Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Cutting holes using void geometry, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we'll continue with the geometry…for our pool table family.…And we're gonna add a void form.…And the 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.…I'm gonna 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 gonna zoom in over here on this corner,…because I wanna 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 gonna go to 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.…So, I'm gonna go down here and choose a Void Extrusion.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
