Some one just asked me if it will be PST or PDT.  It will be 3:00 California time when my Iphone says 3:00.  

 

I get it..... sometimes we cannot be clear enough.  

 

I guess it would be PDT .....

3:00 pm PDT means 6:00 pm east coast EDT

3:00 pm PST means 7:00 pm east coast EDT

 

But we know you really meant PDT ;)

Thanks to all that attended and a big thanks to Glenn for presenting and to Steve for the wall  solution I was after.

 

Here is the vid. 2 hours long,  probably tough to watch,  better to just listen for any highlights,  always better to be there.

An alternate for the block wall I came up with toward the end but my mike wasn't working or something. This is a bit easier to control and change.

From left to right sequence -

  1. fence-panels, no post, 0 newel width, steps to terrain-
  2. change wall type to CMU -include bottom rail, select some square molding and set height to desired bottom wall height
  3. change texture to block
  4. rotate texture
  5. 5 adjust newel spacing

Block doesn't like follow terrain using this though

I found it very interesting that we could not change the FOOTING MATERIAL.  

 

I suppose somewhere in the defaults it can be changed, but that would CHANGE ALL FOOTINGS.

 

So  if you wanted 2 DIFFERENT FOOTING MATERIALS for two different walls,  it is not possible.

Scott what would be the purpose that you want to change the footing material since all footings are concrete, except back here if they use superior walls then it is on pee gravel compacted with drain tile around that is the only way you can put them on

You cited a reason why you would want two materials,.

 

The reason I wanted to do it yesterday is we were trying to do a work around.....  it was Richard Morrison's idea ....  using the footing as CMU and having it go into the terrain..

yea in elevation view it would be good when I do my section details I have a detail with gravel in it for superior walls, not sure if you have those type of walls out west since you don't need frost walls :)

I was having a bit of a play with these types of walls.

You can come up with some interesting combinations.

Nice job Glenn....  are they walls or fences?

 

I am assuming wall since you have a footing.

I am assuming they do not follow terrain (or not a stepped fence)  (since it it a wall and not a fence)

I am assuming they were all edited in elevation

 

BTW,  I am really getting into the auto story pole.  I wish we could adjust the height of walls  (particularly retaining and site walls ) in plan view in lieu of editing in elevation.

 

In this project,  I needed to adjust the top and bottom of wall to a specific height relative to sea level.

AND AND AND ,  I wish we could adjust the height of the walls 2 ways

1-   relative to the first floor  (0.0)

2- relative to M.S.L.

Scott,

Yes, they are walls and your assumptions are correct.
