    Question How to create a cascade slab family??

    How to create a cascade slab family??-asdasfasdadad.jpg

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to model my senior design project in Revit. However it is a extra and I don't have a experienced person in my network. So ı need a little help.

    Project's challenge is using post tensioned cascade slab for a conference hall. I used a lot of elevation in order to create a slab which is shown ind the screeshoot. However, it is very hard to modify all of the steps one by one, I need a parametric cascade slab. Do you know how I can create such an family file? I'm not too experienced, I'm using this program just for 2 weeks. Could someone explanin me how to create this type of family file?

    thank you for your attention,

    Unfortunately the slab editing tools won't allow a curved 'split line' so off the top of my head, if that is the final look of what you need then:
    1) How it appears is good...
    or
    2) Create a super thick slab and use an in-place floor family void (multiple extrusions in one in-place family) and use those void to "cut" the floor as desired...

    Or dare I say use stairs??? Will this need to be scheduled as a 'floor'??? If so disregard the 'stair' option...

    I was about to say the exact same thing, but then thought about scheduling and whatever else floors can do that stairs can't.

    As for editing them, It looks like they are all identical. Are they? If so, you could just edit one, delete the others, Go so a section or elevations and copy them from point to point again.

    I see but I intended to use autodesk quantitiy take off for cost calculations :/

    @datto
    Sorry dzatto, I don't understand "If so, you could just edit one, delete the others, Go so a section or elevations and copy them from point to point again." could you open that ? And is there a difference between slab and stairs when I'm doing quantitity take off, Could I put some rebars to the stairs as well ?
