There are holes in the slab. To cut a hole in a slab, select the slab in plan view and choose the tool in the toolbox. Pick a method to outline the hole.
How do you cut a hole in a concrete slab?
Use a standard circular saw, equipped with a corundum or diamond blade, for small tasks. For slabs, it’s best to cut through the top inch, then use a sledgehammer to break off the rest. The jagged edge left below the cutting line provides a good rough edge for the new concrete to bond to.
