Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with slope arrows, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie I'd like to talk about slope arrows.…Slope arrows offer an alternative way…to create sloping that does not require the slope…to follow perpendicular to any of the roof or floor edges.…We can use slope arrows with roofs…but we can also use it with floors and ceilings as well.…So let me do a simple example over here…using this currently flat footprint roof.…Now when we edit the footprint…and select an edge and turn on Defines Slope,…when we think about that, what that's actually doing…is turning that edge into a hinge,…and so the slope actually runs perpendicular…to that direction.…
Well what if you want the slope…to run in a different direction?…You don't want it perpendicular to that edge.…Well this is where a slope arrow can be really handy.…So I'm gonna select the Slope Arrow button right here…and the first point of the slope arrow…has to touch the sketch in some way.…It can be anywhere on the perimeter,…but I'm gonna go right from corner to corner here.…Then, with that still selected,…I'll come over here and I'll change…

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.
