    Roof Cricket Family and Spot Slope

    I have created a roof cricket family and am finding discrepancies with Revit's spot slope tool when the crickets are placed on a sloped roof host. I think this may be how Revit is calculating the slope with respect the host surface, but I can't wrap my brain around it. Also for the life of me I can't figure out how to nest a simple arrow annotation that I wan't to use to indicate the slope direction (instead of spot slope). Any thoughts? Revit 2020 Project file is attached.

    Looks right to me. The slope is always measured relative to horizontal. When you place the family at an angle to horizontal other than zero you reduce the slope of the cricket.
