Creating Mass Floors
Floor area faces are incredibly useful for getting a sense of the gross area of a building mass at any intersecting level. Furthermore, the results can be quickly and easily scheduled. Any changes to the massing study will update the schedules and all views in real time. Select the completed mass and then click the Mass Floors tool in the Model panel. You'll be given the option to select all the levels in your project. You want to select them all, but rather than select them one at a time, select Level 1, and then scroll down. While pressing Shift, select Level 64. Now all of the levels are selected. Check any box, and all of the boxes will automatically be checked. Click OK.

Your mass has now been bisected with mass floors (faces with no geometry), as shown in Figure 2.26. FIGURE 2.26 The mass has been bisected with mass floors.
