While we use the term "flat roof," it's not the case literally, which is a key distinction in Revit Architecture. You'll need to start with a totally flat roof and then add in the slight angles which allow for drainage. Knowing how to do this is a great starting point for working on more complex roof designs. Watch this online video to see how to use the shape Edit tools to create a flat roof in Revit Architecture 2015.
…Roofs come in all sorts of shapes and…varieties, but many buildings have simple, flat roofs.…So in this movie, I would like look at some of…the techniques we can use to create a simple, flat roof.…Now even a flat roof has some sort of sloping.…It's not completely flat.…In an early schematic design you can get away with just doing a flat…slab without any slope and it will be representational enough, but at some point…in the design you're probably going to want to start modeling the actual slope…so that you get a more accurate…representation of what's really going to be there.…So I'm in a file called Flat Roof and…I want to look specifically at the Shape Editing tools…that are available on roof slabs that will allow…us to sculpt the drainage sloping for a flat roof.…
There's kind of a lot of pieces that need to fit together correctly in order…for this technique to work, so let's…sort of try and walk through this systematically.…If I select this roof right here, okay, this is just a pretty typical flat roof.…
