    Red face How to create a klip-lok Roof in revit

    Hi All,

    Im very new to revit, just transitioned from Autocad! and needing a little help

    I have created a roof by footprint using the Basic Roof - generic 125mm roof provided in revit 2019 however i want to change the roof construction to a klip-lok roof so it is represents the correct material and profile in the 3D model...

    Any ideas how this can be achieved?

    Thank you in advance

    I'm assuming Klip-Lok is a standing seam roof? Google tells me it is the Lysaght product: https://www.lysaght.com/products/klip-lok-classic-700 but it has lied to me in the past

    Lysaght has some content on their site: https://professionals.lysaght.com/re...s/cad-drawings It looks like they are profiles - so you would need to convert it into a family.

    That said - for standing seam roofs I usually use sloped glazing with a custom mullion for the seams. You can read a bit about it here: https://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2...Id-100332.html

    Chad, yes kliplok is like standing seam and is very popular for commercial applications in Aus.

    Can you put metal deck profiles into roofs like you can with structural floors?

    edit, I guess not, but I'd rather do this (see link) unless I needed to render it - and as long as the profile still showed up in non perpendicular cuts! (ie vertical section, sloped profile)

    I make all my standing seam roofs with sloped glazing. The ribs are mullions, the flat sections are the panels. I only show the major ribs since the minor ones won't show enough to make up for the increased complexity.

    If you want the render appearance and profile etc, go to www.steelselect.com. You can download the adsklib there flr all lysaght cladding products as well as gutter profiles etc. Great resource, pity Michael who developed it has moved on but it is still there.

    Here let's make it easy. Swap out the mullion profile for whatever you want.
