Continuing the topic of floors, I want to talk about a scenario that happens in a lot of projects; especially since this is something that happens in MANY commercial roofs. I speak of the one and only varying thickness in a layer of an assembly. Floors or roofs, this method can be used with either of them. So let’s do it!

  1. Create your Floor, making sure it has layers.
    TotD-101609-1
  2. Ensure that the layer that varies in thickness is set to “Variable” in the assembly editor.
    TotD-101609-3
  3. Add a Sub-Element Point to the floor surface.
    TotD-101609-2
    TotD-101609-4
  4. Offset the point.
    TotD-101609-7
    TotD-101609-5
  5. Verify the layer you wanted to vary is doing what you want.
    TotD-101609-6

Beautimous!  See where this can be helpful when doing those flat roof systems?!  I’m sure you’ll be using this one over, and over again in the future.  Thanks for stopping by, and we hope to see you again soon for another Revit TotD!
