Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with extrusion roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Footprint roofs discussed in our previous movie are probably the easiest way to…create a roof and they certainly are the easiest way to get the most common…forms, like hips and gables.…However, there's lots of other shapes of roofs that we can create and in some…cases you'll want to create a roof that's not easily achieved with a footprint roof.…So in this movie I'd like to look at the extrusion roof. This is a good choice…for roofs that are barrel vaults or that are curving in one direction, and so on.…So in this case I'm going to create an awning that's going to go on the front of…this small building here.…
Now it's actually on the other side of the building over here, and I'm going to…use my view cube over here in the corner to change my orientation.…So the way the view cube works is you just highlight the area of the cube that…you want to navigate to, and in this case I can use the little corner right here,…and if I click that, it'll spin the view around and show me that I have this…little patio on the backside.…
