    Sloping parapet?

    Hey all,
    Is there a way to make a parapet slope with the roof other than cutting the wall profile?

    TIA

    Yep, edit the wall profile. Go to an elevation view, select the wall, then edit profile (up in the ribbon). You will see some pink sketch lines for the wall outline. You can resketch it to whatever you want. If you draw a closed loop with in the main boundry, it will be a hole.

    :banghead: There's an easier way. Just select the wall and attach it to the roof. It will take on the roof slope as long as they intersect. If not, use the above method.

    I've been working in Autocrap all day on an old project, so my mind isn't in Revit mode. I hate Acad :banghead:

      Thanks. Is there a way to make the slope "smart" to match the roof slope (in case the slope changes?) like an attach with offset or something?

        Yep, see my post above. I edited it while you were sending your response.

          Smart to roof pitch, no don't think so. But edit profile of wall and attach to locked Ref planes (locked to top of roof) will give you smart with height and width changes.
          I assume by parapet you mean your wall finishes above the roofline ?

          If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

            OK just tried adding a dimension (locked) while in edit wall profile locking pink line to roof (not using any ref planes) and works fine when changing Roof Pitch.
            So now the answer is Yes there is a smart way !!

                  Second that! And added some REP!
                  oh crap. No rep since I nominated you first... But I'm thinking REP!REP!REP! so maybe someone else comes along and fixes it.
