    roof to wall

    AutoSave_biblio2.jpgAutoSave_biblio.jpgAutoSave_biblio3.jpg
    anyone knows how to do this roof type where the roof extends to become the wall in revit architecture? i was able to represent it in sketchup

    If I had it already done in Sketchup, I would try to import it into Revit.

      Or maybe start a new in-place mass, import the SKP and then use the in-place mass to create a Roof by "Roof by face"
      (Not 100% sure that you can actually use a SKP to create roof by face, but it´s worth a shot)

      If the above dosnt work, and you want a native Revit Roof, I´d suggest that you model the shape from scratch, either as an conseptual mass or an in-place mass, and THEN use the Roof By Face.

      It would also be possible to use the "Roof By Extrusion" to create this, but you´ll have to create quite a few roofs, and you´ll need some inplace "roof voids" to get the shape needed in plan view.

        Create a Conceptual Mass and apply Wall to all faces needed. You could try to apply a roof to, but this won't work with the standard settings. This because the roof edge will be cutted vertically in the standard settings. The right order to do this would be:
        1 Create Roof by Face
        2. Set Rafter Cut to 2-cut Square
        3. Pick Faces and create roof.

        You can pick multiple faces so the roof will become 1 entity. If this doesn't work you'll have to use walls.

          I might suggest this...create a wall type that is the same construction as your roof type. Then use roofs and wall as you normally would. You might then just create a wall sweep, or roof fascia, to create that smooth blended radius that the SU model shows.

            Use roof by extrusion.
            Draw walls with same material composition.
            Use allgitn tool in plan and sections to allign wall with roof.
            Then use vertical opening to cut the form in plan for the roof.
            Hope this helps. Have played a lot with these shapes and find this one of the best ways to get these translated if you are not a smooth operator on the Massing side.
            That obviously is the more accurate way.

            Cheers

                You really have too much time on your hands...

                Seriously though: I always get into trouble with coordinating the different roofparts. That's why I decided to start using the Massing tool (and yes, this does take some time to figure out). Also, Roof by Extrusion only let's you draw in a straight extrusion. Get's a bit problematic if you have diverging walls and stuff.

                    tried with roof by extrusion and just as Mdradvies said the roof ends up being straight all though my plan is a bit inclined
