Creating Roofs with Cappings within Revit and Revit LT

Nov 24

We often get asked how to create ridge cappings for simple residential roofs within Revit and Revit LT.

This video tutorial shows how to create the framing “zone”, cladding, barge/ridge cappings in a quick and easy way by using the copy/paste tools and then editing the roof. Then add fasicas and gutters.

​Note that the "additional" roofs created using this method do not update if the exterior walls move (but the first roof created does). Our suggestion would be to either only create the additional roofs once your house design has settled down; or if you want them all to move with the exterior walls, create each roof from scratch using the same methods as shown in the video except for the "copy/paste" parts.
