    Workflow for wooden flooring

    How do you model this type of floor?
    Thanks in advance

    Personally I would model it as a separate floor family, that contains the air space and the wood flooring, but not the sleepers. I would leave it visible is all views (i.e. no "Finishes" Workset or Filter) and I would probably use the sand pattern and a tan color to define the material. The sleepers and insulation would be detail components in the details only. If the sleepers must show up in sections as well as details, I would consider modeling them as well, probably just using Structural Beams. And I would Join the two floors, so you get a nice fat profile line only at the top surface of the wood and the bottom surface of the concrete. This is the reason for modeling the air gap, so there is a common face for the two floors to join at.

          Yup, beam system :thumbsup:, and if you really want to go overboard, two beam systems one for battens in one direction and one for floorboards in the opposite direction.

            OK, but why would one want to ventilate the hardcore with a cranked ventilator ? Especially since there is no suspended floor ? KM

              Why, if I may ask? Seems a bit overboard to me (let alone do both...). Only when I wanted the actual length of the battens/sleepers (which is it?) I'd go that far...

                from Gordon`s post " If the sleepers must show up in sections as well as details, I would consider modeling them as well, probably just using Structural Beams. "
                --> in this situations beam systems are more easy to control than manually put beams. It`s so easy to scketch shapes an openings in the floor with with them also to adjust the distance between members.

                  Ok, didn't think you were referring to Gordon's post...
                  Yup, when modelling is required I'd also go with a beam system rather then loose beams.
                  Or maybe a Curtain System roof when beams in multiple configurations are necessary (for instance around holes in the floor, non-rectangular edges, and that sort of stuff).
