By default, a wall in Revit Architecture displays its assigned height, regardless of whether it connects with the associated roof. You'll need to manually mark it as attaching to the roof. You can do this on all sides of the building simultaneously and have the settings automatically update if you change the roof angle later on. Find out how to attach walls to roofs in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…In this movie I'd like to look at…connecting the wall geometry to the roof geometry.…The file I have onscreen is called Attaching Walls, and as you can see,…over here on the left, the walls do not actually meet the roof object.…So they all stop here at whatever height…they happen to be assigned to, in this case…they're going up to the level, but they don't go all the way up to the roof.…Now compare that to this wall here that you can…see actually goes up and follows the slope of the roof.…It's actually really easy to achieve that.…All you have to do is select the wall or walls.…
And use this button right here to attach its top or base to the nearby geometry.…Now we're going to do this with a roof but you could do this…with floor slabs, or with ceilings, or with any geometry that runs horizontally.…So, to make this a little easier, I'm going to select all…four walls, so I'm going to highlight one, press my Tab key.…That'll highlight all four walls.…And then remember, when you're doing a chain…selection with your Tab key, don't forget to click.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
