...and glad to be part of the community.  I actually came with a question too!

when drawing a parking garage in REVIT, does it make more sense to draw the floor and warp it (similar to the youtube tutorial that is out there) or model the precast t's similar to how it would actually be built?  has anyone done a parking garage before?  any advice before i get started?

thanks in advance for your assistance and support.

My first Revit project was a pre-cast parking garage.  I modeled it as it would be built.  The floors were all sloped as they would be built and the precast spandrel panels all sloped accordingly as well.  If you look under my profile, you will see an image of that garage done in 2006.

I'm with WW, on this one, I assume you are using RST, I would absolutely model as it is to be built, else what is the point.

thanks for the replies all.  much appreciated!

just to clarify, when you say the floors were all sloped as they would be built, i am mostly curious at this time excactly how the floor was constructed.  Meaning, did you create 12'-0" x 60'-0" (+/-) precast t's (with 30" deep integrated beams) and use that as the basis of the floor structure OR did you use the floor command to create the floor like this:

maybe i am too new to this program to properly verbalize my question.  i hope this makes sense, and i appreciate your assistance in advance.

also, i don't know what RST is, sorry...can you clarify please?

RST is one of the three versions of revit called "revit structure".. it is basically the same as revit architecture except that it works with structural analysis programs.. revit structure is able to differentiate between load-bearing and non load-bearing elements.. revit structure is for structural engineers..

thanks again.  i am not using RST, but there is a structural consultant as part of the team obviously.

i was planning on modeling the structural ts myself to form the basis of the deck...in your opinions, is that a mistake?

thanks again, this is really helpful.

if you get the load calcs close then that's all the less modification you will have to make when it's engineered..

We did not have RST so it was modeled in architecture.  The floor slab topping was a floor and was warped by using slope lines.  They sloped from corner to corner so the slope line was used in that direction.  There was no floor modification tools then like cadclips showed.    The beams and double tees were seperate families.

thanks all.  i have started by building the simple precast shear walls and modeling the floors using the floor modification tools like in the cadclips video.  it was really easy and looks great.  of course, i am still trying to figure out the best way to coordinate with structural, and determine who will be responsible for modeling the precast t's and whether or not they will be attached to the floor i have already created or modeled as a parametric family...we are just starting DD's, so i think there is some time for those decisions.  i dont want to go too far down one road and have to circle back.

thanks again for all the support...this is a great place.  happy to have finally entered the 21st century and become acclimated with this software...i have had so many projects not go forward that were slated to be full REVIT projects...
