Automatic Rebuild Foundation generating walls under cantilever

Recommended Posts

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.1483202024_2019-04-3011_27_55-Window.thumb.png.debddf4e5db047d8afa8cfd240a454e4.png

What about using the "Box Window" tool and raising the floor by 1/16" of an inch?

That is a quick fix, but the problem with the Box Window is that it still incorporates living area and you can't split the room. Too little control overall. Also makes it more difficult to put a lower roof on the cantilever. Thanks for the suggestion though!

This can work but the balcony needs to be drawn on level 2 and pulled down in elevation and the Room Floor height reset to match level 1 or whatever height  eg 18" for a window seat.  it doesn't work if you have the balconcy on level 1 as you noticed. It's not perfect but may get you by depending on Views....Below I added a 2nd level 1 1/2" high and pulled the walls down as needed.

I do the floor and do the foundation, uncheck <automatically rebuilt foundation> then cut the part of the wall that needs to be cantilevered and pull the wall pass foundation.

Yeah, that is how I'm currently doing it, and it seems to be the most efficient way. I just assumed there must be a way to mark it as a cantilever and not have the auto-foundation fill it in but I couldn't find anything.

Next year when a $600 version update comes out maybe they will add cantilever marking :-) can't have everything in one version release.

      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?

      Is there a way to add pre Mfg. brick to outside of the foundation above grade that does not affect the porches etc or parts you do not want it?

      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?

      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.
