Secondly I was going old school – export this to SAT and see waht good old Autocad na make of it.
Now this solid body can be imported into a Revit project as a basis fir an in place mass
And the subsequently used to grab Revit roof category geometry from it
So now we have a multitude of roofs in a project that we want to make a structural foundation – here is how..

And this is:
A native Revit Free Form element – all that you gonna don now is to place it…
Here’s some eye-candy
