My detatched garage is floating?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your help earlier - now I have some weirdness going on that I cannot fathom the solution to, mostly because the software says that it should be working....

I've built a garage that should have a floor 51 3/16" below the main floor subfloor (0) I've set it to that number in the dialog box room specs 'c'. Meanwhile my terrain under is -51 3/16" so unless I am missing something they should marry up, however my garage is floating.... Any ideas what the heck is wrong? Does the terrain settings use relative height? I'm sure it was absolute to the main floor subfloor (maybe that is why in elevation the terrain looks off (should be 20" below the deck on the right)?

fixed it - appears I forgot to 0 out the subfloor height from terrain - I'd been setting my measures from the subfloor so I was adding an extra 20" - my bad

      How can I drop the foundation slab in my attached garage by 6" from the main house? All of the walls are already up in the plans....

      I imported a Import a surveyor DWG file. I followed the instruction in the tutorial (Import a Surveyor DWG file for a Site Plan or Terrain Perimeter (chiefarchitect.com) . And got some strange spikes hills. I have tired cleaning up the elevation data but no luck. There is simply no elevation data in the area that is that tall, not sure what is generate this. Pleas see the attached pic and surveyor map.

      Fellow More-experienced CA users,
       
      I have drawn as-built plans of a house for a renovation/addition project in CA v.12.  I recently received the final survey from the surveyor with property lines, major and minor contours, the building footprint, and other typical survey information.  I imported it from .dwg as a .plan file  with layers for terrain perimeter and terrain, and converted the terrain using the convert tool to make it 3D.  It shows up with terrain. Yay!  Now I'm not sure of the next steps:
      1. How do I bring the terrain into the building.plan?
      2. How do I set it in place - using a Place Point or Point Marker at a corner of the house?
      3. The survey elevations are in the 650' range so how what do I do to place the terrain relative to my house (1st floor 0.0)?  This house has a walk out basement, if that matters.
      4. I copied in a 2D version of the survey to use in plan view (on layer CAD, AS-BUILT SURVEY).  When I send it to layout, the house floor plans are obscured and the secondary contours didn't come in - admittedly, this is a previous version of my survey attempt and I've since remapped the survey layers.
       
      I have also attached the house plan, if that helps.
       
      Thanks for recommendations from this group, as I've watched numerous videos and couldn't find any that addressed this process.

      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:

      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?
