    join walls to floor

    Hi,
    I'm having a problem to understand the mechanism of joining walls to floors
    In the attached image you will see:

    Detail 1: I was able join the wall to floor and extend the masonry core of the wall to the slab concrete and cleanup the finishes of both floor an wall, this was done when creating the floor and Revit told me that he will join automatically them

    Detail 2: I used the Attache Top Bottom function to attache the wall to upper floor, but in detail 3;

    Detail 3: I couldn't use attache top bottom to achieve the result in detail 2

    Detail 4: Normally i have a problem with the first level floor and wall over it, they join only when I use the join tool, but I can't join wall to floor one by one in a big project,

    So how can I solve these issues, easy approach to join all walls to floors?
    thanks
    Karim

    Hi Karim, and welcome to the Forum

    The mechanism of joining walls to floors is controlled by the Functions of each layer, e.g. Structure [1], Substrate [2], Thermal / Air Layer [3], Finish 1 [4] & Finish 2 [5]

    Takes a little getting used to, but works quit well most of the time

      Thanks Klaus,
      I tried the different combinations by trial and error, and i reached some results, but still i can't make the bottom of the wall core to extend to the floor core of the floor unless bu using the join tool, it's good but the problem is that it only works one by one! I'm sure I'm missing something.

        In other words:
        I want to show the Block core of the wall extending down past the floor finish to the concrete floor itself

          Ok i figured it out, but now i have a new problem, how to extend the exterior finish layers of walls at the slab edge to meat each other and form a smoth facade?

            Make sure that your floor boundary ends at the interior side of the exterior finish (red line) and make sure that your walls meet at the level (blue line)
            Then use "Join Geometry" to join both walls and both walls to the floor.

              Good Point Munkholm.

              I´ve made an example with the interior walls. And again, the Core position is key here, be sure to include a function in the interior wall core (It is possible to cheat here for other reasons). see the image.

                Hi Klaus,

                Would you kindly explain your last post; how do you actually execute that? Thanks,

                  When you accepted Revit to join walls and floors, it is the same as manually using the 'join geometry' tool.

                  2 ways to resolve you problem with walls 'not joining' to floors at the bottom

                  1 attach top/base
                  a Select the wall (or walls)
                  b Use the attach top/base command
                  c Select the floor.
                  d Adjust the base offset to modify the outer layer (or use base extension if the wall is set up for it)
                  2 extend and join
                  a. Set the base offset to (minus) the thickness of your floor. -- This will extend the wall down to the height you require.
                  b. Join geometry Modify>Join Geometry. This will resolve and tidy the join.

                  I'm sure there are other Revit solutions!

                    Here is a video showing what Klaus is talking about.

                    Note that you can do this with one wall going all the way up to the top constraint as well. Note that if you join the top wall to the floor as well, you get a further level of interaction with the cores.
