Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with extrusion roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
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 cables.…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 a footprint roof.…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 and…awning that going to go on this small building here.…
Now, it's actually on the other side of the building over here, and I'm going to…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 and if I click that it will spin the view around and show me that I…had this little patio on the back side. Let me zoom in a little bit.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:

Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
