    How to create sloped walls

    Hi everyone,

    I need to create an underground deposit that looks like a funnel. I've created the 4 walls and the floor, but I don't know how to create the inclined walls on the edge. I work with Revit Structure 2012.
    Here is what I need:

    Not sure if this applies to RST too, but in RAC you'd have to create a mass first, and then apply the sloped walls to the mass.

    But... Are the sloped parts really walls, or could it be part of the floor? It´s pretty easy and fast to add split lines to a floor, and get the shape you want...

      It would be nice not too see the connection between walls and the floor.
      I don't know how to work with Masses.

        You can achieve that by:
        1. Making sure that the wall and floor structure is made of the same material and have the same function (type settings)
        2. Join the base of the walls to the floor below.

          Is there somewhere I can see (read) how to split the floor?

            Was gonna point you to the Autodesk Wiki for that info... But didn't find any topics on the subject... But maybe the attached will explain at least the basics?

            :beer:

            Edit: Forgot the attachment, but see that Martijn already covered the same things

              Select the floor, in the Modify | Floor-tab a few options are available. Amongst them "Add Split Line" (image 1)
              After selecting that option, draw the Split Lines as needed. I drew a rectangle inside the floor field
              To finish drawing, hit Esc once (!) Now you have an image as shown in image 2. The little squares can be used to change the form (image 3). Select them and give them a numerical height offset. In 3D / Elevation views you can also select them and then use the blue triangles to stretch them up and down. You can also move around the entire blue lines in the same manner. Select them and fill in a height offset.

                Here is the section of the wiki that talks about shape editing and adding split lines to a floor and/or a roof.

                    If you need to schedule this slope shape as wall, do an in-place component with standard forms, and set the category to wall.

                    otherwise, answers above will apply.

                    If you need to use it again, with parameters, think family.....my 2 cts

                    best of all, do it in-place, in edit mode, make a group, select the group, save group as a family. it will get the wall category in your projects (I have to check, but I did that long time ago).
