Adding void geometry

Continuing with our simple Revit model family, we have a pool table that we're working on. Previously we laid out the reference planes and the dimensions parameters in the "Reference planes constraints and parameters" movie. Then we added some solid geometry for the surface of the table and a sweep for the rail going around. In this movie we're going to add some void geometry that will cut through the solid geometry for the pockets of the table. So let's go ahead and get started. I am going to work in Plan view for this, and I am going to zoom in a little closer, like so.

On the Home tab, there is a Void Forms dropdown button. If you open it up, you'll notice that all the same shapes can be voids as well as solids. So you can do extrusions or sweeps or whatever you need. In this case, a simple void extrusion should do the trick. We will go ahead and choose that, and I am actually going to zoom in really close on just one corner pocket. Go over here and choose the ...
