Revit Sample Family Files

Revit 2021 Sample Files Free Download

Explore sample Revit families.

All elements that you add to Revit projects are created with families. For example, the structural members, walls, roofs, windows, and doors that you use to assemble a building model, as well as the callouts, fixtures, tags, and detail components that you use to document it, are created with families. Use the Family Editor to modify existing elements or create new ones to meet the specific needs of a project.

Download the following sample family files to learn how families work, how to use the Family Editor, and how you can customize elements for projects. To download a file, click the file name. Open the family file in Revit.

Revit Roof Sample File

Revit 2021 Sample Files Free Download

Explore sample basic roof shapes in Revit.

The file contains examples of the following, as well as a building using a combination of roof types:

  • hip roof
  • gable roof
  • shed roof
  • basic flat roof
  • flat roof modified with a slope arrow
  • flat roof modified with shape editing
  • barrel vault

Download the sample file

  1. Click the file name: roof_sample_file.rvt
  2. Open the file in Revit.
  3. To interact with a roof in the sample project, select it in the drawing area, and click Edit Boundary to see the sketch of the roof.
    Note: For the example where the roof has been shape edited, the shape editing tools will display in the contextual tab of the ribbon.

Hip Roof

All edges of the sketch are set to be slope defining.

guid-1d80b816-2b57-4bf4-bcaa-7db74360d7a5-9490295 guid-56e2857a-22ae-466a-914e-faab869b51db-3267873

Gable Roof

2 edges of the sketch are set to be slope defining. The walls are attached to the roof so they will fill the gable ends of the roof.

guid-0f24643f-5930-4f8f-be3e-3a8405db0dba-9611716 guid-1b1a4dfc-9718-45ba-9dc2-d9ba4258e8ad-9456144

Shed Roof

1 edge of the sketch is set to be slope defining. All walls attach to the roof.

guid-6bd3743d-841c-4f4f-b4a6-995122bf3bdd-6640379 guid-74b46be3-b434-4558-9680-a6142420c9b0-3867467

Flat Roof

None of the edges are set to be slope defining. Roofs without any slope defining edges can be modified using shape editing tools. Shape editing tools are available when you select the roof element in the drawing area.

guid-28a20c36-b8ba-4a15-9c65-36a357cfa2cd-6054008 guid-1311ba93-86b1-4ce5-a17a-a491f81619d9-4256512

Slope Arrow

Use a slope arrow to create a slope on a roof. The slope arrow does not have to follow an edge and can be used on a portion of an edge. In this example, the slope arrow defines the slope of the roof from one corner to the other corner.

guid-69e97f68-8bdc-4fd7-9c62-8adac19b420b-5726016 guid-c990b939-475f-42dc-b47d-174d4379e378-7299701

Shape Edited Roof

Shape editing allows for points and edges to be positioned independently. In this example, a point is added to the center of the roof and then positioned lower to create a depressed area of the roof.

guid-da2054f3-1d77-4ce9-86b9-a99e9d4e9e82-2552751 guid-276a9f3a-8414-4f9f-9df6-33dd6bb1ea85-5948261

Barrel Vault

Roof by Extrusion extrudes based on the shape of a sketched edge. In this example, an arc is used as the sketched edge to create a barrel vault roof. Walls are attached to the roof element. Select the roof, and use the Edit Profile tool on the contextual tab to edit the sketch of the extruded roof.

guid-9a506fee-db8b-426a-a496-62f1a87eeee5-1661673 guid-b32ebf6c-9590-4876-b415-97aea89eb73d-2158082

Roof Sketch Modifications

Change the properties of sketch lines used in roof elements to affect the geometry. The slope of each roof edge can be set independently. Use the “Offset From Roof Base” property to create a “Dutch Hip” or set alternate eave heights for each side of the roof.

guid-23458db0-e6b8-411f-9b7b-7f8c1d2149d3-4284628 guid-a1e0d62e-a787-4717-b93d-d05deffa5812-6486465

Slope arrows used on segments making up a roof edge will create a dormer along the roof edge.

guid-cbe7a58a-3175-4124-987e-9a690dc05737-5567552 guid-ddcf6822-835f-43bf-9a02-4026e701e659-7152129

Combined Roof

The example model uses a combination of roof elements to compose the overall roof. You can select and edit each roof element individually.

  • The roof join tool is used to join different roof elements and dormer elements together.
  • The dormer opening tool was used to cut holes in the main roof for the dormers.
  • Slope arrows were used in line with a roof edge to create dormers with a shared eave line.
  • The roof edge at the larger dormer is cut with an in-place void element.
  • A “Dutch gable roof” is made with 2 roof elements. The first the roof making up the lower portion is created using the “Cutoff Level” property and a “Cutoff Offset”, then a second roof is created and placed at the cutoff level of the first roof. Once in position the 2 roof elements are joined together.
