    hollow core floor slab

    Hi
    does any one know how to use the hollow core slab as floor, also shown the hollow core in sections?

    It is possible to do this one of a couple ways without a third party add-in. The first is to model a floor in the size you want. Then using an in place component build void forms in the floor in the way you want the cores to represent. The other is to build a beam family that is the standard width of a hollow core floor section with the cores shown as wanted and use it in a beam system to generate the floor. Other than those 2 methods your next best bet would be to purchase an add-in that could make the void forms for you.

      Do you *not* want to use the OOTB "Precast-Hollow Core Slab" family?

      I haven't had to do a hollow core floor yet, but I did need to place Double Tees. I imagine it would be a similar process.

        Hi,

        the answer mainly depends on what you have in mind using the model: QTO, analysis, precast, design only....

        for design only, it could be a simple repeating detail. For analysis, hypnox1 and LeanneZ gave the answer.

        For precast, you will need a really advanced family.

          Good point on the repeating detail component. I tend to forget about that method as the times I have gotten the question doing support the people I talked to always wanted the cores modeled. I should investigate further why the cores would want to be modeled. Perhaps for collision detection?

            Reasons could be IMHO:

            - analysis (even if I wonder if it increase the analysis accuracy)
            - precast detailling for manufacturers
            - work breakdown for construction engineering (my all-day job....)
            - QTO and delivery planning for site management (again my ADJ)

            also could be:
            - they don't know what they are doing
            - or what they need or want
            - for the "BIM" accuracy
            - for the "BIM" beauty
            - waiting the end of the day
            - a challenge
            - for Revit splashscreen
            - for crashing the laptop and ask the boss a new one
            - etc etc

            hope it helps! :thumbsup:
