Move manually-drawn piers from level 1 to level 0

Recommended Posts

Version 10.

 

I created these on the first floor and now want them to show on the foundation level 0.   Trying to cut and paste in place, I get this message.  And no layers are locked.

I think Piers need a Foundation Wall ( Containing Object?) and it be set to use the Grade Beams and Piers type......unless you draw your Own Piers with P-Solids?

 

But not an error message I have seen before..... in the past I have drawn my own as the Grade Beam Default foundation was too limiting.

I've got piers elsewhere on the plan with no issue.  They are under the deck at rear.  They are on their own layer, and the ones under the front porch are on their own separate layer.

You have slabs as piers under the deck. They may be placed anywhere.

 

You have used piers under the wall, which behave differently. 

 

Why not use slabs there too?

It is the issue I said above, the Foundation Piers need a ground beam or foundation wall then you can copy and paste (hold position) to level 0....but it doesn't look right , I'm not actually sure how you added Piers to a framed Walled like that....

 

so better to delete them and drawn your own like under the deck.... or copy and paste them from the deck...

I had done the front piers as elements of a foundation wall.  I changed them to slabs and all is well.
