Introduction In Revit Architecture, roofs can be placed by three methods: Roof by Footprint, Roof by Extrusion, and Roof by Face. Roof by Footprint and Roof by Extrusion are explained in this chapter, along with instructions on modifying and creating roofs and placing ceilings. NOTE: Roof by Face is used to place a roof on any surface of a Mass model. Instructions on how to use this feature are covered in Chapter 15 on Massing & Site.
ROOF BY FOOTPRINT Follow along with EXERCISE 7-1 in your textbook
Roof by Footprint button & Defines Slope check box Roof by Footprint button Defines Slope check box
ROOF BY FOOTPRINT Follow along with EXERCISE 7-1 in your textbook Select ROOF settings in the Properties dialog box
Slope field Finish Edit Mode button
Default 3D View & Shadows Sun Path Shadows Button
Roof by Footprint
MODIFYING A ROOF BY FOOTPRINT Edit Footprint toolbar NOTE: The Defines Slope check box determines whether you have a roof slope or not. If the check box is checked, you will see an angle and slope rise number. If the check box is unchecked, you will not see an angle and slope number next to a roof line. Defines Slope check box
MAKING A WALL MEET A ROOF Attach Top/Base button Wall attached to the roof

CREATING A HOLE IN A ROOF NOTE: Be sure that all the lines in the circle and rectangles do not have slope angles. If they do, select the lines, and uncheck the Defines Slope check box in the Options Bar. Modify | Roofs toolbar Edit Footprint button Modify | Roofs > Edit Footprint Toolbar. Finish Edit Mode button
MODIFYING A ROOF SLAB BY MOVING VERTICES Modify | Roofs toolbar Corner of roof moves upward
Shape of roofs changed crossing point moved Modified roof Shape of roofs changed Split Line drawing
Multiple roof line changes TIP: A node is formed everywhere that one Split Line crosses another. You can move these nodes in Plan view with your keyboard arrow keys; change their height by clicking on them and entering a dimension. You can also go back into Edit ( Sketch Mode ), and change the exterior perimeter shape of the roof.

C H A P T E R OBJECTIVES Learn how to create a floor by Face. Learn how to place a floor by Walls. Learn how to create a Floor Family. Learn how to add a Floor Slab Edge. Learn how to use the Edit Cut Profile tool.
Introduction In Revit Architecture, Floor objects are horizontal slabs that are very similar to Roofs. These slabs can be used for any horizontal purpose such as countertops, ceilings, and so on. As with Walls and Roofs, Floors can be configured with components such as structure, floor finishes, carpet, and so on. You typically want to create a floor in a floor plan view. Floors are, by default, offset downward from the level on which they are placed. The Floor Properties dialog box.
