    Floor & Slab Edge in Section View

    I've got a floor and a thickened slab edge. I've joined them. When looking at them in section view, I see a line representing the bottom of the floor (as though the slab edge isn't there -- but this boundary line is thin.

    How can I get rid of this extra line? I'm using Revit Structure 2014.

      Are you slab and slab edge the same material?

        That was it. For some reason the template has a few similar materials and it's very easy to get them confused and use the wrong one. I'm gonna have to talk to the boss about fixing that.

        Thanks.

          I looked for an option to do that but never found anything. But Chad helped resolve the issue.

          Thanks.

            I figured if you joined them the materials were already the same..

              That would make sense. If they're not the same, how can they be joined? But it obviously did it.

                When you join geometry in the Family Editor, you create a union between different shapes. In a project, however, one of the joined elements actually cuts the other according to the following scheme:

                Walls cut columns.
                Structural elements cut host elements (walls, roofs, ceilings, and floors).
                Floors, ceilings, and roofs cut walls.
                Gutters, fascias, and slab edges cut other host elements. Cornices do not cut any elements.
