How to use Thickening with the Revit Structure Slab Edge tool

The Revit Structure Slab Edge tool allows us to create thickened portions of slabs which are typically located at the boundaries of floors. A slab edge type is composed of a profile family and a material assignment. It is important that the material assignment of the slab edge matches that of the floor to which the slab edge is applied, as this ensures proper joining of geometry.

Once a foundation slab or floor has been created, we can apply slab edges to the required floor boundary.

To apply the thickening we click on the bottom edge of the floor, and we can then edit the Horizontal offset.

We then join the two using the Modify Tab> Geometry Panel>Join Geometry tool.
