Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching walls to roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we're gonna look at…attaching the walls to the roof.…As you can see, there's a big gap at the top of our walls…where they don't meet the roof,…and there's a real simple fix for that.…If you select any wall and look over here on the ribbon,…there's an Attach Top/Base command and we can…use that to attach to roofs, or floors, or other geometry.…Now we could do them one wall at a time,…but it's gonna be a little nicer if we…make a selection of all the walls we need.…So I'm gonna deselect that wall, and then I'll…highlight another wall, press "tab", and get it to do…the chain all the way around.…
Now a lot of folks make the mistake now of…just sort of saying, "Yeah, that's what I want" and then…moving away and nothing's selected.…So remember, it's highlight, tab, click.…So I'm gonna highlight, tab, and then I'm gonna click.…Now make sure that you're getting the chain…that's underneath the high roof only.…If I move my mouse slightly, notice that it comes out…and it kind of selects the chain…all the way around the building.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
