Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating extrusion roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Footprint roofs discussed in our previous movie…are probably the easiest way to create a roof,…and they certainly are the easiest way to get…the most common forms like hips and gables,…however, there's lots of other shapes of roofs…that we can create and in some cases,…you'll want to create a roof that's not…easily achieved with footprint room.…So in this movie, I'd like to look at the extrusion roof.…This is a good choice for roofs that are barrel vaults…or that are curving in one direction, and so on.…So in this case, I'm going to create an awning…that's gonna go on the front of this small building here.…
Now it's actually on the other side of the building,…over here, and I'm gonna use my view cube…over here in the corner to change my orientation,…so the way the view cube works is,…you just highlight the area of the cube that…you want to navigate to,…and in this case, I can use the little corner right here…and if I click that, it'll spin the view around…and show me that I have this little patio on the back side.…

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.
