Hi - still feeling my way into Revit.
One thing that I cannot figure out how to accomplish, and I've searched various places, is how to have a layered floor structure dovetail into a layered wall construction.
I have a cavity wall construction with inner leaf of blockwork - and an intermediate floor slab - concrete precast slabs with insulation and screed on.
The construction in Revit defaults to the whole floor structure finishing at the internal face of the wall. I need the slab layer of the floor to project into the inner blockwork, whilst having the other floor construction layers finishing flush with the wall. This needs to occur at the support end of the slab only rather than around the whole floor perimeter.
I'm working on a single wall type spanning ground floor up to the underside of the roof - should I be using separate walls for each floor ? (I read somewhere that it is advisable to break wall types by floor as costs may be different).
Solved! Go to Solution.
You must have the same core material ...let"s say it is Concrete cast in Situ...
In section view select the the wall and apply from Modify Walls>Geometry>Join..select the wall and then the floor...
For exterior walls I use the height till the roof..
Hi Constantin, thanks for the reply.
Can you not accomplish something similar with differing materials ?
In my case I have a concrete precast slab, and blockwork in the wall, so the join option will not work.
I don't need the materials to join specifically, rather just to have the concrete slab project into the wall construction to the width of the blockwork inner leaf (although it would be good to know how it could just partially project into the construction too).
if you have different materials in wall core and floor core ..
when you make the floor , if you use :
If you want to change line thickness :
in order to have a partialy project do not align the border of the slab to the exterior face of the wall core.
Thank You !
That sorted it, I had tried something similar, but I hadn't seen the 'Extend into Wall' option.
I had also tried it my manually picking the intended face for the floor- but that only extended the whole floor (ie. all layers).
Your technique automatically extends only the core material - which is exactly what I needed to do.
Many thanks Constantin,
