Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying a roof for structure, part of Building Roofs with Revit.
…We've been using some pretty generic roofing systems, haven't we?…What we need to do is make the roof a lot more realistic as to…what is actually used in the real world.…The objective of this video is to modify our generic roof to…have a half-inch plywood, roofing felt, and some asphalt shingles.…We'll then push our roof up eight inches,…to accommodate the framing that will be supporting it.…So let's get started.…In the Revit roof model, go ahead and select your roof.…Go to the properties tab, let's click on edit type.…
Let's click rename.…Let's call it half inch plywood with shingles.…Let's click OK.…For the structure, let's hit edit in the value column.…Instead of structure, let's go ahead and call it a substrate.…Let's click into the Material category, let's grab the Builder button right here.…For the material type in plywood, select Plywood Sheathing.…For the cut pattern, let's click where it says pattern.…Let's scroll down until we see, you guessed it, Plywood.…
Let's hit OK.…Let's hit OK.…For the thickness, let's give it one half inch.…
