- [Voiceover] In this movie…we're going to talk about slope arrows.…Slope arrows offer an alternative way…to create slope in your roof elements…and they also work equally well in floors and ceilings.…Now, typically the most useful place to use a slope arrow…is when the slope does not actually run perpendicular…to the edge of the roof.…Now, you may recall that when we worked with sloping roofs,…and I'm just going to select this roof…and do edit footprint,…that we were able to select one or more edges…and turn on define slope.…
And essentially what that does is,…it makes this edge a hinge…and then the roof plane will react accordingly.…But a way to think about that is that…the slope actually runs either along the hinge,…or perpendicular to the hinge,…depending on how you want to think about that.…Now, let me click the cancel here to discard that sketch.…Well, what if the slope didn't run along that edge?…Perhaps it wants to run along the diagonal…of this footprint here.…Well, let me do edit footprint.…And to achieve that,…

First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
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 drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
