hi,

 

Im creating a drop slab floor. How do I do it without creating a new floor and lowering the base offset. Just a single floor slab with a drop with the perimeter of the column.

 

Thanks.

You can do as you suggested and copy it to multiple locations or you can create a family and do the same thing.  The slab thought is probably easiest.

I would recommend the external family approach.  It allows you to more easily constrain the panels to the columns/grids.  This ensures the drop panels are always centered on your columns even when they are shifting about in the early design phases.  Depending on your modeling techniques you could create a family hosted on your column or slab.  Personally I use a custom family created from the "complex beam and trusses" template with type parameters for the width and length.  Depending on the project thickness can be controlled with either an instance or type parameter.

What's good above shaverjeff's answer is that if you make his parametric family, it could be used on multiple projects in different ways.

WWHub,

As you suggested, my method would be fine but if i Section it, it will have a line showing incorrect view.

Shaverjeff,

Can you show me how to do it. step by step, or at least the basic procedure. not very familiar with hosted family. 

 

thanks.
