Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding dormers, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
Dormers are a common architectural feature.…You can create them in Revit without too much trouble, but there are some…specific steps that you need to follow to create them successfully.…So in this movie, we will look at the complete process to create dormers.…Now, I am in a file called Dormers.…It is a completed version of the file we were working on in the last movie, and…you can see I have gone around and finished all of the walls and updated them…to the roofs, and even added new roofs in some cases.…And over here in this area, I've created three out of the four dormers already,…and I've provided the three walls that we need to create the fourth dormer.…
So, the first step is of course to build your little shack on top of the roof…for the vertical wall portions of the dormer.…So we'll start with those. And you can actually work in 3D or 2D; it's…really your preference.…But I am going to go ahead and do this right in this 3D view here.…I am going to go to the Roof by Footprint command.…And because I'm working in 3D, it will want to know what level to put the roof at.…
