Modeling Ramps

A typical stair consist of Runs, Landing, Supports and Railing. These elements can be independently controlled as well as are connected with each other. For example, if you remove the staircase, railing on the stairs will automatically be deleted. You can model stairs assembling Run Component or by sketching them.

Roof in Revit can be created using different methods, depending on the needs of your design. You can create a roof by,

  • a building footprint
  • as an extrusion
  • with sloped glazing
  • from a mass instance

Roof is also a compound structure whose material and thickness can be edited using Edit Assembly dialog box in its Type properties similar to Walls and Floors. To learn more about Compound structures, please click here.

Sloped Glazing Roof

There are two roof system families in Revit: Basic Roof and Sloped Glazing. Basic roofs are compound roof structures made of several layers. Sloped Glazing roofs on the other hand are like curtain walls used for a roof. Sloped Glazing roofs, like curtain walls, host curtain panels, grids, and mullions.
