Modeling Floors

Floors are system families in Revit that can be created with boundaries either sketched using drawing tools or by picking walls. Floors are created downwards from the level on which they are sketched. Thus, by default, top of the floor is aligned with the level line.

Learn about how to create Floors with this Video Tutorial – by Autodesk Building Solutions. While this video uses Revit LT version, the methodology shown in this tutorial applies also to all other Revit versions.

Floors, like walls, are compound structures. Thus, to add multiple layers of materials (structural, finishes, insulation, etc) or change the thickness of the floor, you must use the Edit Assembly dialog box to add compound layers.
