    Default How to Model Thickened Slab Foundation

    I have a slab (Mat, Raft) foundation of different thicknesses (thickened under walls), how can I model that foundation in Revit structure with all parameters

    thanks in advance

    I use floor slab then add pan joist as ribs.
    you can turn off edge slope of pan to use as edge rib.
    the lines at intersections clean up if you are using hidden view setting.
    you can set pan joist slab depth, width, and depth as needed.

    thanks dmahan

    I have seen other solution that is easy for mass details production
    it is like subtracting volumes from generic model (or some thing like that)

    I have encountered with another sticky problem
    the non-uniform blinding concrete (Plain concrete) - photo attached

    any contributions will be highly recognized

    I use a combination of slab edge and for the middle one a beam family.

    the easiest way found, is to model a componenet (in-place family) by solids and voids

    but the new dilemma is how to have its parameter in element proporties like a system foundation
