Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with slope arrows, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
There is one more way that we can create slope in a roof or even in a floor…slab, and that's using something called a slope arrow.…So I am in a file called Slope Arrows,…and slope arrows are typically used when the slope that you want to define…doesn't run perpendicular to the edge.…So another way to state that is when we used the Slope Defining check box in the…previous movies, it was turning that edge of the sketch into a piano hinge.…So if I select this roof right here and I edit the footprint, if I select one of…these edges and turn on Defines Slope, it's kind of like this is a hinge.…
But, I am going to turn that off.…What if the slope doesn't run perpendicular to that edge?…It doesn't hinge on that edge, it runs at another angle.…That's really where a slope arrow can be a very handy thing.…With the slope arrow, you just simply draw this arrow and the arrow has two points;…it's got a low point and a high point.…And you define what those points are and then the slope of the roof will…follow along that arrow.…
