I am a fairly new user to Chief, but I have graphic design and 3D experience in other applications that seem to parlay well in Chief.
I am using Version X12.
I have been working on several projects and all of them have the floor joists sitting on a framed wall making the top of the joist even with the green plate.
To illustrate my end goal, I created what I am trying to do in my 'visual' 3D app, so it is not to scale or anything, but I am having a tough time making this happen in CA.
I get close with the the offset footing and stem wall, but I cannot figure out how to add the framing on the 7" side of the footing?
I also noticed there is an error where when you add a framed footing, it will show up like a solid piece of lumber until you rebuild the framing, and then it will look correct like it does in my 3D mockup.
Has anyone created a conditioned crawl like this, with the framing on the footing? I see in architectural guides that they just normally pour an L shaped stem wall and rest the joists on that L shelf, but there is something with the R factor and by adding the framed wall and then the foam it makes this other method better, or so I have been told.
Thank you for any suggestions. My current solution is just to draw out a normal footing and then just have the cad detail show what it really should be.
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?
