Creating a Roof in Dynamo for Revit

Is there a Roof Types node and something like a Roof.ByCurveAndLevel in Dynamo?

If not how do you go about creating a roof using one of the roof types from the revit document.

I typed ‘Roof’ into the search in Dynamo as well as the ‘Primer’ but there is nothing. Looks like you can not make a roof in Revit by using Dynamo.

Hi @Jay_Polding

Have a look at the “FootPrintRoofClass” in Revit API http://www.revitapidocs.com/2016/97eb52e6-5dfd-86b3-708d-aabcda389f4a.htm

Thanks for the reply (and for archi-lab tools, they are awesome). Still, looks like there are no OOTB Dynamo nodes which make a roof.

Okay, you’re making it too easy for me. I appreciate it for sure. I guess I’m just trying to make a philosophical point (to Autodesk) that Dynamo requires too much coding knowledge to do even ‘simple’ things.

Hi! I got the same issue. The script works perfect when using the floor node but i cant do the same when replacing the floor one with Roof.ByOutlineTypeAndLevel and of course changing the floor type with a roof type. I always get a null result in the roof.byoutline node and cant get why. Is there anything else different to be done when you need to create a roof instead of a floor?

Thanks a lot
