In many cases, you will find the need to cut holes in these elements like simple passageways through walls, shafts for floors, elevators and equipment in floors and skylights and dormers in roofs. In some cases, you'll find it easiest to edit the sketch of the element in question to represent such penetration. This approach would work well for floors which represent double volume spaces for example. In other cases, you might use an opening object to actually cut through the solid geometry.

So in this movie, we're going to explore a few examples of opening objects, and I'm going to start with a shaft opening, and the file I have opened here on screen is called Shaft. Now the opening objects are on the Architecture tab. You can find them here on the Opening panel. We're not going to do all five opening types, ...
