I have a recatangular panel, representing a raft foundation.  I want to modify the area under the lift (elevator) core walls by dropping it deeper (to accomodate lift equipment) , what is the best workflow to achieve that,short of remodelling the whole panel from scratch?

Please use plain text.

1. Create the opening within the lift area inside the existing raft foundation

2. Create a panel of the size of the opening below the existing raft foundation

3a. Create vertical panels to connect edges of the opening with edges of the newly created panel


3b. Use rigid links to connect nodes generated along the edges of the opening with the corresponding nodes of the panel you created below the opening
