    can I model a notched floor?

    is there a way to create a live floor slab with a notch? i need to start defining structure to this section and how this canopy joins with the floor

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure that you could use an in place void family, but if it's just for sections you could use the Cut Profile tool under View/Graphics/Cut Profile.

      You could possibly also use a Slab Edge--( can't tell what type of floor you are using?)

        No In-Place Please

        Slab Edges should be best. BTW: do not (EVER) use in-place families (mostly), unless you want to add difficulties & unnecessary weight...

              i like the tutorial.
              Very clear on how this could be done.

                does anyone know why when I create a slab edge, there is a line separating it from the slab? I want it to look as though it is a single formed element.slab edge.JPG

                  Two things to check:
                  1: Are they exactly the same material?
                  2: Try joining them.
