Sheathing and siding overlapping issue

Hi! In my project there's a place where the floor is visible due to a slant in the terrain; my objective is to extend the exterior material of the wall bellow its bottom until it reaches the lower side of the floor.

I searched the forum, and found a thread which explains the procedure: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Revit-Architecture/How-to-get-sheathing-and-siding-of-exterio.... However, although I was able to extend negatively the exterior material, it does not "cut" through the floor.

As you can see, I extended the outer surface, but to no avail. The structure of the building consists of a thin building pad, a floor and attached walls to the floor. What am I doing wrong?

Shouildn't the edge of the floor be pulled back where the exterior layer of the wall extends down?

 

You could try editing the footprint of the floor to achieve this.

 

Also, have you tried using Cut Geometry?

Could you try attaching the Wall to the Floor?

 

Or perhaps use Edit Profile to align the bottom edge to the sloping slab below Finish Floor?

Unfortunately, attaching the wall to the floor doesn't do anything; and when I edit the profile the wall does extend bellow the floor, but the problem persists.

I tried your first option on a simple test, with a floor with wood finish and an exterior wall, and it does indeed work.

However, I was unable to replicate it in the project; I assume it is because I assigned different materials to my floor. To do it, I divided the floor in parts; thus, editing the floor (part) profile is not straightforward - I don't know why does a dashed blue line appears 'outside' the limit of what previously was the floor...

Regarding your second sugestion - Cut Geometry - it doesn't appear to work, but I could be doing something wrong.

I discovered that I could adjust the footprint of the floor by going to a section and selecting there the floor, returning to a plan view in order to edit it. I don't know if that's the best option, but it works.

 

Thanks for your suggestions!
