Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating footprint roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Revit offers us a few different ways…that we can create roofs.…In this movie, I will look at the Footprint Roof option.…Footprint Roof option is very similar…to creating floor slabs that we looked at…in the last movie.…We sketch them out as a 2D sketch…and we do that sketch in a plan view.…Now I'm here in a file called Footprint Roof,…and I'm currently in the Level 1 floor plan.…Now there's actually two roof plans in this file,…there's a High Roof and a Low Roof,…and so I'm gonna double-click the High Roof…to make sure that I'm working in that view.…
Now the High Roof is the left-hand portion of the building,…and the Low Roof is over here on the right.…So we'll start with the High one.…On the Architecture tab, we have our Roof button,…now if you use the drop-down,…it's actually Roof by Footprint that you want,…or that's actually the default button…that you can just click right here if you prefer.…That takes me into sketch mode,…we talked a little bit about this in the last movie.…The drawing window grays out to a half-tone,…

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.
