CHAPTER 4: Working with the Revit Tools > The Split Element Command

The Split Element Command

The Split Element command takes the place of the conventional Trim command, because you cannot actually delete an entire area between two points in Revit by using the Trim command. The Split Element command is the equivalent of the Break command in AutoCAD: you can use the Split Element command on walls and when you edit an element in Sketch Mode.

To use the Split Element command, find the model you are using to follow along. If you have not completed the previous procedures, open the file called NER-13.rvt found at the book's website, www.sybex.com/go/revit2012ner. Go to Chapter 4 to find the file. The objective of this procedure is to cut a notch out of a wall by using the Edit Profile function:

  1. In the Project Browser, open the Sections (Building Section) called West Wing South Wall Section, as shown in Figure 4.35.
