Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching walls to roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, I'd like to look at connecting the Wall Geometry to the Roof Geometry.…The file I have on the screen is called Attaching Walls.…And as you can see, over here on the left, the walls do not actually meet the roof object.…So they all stop here at whatever height they happen to be assigned to.…In this case, they're going up to the level.…But they don't go all the way up to the roof.…Now compare that to, this wall here that you can see actually goes up and follows…the slope of the roof. It's actually really easy to achieve that.…All you have to do is select the wall, or walls.…
And use this button right here to attach its top or base to the near by geometry.…Now we are going to do this with the roof, but you can actually do this with floor…slaps or with ceilings or with any geometry that runs horizontally.…So to make this a little easier I am going to select all four walls, so I am…going to highlight one, press my Tab key. That'll highlight all four walls, and then…remember when you're doing a chain selection with your Tab key don't forget…

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 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
