Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Roofs come in all sorts of shapes and varieties,…but many buildings have simple flat roofs,…so in this movie I'd like to look at some of the techniques…we can use to create a simple flat roof.…Now even a flat roof has some sort of sloping,…it's not completely flat.…In an early schematic design you can get away…with just doing a flat slab without any slope…and it will be representational enough,…but at some point in the design…you're probably gonna wanna start modeling…the actual slope so that you get a more accurate…representation of what's really gonna be there.…So I'm in a file called Flat Roof…and I wanna look specifically at the Shape Editing tools…that are available on roof slabs…that will allow us to sculpt the drainage sloping…for a flat roof.…
There's kind of a lot of pieces that need…to fit together correctly…in order for this technique to work,…so let's sort of try and walk through this systematically.…If I select this roof right here,…this is just a pretty typical flat roof,…it's called Insulation on Metal Deck…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
