Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching walls to roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
In this movie I'd like to look at connecting the wall geometry to the roof geometry.…The file I have on the screen is called Attaching Walls.…And as you can see, over here on the left, the walls do not actually meet the roof objects.…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, it 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 can actually 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…
