CMU Vertical Cell Reinforcement

Recommended Posts

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:

Are you asking about an automated way? How would the software know where to place them?

Yes, I would prefer an automated way - much like framing or trusses work (ever x feet/inches) and special considerations for corners of foundation. It would be a shame to have to drag and drop every single vertical cell reinforcement. But I would settle for any work around.

Look at the Multiple Copy tool...

You could use a wall definition to get you most of the way there.

This is a 3 layer wall.

The layer lines have the invisible line type.

The main (centre) layer is a framing layer.

After you build the framing you can select a stud and copy/drag/relocate...as required.

That would be cool if you could remove the plates and replace the studs with rebar.... ?

Yes almost.   Maybe we need to request a sub layer feature....

i thought you wanted the filled cores to display, not the rebar?

Either way, it can all be done within a single wall definition.

      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?

      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 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.
