Model Elements Automatically Cut Toposolid

Model Elements Automatically Cut Toposolid

It seems like it would be helpful if toposolids were automatically cut by other model elements, such as walls, floors, etc. I can't think of an instance where one wouldn't want this, but others can feel free to chime in if they can think of some. Massing voids are obviously still available if folks need to cut voids beyond these automatic cuts, but it feels incredibly unnecessary to have to go through an entire model's worth of foundations and floors to cut the toposolid.

Congrats! We think this is a great idea, so we've decided to add it to our roadmap. Thanks for the suggestion!


To follow the progress of features in development, please see the Revit Public Roadmap and join the Revit Preview Release to participate in feature testing. (Note that Accepted Ideas may not be immediately available.)

This makes me think of the "automatically embed" parameter in Curtain Wall objects.


I think it is important to recognize how topography was "automatically" shown to be cut by walls, floors, stairs, etc when shown in a 2D section. AND this was also possible when the topography was in a link (site model, which has become a standard for many firms) in a host building model. The topography hatch was still shown. I believe the enhancement that is welcome is the lineweight of the toposolid when items are cut. The toposolid element is nice but when introduced it should also continue the many actions that the topography already offered. Do not add additional work with a new tool....

Status changed to: Implemented


We are pleased to say that this has been implemented in Revit 2025! Thank you for your contribution to improving Revit!
