Working with Slab Shape Floors in Revit can be a tedious process. There are two options for creating sloping Floors: use a Slope Arrow for a single slope across the entire Floor or convert the Floor to a Slab Shape and modify its points and edges. Unfortunately, there is no way to combine these two methods in the Revit UI.
Ideally, you would be able to start with a Floor, give it a single slope, and then convert it into a Slab Shape. But of course, this is possible with the Revit API and can even be done with Dynamo.
Since Dynamo provides access to the API, it can be quite useful in automating certain processes, such as placing, sizing, and rotating plants. But it can also be utilized as an analysis tool.
And Topography slope analysis is frequently required to determine which areas of land are buildable.
In a recent post about Ramps (and their problems), I stated that you cannot place Spot Elevations on the sloping part of the Ramp. While this is true in plan views, I was surprised to discover that Ramps can actually be annotated in 3D views…
While working with shape-edited Floors, I have noticed that you cannot place a Spot Elevation on a sloped Floor face with a curved edge. You can place Spot Elevations along any edge, but once you hover over the actual face, it won’t allow you to place a Spot Elevation.
