How to generate custom floor patterns in Revit
This revit tutorial provides brief instructions on how to use Revit for producing a custom floor plan with the help of split element and create parts tools.
The following revit shortcuts are used in the tutorial:
UN - Project Units WA - Wall CS - Create Similar RP - Reference Plane Al - Align TR - Trim/Extend AR - Array CO - Copy
In this tutorial, you will learn how to cut up the last layer of the floor and generate custom pattern as well alter the material of various floor tiles.
Split elements: Split elements are used to cut an element (like a wall or pipe) at a specified point, or eliminate a segment among 2 points. In Revit LT 2018, go to the “Modify” menu and opt for the “Split” tool.
There are 2 versions of the Split tool like “Split Element” and “Split with Gap “. Go ahead and choose split element” tool from the drop-down menu. Once it is activated, it should be noticed that the cursor has been changed to an icon of a knife / scalpel blade. Just hover over the element that you want to split and Revit will demonstrate a blue line to specify where the split will be done. Go ahead and left-click with your mouse. Revit then splits the element at this point.
Create Parts: It is possible to create a part from an element that has been chosen in the drawing area, either in the existing project or in a linked model.
In the case of elements containing layers or subcomponents, like walls, individual parts will be generated for those layers. For other elements, a single part element is formed. In either case, the consequential part or parts can then be separated into smaller parts.
