Creating a Roof with Varying Wall Plate Heights

Not all walls are created equal. Quite often wall heights around the perimeter of a building or house have different bearing heights for the roof system. This can be challenging when time to make the roof. In the tutorial link provided below the roof is broken up into parts and sketched over top of a rough 2D roof plan. This may be more of a residential design issue however all REVIT users will come across this problem at one time. Finished Roof 2D Roof Plan Below are links to a CADCLIP outlining at least one fool proof way of creating a semi-complex roof with varying wall heights around the perimeter as shown above. You can right click the links below and "save target as.." to download.
