What Revit category should I use to model hardscapes?
As per industry standards, hardscapes are typically modeled using the “Floors” or “Pavements” categories in Revit. This is because these categories provide the necessary tools and functionalities to create accurate and precise models of hardscape elements, such as pavers, sidewalks, and patios. However, it’s important to note that the specific category used may vary depending on the design and project requirements.
If I use the “Shape By Topography” tool, will the floor automatically update when I edit the toposurface I used to create it?
Unfortunately, the tool doesn’t automatically update the floor when you edit the toposurface. However, using the tool again is quick and easy, and it will update the floor with the changes made to the toposurface.
