    design water

    hello
    as you should read in my signature i'm designing plants for water treatement
    i need to make and object to create water in the tank
    for now i'm using floors with special matÚrial (a blue material!) but this tip as its limits and i'd like to know how you would do thing like this...
    the tanks filled with water are most of the time build with concrete and the bottom of it can have some slopes
    when the bottom of the tank is fat i can use floor with variable thickness... it works great but for sloped floors i'm... well top of the water have to be flat not with slopes (this is what i got when i edit levels of my "floor water")
    in few words, i'd like to be able to edit not the top edges of my "slab" but the bottom of edge of the "slab"
    thanks for the advices...
    Phil
    PS : i'm using floors for desingning water because it's easy to use.... i know that's not BIMly the best thing to do but i don't know how to make things differents...

    I make pools and cisterns
    I almost always use floors
    I cheat with the bottom. (jik, jik, jik. (squirrel laugh))
    There are several ways I have thought of:
    1- model in-place
    2-models in place for void volumes and substract them to the floors
    3- Room.

    I think this is the best. Look

    Hi duende,
    Room (well I prefer space) is a good idea
    I'll try it too see how it works but it's easier to use than to create voids, distract them from others solids...
    Thanks

    the solution with space/romm is just awesome!!!
    well, i tried on a 3D view and it's impossible to have a space/room legend... but that's not so bad!!

    Know why I hardly ever use it?
    The height of the level calculation has to cut the water.
    (And my water is almost always somewhere else)

    There is a simple way to do it, but you will need a Work-shared File to do it

    Make it all up like you have
    Make the water thickness the depth of the pool
    Copy the "Bottom" floor that you have made
    Paste it back into the exact same place
    Make this new floor a new type lets say named "Cutting Floor" & alot thicker, enough to cut the water out as required
    Join this new Floor to the water
    place this new "Cutting Floor" on a workset that is turned off in all views (This is the trick)


    Take a peek at the Work-shared File below & see how I have done it. Its in R2019

    you don't need a work-shared file


    you can use a filter to hide it
