Control Joints?

Recommended Posts

I haven't had much occasion to use the sidewalk tools, so I was

disgruntled to discover that Chief apparently has no provisions

for making control or expansion joints in sidewalks and slabs. I

don't know anybody who pours concrete without such joints and 

it's little touches like this that add believability and realism to a 

scene. This is what a standard 48" wide sidewalk looks like in

our neck of the woods. Not just an unbroken expanse of concrete.

To accomplish this effect I had to make an array out of 50 2' x 2'

segments of sidewalk. And Lord help you if there is a driveway

involved.

I never show the expansion joints in 3D or plan views. I have a cad detail for flatwork that specifies this information that is used in the layout.
