Shape edited slabs are the foundation of modeling a landscape in Revit. And while they can be a bit tedious to model and grade, here are some tips and tricks that I have found that make the process a bit easier. And because there are always new things to discover about Revit, a couple of these I learned fairly recently.
Continuing with last week’s theme of automating Slab Shape editing, another useful function that can be done in Dynamo is matching adjacent Floor points. So if you’ve taken the time to modify the points of one Floor, you can automatically match the adjacent (or overlapping) points of another Floor.
Working with Slab Shape Floors in Revit can be a tedious process. There are two options for creating sloping Floors: use a Slope Arrow for a single slope across the entire Floor or convert the Floor to a Slab Shape and modify its points and edges. Unfortunately, there is no way to combine these two methods in the Revit UI.
Ideally, you would be able to start with a Floor, give it a single slope, and then convert it into a Slab Shape. But of course, this is possible with the Revit API and can even be done with Dynamo.
