    joining beam-floor

    Hey,

    i have made a floor of 2 components 7 cm and 23 cm concrete. Both a different material. The beam has the same material as de second layer of 23 cm. If i join these 3 ellements, sometimes joined it well and sometimes not and revit change the material of the beam.

    floor not joined:

    Floor joined WRONG (material beam changed)

    Hi,
    we often use these type of floors.
    Discussion is always continuing weather to model the separate plate or just one thickness of floor (30cm. in this case).

    Revit has trouble joining elements consisting of different materials a.f.a.i.k.

    There are 3 options:
    1 floor of 30 cm. with an 2d filled region
    2 floor as shown with lots of joining trouble
    3 seperate floor layers (7cm. and 23cm.) can be joined but generating other problems


    Common practice for now: model 1 thickness (30cm.) join it with beams etc. and in a section simply place a 2d filled region of 7cm. at the correct place.

    Regards,
    Jan

      I do this:
      a multi-layer floor (7 + 23 + finish if needed) joined to beams, and I play with Parts for schedule and cutviews.

        I won't go here. Let's say you want to schedule the amount of in-place concrete: not possible.
        Every detail you need to reapply the DC's which is a PITA
        If your floor thickness, placement or the thickness of one of the layers changes: major coordination issues...

        As for the OP: I've never seen a concrete beam change material by itself (nor any other Revit component for that matter). How is the material assigned to the beam? With a parameter or through the object styles?

          Its a confusing area, but there is usually reason to the madness depending on the order it was modeled, and the order it is joined. Then once you change an elements material halfway though you will get different results

          Another workflow for the floor is to use a structural deck, with the structural deck option you can allow for a cantilever at the beam support which you apply in the slab sketch on the design options bar. Its a time consuming workflow though
