How do you show a ramp slope in Revit?

Go to a 3D view, align it to Top mode so that you can see the ramp just like in a Plan view. You’ll now be able to add a spot slope to the ramp. Copy the spot slope, go to the Plan view, ‘Paste to Current View’. Done!

  • Ramps are sloped pathways used both inside and outside buildings used to provide access between vertical levels. …
  • The gradient, slope or steepness of a ramp is the angular relationship between its rise (vertical height) and its horizontal projection or length (run), often expressed as a ratio.

How do you calculate a ramp?

Calculating the Slope

Divide the length of the ramp by the height. This will be the second number in your ratio. The first number is always one. If the ramp measures 12 feet long and the rise is 2 feet, you would divide 12 by 2 to get 6, and your ratio would be 1 to 6.
