    Cone

    Can anyone create a cone like this in Revit ?

    I'm sure there are better ways to do this, but here is my first try:
    1. Generic Model family
    2. Swept blend based on angled Reference Line
    3. Make a circular ref line on horizontal plane for guide only
    4. Bottom of Swept Blend is ellipse - warp to suit
    5. Top of blend is a tiny circle - parameter has been added, you can get quite small before it 'breaks'

    See attached file.

    I think there must be a nice way to do this with a Conceptual form.

      Yep, use a really small circle for the top, larger circle for th bottom, and then push the top circle to the side before or after creating the form. The point of the cone won't be a true point anyway when built.

        I wonder if there is any way to do this by using Conceptual Mass ?

          I think you are still going to have to create it with 2 circles. the top one can be pretty samll so it basically looks like a cone. It just does not converge to a singular point. Here is an example one I did with a small radius circle at the top.

            Use a revolve in either the massing or generic model family. Draw the rotation axis at an angle and use a void to cut the bottom. This way you'll have a real cone with a point. It think it'stime that Autodesk ads a very necessary cap function to Revit.

              Thank you very much. The problem was totally resolved.
