Removing joists on slab foundation

Recommended Posts

The problem I am having is when i build the framing on my slab it try's to add joists to the ground level of the building. what i would like to achieve is this. with the slab as the floor and the door on the ground and not in the air.slab.thumb.png.865af254deecf82bce0462db8b52b059.png

What software do you have? 

 

sounds like you have not set level one's floor structure to concrete ( slab) or set the foundation level to a Monolithic Slab ?

 

And the F1 Key is your best friend  while in Chief......

Some of us that know how to help you (like me) are going to ask that you first really try to solve this yourself.

 

You need to know about Chief's room definition dialog, in which you specify floor structure.  You also need to know about Chief's foundation builds in which you can specify and build the monolithic slab with any kind thickened edge details you need.

 

Have you watched the available training videos about these topics, easily found on the Chief website?  Have you reviewed the help files in the program for information about these topics?

You could actually use "Walls with Footings" but you would need to specify the Floor Structure as a Concrete Slab.  I prefer this method because it allows me to control the Stem Wall height and Footing as separate dimensions, etc.
