    Precast complex structural floor with detailing

    My goal is to create detailed, complex strop, with precast. It should be build with rfa files. I have an idea, how to do it manually, but I wonder, if there are some kind of automated solutions? With addons or Dynamo scripts? Since putting each element manually will take some time.

    Also, do you have any tips, how to model concrete, to look like in this screen shoot and calculate properly in the schedules?

    Modelling the present floor is a pain really. I model precast slabs as an entire floor (without the units) and use a repeat detail component to show the slab holes. (one with circles and one with dashed lines, depending on the span direction)
    It make your life a lot easier this way.
    Creating individual families that shows the units and the holes will drive you mad :banghead:.

    I don't think there are any free tools to do this but Tools4revit have a great tool for this. Its not free)

      Thanks for answer. I checked AGACAD's tools 4 bim, but it's not working as I want it to work. I solved my problem using structural framing, but it took me some hours

        Hi! If you work alot with this you should contact AGACAD.
        I have used their tools 3-4 years and I'm really pleased.
        I can garantee that you'll get great result for hollow core slabs (but maybe you need some help with configurations).
        Of course it works well with manually created structural framing, but it's not that flexible. They also have great application for shop drawings.
        if you do not work with precast concrete on a regular basis, then it might be too expensive...

          Thanks for answer. I do not need shop drawnings, I just need to show that slabs are made of precast and there is concrete between elements. Structural framing + beam system works perfectly.
