Foundation-Slab on Grade with brick ledge

Recommended Posts

I’m new to chief architect and like what I see so far. I having issues with creating the foundation for a slab on grade with a brick ledge. I currently use AutoCAD but may switch to CA if possible. Can anyone share how they would create this foundation. I attached a foundation plan and some typical details. Thanks for your time.

Set it all up in the default foundation settings, and the wall above that contains the brick and Chief will handle most of the rest for you.

Thanks Joey, 

 

I can't figure out how to make the ledge.  For this instance, I would like a 1.5" x 1.5" ledge.  

 

I have the X9 trial version but will be purchasing if I can figure out this foundation.  Below is a snipit of the settings I have so far but as you can see the ledge is not there.

Hint...

In Wall Types, define the wall and set your brick ledge height there.

Maybe start by getting X12.

I don't remember if X9 had auto ledge, but X12 does. If you put brick or stone on the exterior wall, Chief will add the ledge per the set up.

Thanks for the reply guys.  I'm going to download the x12 Premier and see if I can get it. Thanks for the help so far.  Much appreciated.
