    Question Line based void

    Hey all!

    I'm having some trouble creating a cutting family.
    What I'm trying to do is creating something that will cut floors without using the 'cut' function,
    and instead I'd like to use a family to do the job. So far so good.
    (This one was made by creating a void on a floor based plane, and cut inside the family editor)

    The main issue here is that I also need this to cut all the way to the edge of the floor, and I was thinking 'line based' might be the way to go? However, I'm stuck on this part and can't seem to get it right.
    (I've tried to load the previous family inside a line based generic model template)

    Are there any better ways to do this? Using In-place model/Void and cut is not an option here.

    Thanks!

    Some of the shapes need to get Cut into the Slab. I believe that Line Based is one of them. Faced based does it automatically.

    Thanks for answering!

    Any way to make the void continuous through out the whole side of the floor using this method without using a length parameter?

    I just adjust the Slab sketch to align with Exterior core of wall (exterior edge of mtl stud, for example). Then use a Slab Edge condition to get the Brick Ledge I want, as I can only assume from the image you provided.
