How to create Revit slab edge?
Hello I wonder if you can help me. I am trying to draw a slab edge in Revit 2013 without much success. I am repeating a lesson taught me in Revit 2011 which might be part of the problem.
If I use floor drop down menu and choose slab edge tool I get following error message when I click on edge of slab: Error, one element is inside another.
(incidentally I there is no sketch mode in this command. Why is that?)
The tutorial states that you have to go to the properties palette. The edge has been created within the slab but it can be dropped below the slab by changing the dimensions under constraints.
However, to me, it does not seem that the edge has actually been created so I cannot move it. Does this approach not work in Revit 2013. What am I doing wrong?
First we need to create a profile so we go to menu browser.
We choose Metric profile Hosted family because it will be hosted by the floor.
Once the profile has been created, you click on dims to access parameters command on green options bar. I couldn’t do this. Is this because I am using Revit 2013? I am using straight Revit, not the structures version.
Using icon on shortcuts save and create a new family type.
Then load family type into the project you are working on. Surely this should be possible even if I didn’t manage to activate the parameters command?
A profile is presumably a subset of something larger. So when I use Floor Slab edge command, I duplicate it and bring in a new profile, the one I have just created.
However, I couldn’t get this to work either.
Any idea what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
