    Partial slab demolition

    What's the best way to deal with partial slab demolitions? One of the projects in the office is a large retail store and they are removing existing coolers & recessed slabs and adding new coolers & slabs in other locations. The existing recessed slabs shouldn't be too hard as they are seperate slabs and can be demo'd, but the new pieces I'm not sure. The only thing that comes to mind is to have multiple floors with the pieces being removed modeled seperately.

    If they are uniform shapes, a Face Based Generic Model family that has a void that is placed in the new phase, will demo the slab where the void is...

    Ive never delt with this... how do you place the void on a new phase? Is it in the family or in the project?

    That was already discussed here http://www.revitforum.org/architectu...html#post21221 (post #3) for wall though, but the same principal applies for other elements as well.

    I just tried using a family with a void and while it cuts the slab in the new nothing shows up in the demo, meaning it would need either detail lines added in the project on the demo views or the floors will need to be modeled and demo'd. Unless I'm doing something wrong?
