Could not do thickened slab foundation under bearing wall

Recommended Posts

I tried and failed and moved on, but here was the goal.

 

A simple 8-foot deep foundation with a 4" slab floor sitting atop the 16" wide x 8" deep footings.  A plain studwall right down the center, sitting on the slab, the slab thickened under the wall, 4" more thickness, 16" wide.

 

Chief X8 kept trying to convert my footing-slab arrangement to a monopour thing.

 

I could get a footing UNDER the slab where the wall went, but I could not thicken the slab and leave it otherwise unaffected, that is, being a separate pour from footings, and sitting atop them.

Add this to the "Suggestion" forum. We need a "monolithic footing" button for the foundation tab in wall dbx.

Do a regular footing first then select it and change.
