We have a job that will have load bearing stud walls, cold form joists and a framed floor.  There will also be at the top of the walls a boxed systemWe will call this a beam) that the slab will pour down into the same depth as the bottom of the joists.

My question is we would like to have the "beam" as part of the wall system, so that it pops in at the top of the wall, is this possible?

Also we would like to make the slab system to incorporate the whole floor, (the slab, deck and the joist - but we only want it to show a line for the joist.  These joists will not be modeled into our building.  Is there a way to do this?


Will Revit allow the wall with the so called "beam" at the top to go thru the slab?


I included a picture of the section so you know what I am talking about.

You could do a stacked wall to get the poured part of the floor to be part of the wall.  If you dont want to see the joints where the floor and wall meet use the linework tool in your section view.  As far as getting the joists as part of the floor I don't see any way of doing this. You can show the floor and deck but the joists will need to be separate.

Just add an entry into the floor make-up for the thickness of the joist. It does not have to actually display any joist.
