I've looked for a thread on this topic but cannot find one. Typical construction is CMU stem wall on footing and slab.
I would like to show outside edge of foundation block and all thickened slab areas (for bearing walls and posts). I see the foundation block on floor "0" and the thickened slab (under bearing walls) and post footings on floor "1". I would like to display all this on one layout and add dimensions for concrete, plumbing, and other under-slab work.
What is the best way to do this without redrawing a separate plan to accommodate these items?
Is there a room dialog to prevent this from happening? Ideally I want to make the cantilever a "cantilever" room and have it not generate walls under the cantilever with auto rebuild foundation walls on. Unless there is an easier way? Copying the balcony room settings ends up generating walls like the attached picture, still generating walls under cantilever. Feel like I'm missing something very simple.
I am a current chief architect user and have a question in regards to the contour tool and driveway tool.
I have a plan that has a sloping site that I am trying to accurately portray in 3d for both client and the Local Council.
From the road front the site slopes left to right and from the back to front.
(I have attached Images shown what I currently have)
My question is there something that I am missing I have also tried in elevation converting/extracting a polyline solid but it doesn't quite work.
I have attached a link to the 3d viewer but can add a plan if need be. https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=503392208525732
I cannot get the floor joists to build.It originally a regular slab home. but now it is pier and beam with concrete block around preiemerter at 8' o.c. or wha ever engineer specs out. I cannot the the floor joist to build on first floor, cannot garage to show 4" drop with preimerter walls and regular lab,garage left wall to close in. Rear deck will not show up in rendering either.
FFE 61.00, top of cmu blocks 60.00, existing grade 57.30', top of grade beam 57.33. garagefloor 52.33 8 cmu blocks abovegarage slab.perfer 12" all around outside of garage foundation.
I would appreciate getting the first floor joists to be installed. and the other issues.
