    Default how to model a wall with a slanted top

    How would I model a wall so that it looks like this in section without having it attach to a slanted ceiling?
    This is just an In-place mass.

    It does not have to be an in-place mass. It could be a wall, with a reveal profile with the shape of a triangle, configured in the wall's properties.

    I have never used a wall reveal and for some reason that option is actually greyed out in my Revit.

    Are you looking at a plan view or elevation? If you're looking at a plan view, switch to an elevation or section, then those options should be available.

    I think the OP wants to slope the top of the wall in section, not elevation.

    I think you should try to draw a reference plane slanted in an elevation view, name it if you want,select the wall and attach Top to the ref.plane.hope this help

    Interesting. My options for top constraints are in the wall type ... attach to ... level 1 OR level 2. I don't see where the named (and angled) reference plane is listed so cannot set top to it.

    As stated previously: You cannot draw wall sweeps / reveals if you're not in a view showing the wall in its height. So change to a sectional view / elevation / 3d. Then you should be able to draw a reveal in order to cut a shape into your wall:

    As for attaching to a reference plane: No need to name the plane, but it is good practice. Just make sure you're in a section view of the wall, draw your plane, select the wall, click "Attach Top/Base" and click on the plane ... finished!

    Thanks. That's clearer now. Attach Top/Base is located in the RIBBON. It is a great feature, where one reference plane could control the tops of multiple walls.
