Basement Foundation Wall (Pony Wall) Alignment

Recommended Posts

Maybe a CA guru who designs in an area of the country where basements are common can give me some insight on how to construct a foundation wall that is a pony wall...and get this wall to align properly with the wood framed wall above.  I can move the wall manually...and eventually get it to line up...but it's very time consuming.  Especially for a complex house where some of the walls are 2x4 with stone or brick veneer...and others are 2x6 with stone or brick veneer.  


There must be a simple method?  I've thought that I may not have the "main layer" defined correctly...but I've messed with that a bit and without success.  


I've attached a simple plan that shows where the foundation is placed automatically.

Disregard...I figured out the problem myself.  I had the "platform" defined incorrectly.  "Garbage in...Garbage out".

      Is there a way to generate the vertical cell reinforcement objects in a CMU foundation plan? I am looking for something along the lines of what is in this diagram (from another system). It is a common requirement for foundations. Please refer to the small squares grouped at the corners of the foundation drawing attached. Note that I am using Chief Architect Premier X12 (latest build).

      The detail drawing for this object would look similar to this:

      Issue in X12 when using break tool to adjust wall for an extension over a column.
      Bare wall end fir stud and overhead framing stud can be seen in wall section instead of drywall.
      See attached file/pic.
      I do not believe soffit is viable solution as I am seeing that soffits will not frame.
      So framing is important.
      Many thanks to Solver as he addressed this issue and resolved it for my needs by applying different wall types to the wall area drawing. I posted my original files as reference and Solver's solution file (1868954996_MHD_sampletemplateplanSolutionWallEnds).
      And the solution frames out too as can be seen in file with camera Perspective Floor & Perspective Framing views.

      Is it possible to create a wall type as attached in the image?. This is for a roof top patio partition wall. Could some one guide me please.

      Hello, I am wondering why is the garage foundation wall does not show/appear in the basement (level 0) floor where there is a door above on the first floor? (Plan attached). More over the location I have clouded shows the wall clearly, why it is not displaying at the other locations?
