    Sloped floor join loses materials

    Setting the scene, I have an existing floor with slopes modeled (using modify sub element). On top of this I am looking to place a ramped deck. This deck is made up of two layers (wood, void former). The void former should vary to fit the existing floor below.

    The issue I am having is that when I join the two to cut the bottom of the void former to the floor below, the material buildup is removed and replaced by a nondescript grey.

    Any idea what is causing this?

    Screenshot and Revit file (simplified, R17) attached.

    I don’t know why, but for some reason revit doesn’t like the placement of the floors in relation to each other. Move one of the floor as per picture, if you don’t mind a minor misalignment. Or, uncheck ‘variable’ option and use void to cut the floor excess.

      Thanks! That's a good little tip for a work around. A minor misalignment will in reality never be noticeable in final drawings so I guess I can live with that (however uncomfortable it makes the Revit perfectionist inside of me!). Definitely a better option than having to create lots of extra voids to cut the floor excess.

      Any idea what material Revit is replacing the buildup of the floor with in my example?

        In your case, it will take ‘default floor’ material because that what is assigned to the floor category in the object styles. If you remove the material, I think it will take system default color (no material) which is grey 127 127 127.
