Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an in-place roof by blend, part of Building Roofs with Revit.
…Okay.…So we can extrude a roof straight back.…We can model a roof straight down.…We can even model a roof from the side.…What if none of these options alone cut it?…We have to think outside the box sometimes.…By creating a roof blend, we're actually allowing Revit to contort the roof in…a few different directions allowing us to create slopes and…radial shapes all blended into one.…To get started, let's jump into our Revit Roofs file.…The first thing I'd like to do is go to our floor plan.…
3 roof.…We're going to make two reference plans.…On the Architecture tab, let's click the Reference Plane button.…Let's all set it two feet.…In the Draw panel, we're going to click our Pick Lines button.…I'm going to go two feet to the left.…While we're at it, let's go to the back side.…Let's create one two feet to the right.…Let's hit Escape and zoom out.…Let's zoom in on our front reference plane and select it.…Let's go to the properties.…And for the name, let's go ahead and give it a name of front.…
Click Apply.…Let's go to the one in back.…
