Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Cutting holes using void geometry, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, we'll continue with the geometry for our pool table family.…And, we're going to add a void form. And the void form will be used to carve…the pockets out of the table top 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.…Now I'm 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 zoom in over here on this corner, because I want to 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 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 going to go down here and choose a Void Extrusion.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
