In Revit Architecture, void geometric forms are created in the same shapes as solid geometric forms. However, they are used to carve away at 3-D geometry, as opposed to adding to it. Void geometry is used to create things like the pockets in a pool table. Watch this online video to learn about the process of cutting holes using void geometry in Revit Architecture 2015
…In this movie we'll continue with the geometry for our pool table family.…And we're going to add a void form.…And a void form will be used to carve the pockets out of the tabletop surface here.…So I'm in a file called Adding Voids.…And I've got my four windows tiled, my floor plan,…my 3D view, and a front and a left elevation.…And I'm going to do this work in the Floor Plan View.…And like we did in the Adding Solids movie,…I want to take these solid forms, and go…to the sunglasses, and temporarily hide those just to…get them out of my way for a moment.…
And, I'm going to to zoom in over here in this corner.…Because I wannna get a nice clean look at those reference planes.…It's really important that the geometry I create is…associated with the reference planes and not the other geometry.…I'm going to go the Create Tab, and over…here on the forms panel, there's a drop-down, which…gives you the same five shapes that we have…as solids, but we can create those as voids.…And voids just cut away from, the solids.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
