins tool will only work in plan.
    If you go back into edit mode the surface pattern lines should move on their own.
    I realise now you want the whole piece of geometry to be clean single item. The only other thing i can think of right now while having a few saturday night brewskies would be to make the whole thing as roof by extrusion where you can actually use layers and keep it (relatively) parametric
