Extrusion roofs, which protrude past the walls in a building, must be created in a slightly different way than ordinary footprint roofs in Revit Architecture. The software treats an extrusion roof as a vertical rather than horizontal object. While you have much more flexibility when designing the roof, you may need to double-check that it is aligned to the wall if that's your intention. Find out how to work with extrusion roofs in Revit Architecture 2015 in this online video.
…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 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 an awning, that…is going to on the front of 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 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.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
