Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with footprint roofs, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Revit offers us a few different ways that we can create roofs.…In this movie, I will look at the Footprint Roof option.…Footprint Roof option is very similar to creating floor slabs that we looked at in…the last movie. We sketch them out as a 2D sketch and we…do that sketch in a plan view. Now, I'm here in a file called Footprint…Roof, and I'm currently in the Level 1 floor plan.…Now, there's actually two roof plans in this file.…There's a High Roof and a Low Roof. And so I'm going to double-click the High Roof.…To make sure that I'm working in that view.…
Now the high roof is the left-hand portion of the building and the low roof is over…here on the right. So we'll start with the high one.…On the Architecture tab we have our Roof button.…Now, if you use the drop-down, it's actually Roof by Footprint that you want.…Or, that's actually the default button that you can just click right here if you prefer.…That takes me to Sketch mode, we've talked a little bit about this in the last movie,…the drawing window grace out to a half tone, the Ribbon Tab (UNKNOWN) is greenish colour.…

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
