…In Revit, we can create shafts for stairs or elevators.…One way to do this would be to physically cut a…hole into all the concrete slabs, slab by slab, floor by floor.…This would be a real pain if we had a multi-storied structure.…Another way to do this, is to create a void where, when…a floor passes through it, it will be cut out of that void.…So, by first adding an elevator pit, we will then use the Shaft…Opening command to create an opening that extends up past the roof level.…
If we add a different floor now, this floor…will automatically be cut out from this voided area.…So, to get started, let's go to the Project Browser.…Under Structural Plans, let's go up to level two.…Let's get rid of some framing.…I want to pick on this bay right here.…To delete this framing go ahead and hover over the middle of this beam.…Notice that when you do that the entire beam system lights up.…Once that lights up, go ahead and select it.…Now simply hit the Delete key on your keyboard.…
We just got rid of the entire beam system.…
