Centering Walls On Footings

Recommended Posts

Hi, new to X7. I set my wall defaults to "center footing on main layer" but it is aligning it on outside?

Are you wanting a brick ledge on the outside?

Thanks for the help. Curt yes I would like one at times how would I detail that? Larry does it have to do with something in this setting?

Double click a wall, go to wall types and select your wall, go to define and you'll see the wall definition dbx, Your main layers are set up there.

 

Better yet what are trying to do? What do you want it to look/build like?

Got is thanks! My first model and I think I confused myself by trying to create my foundation using the wall specs in the first floor that works differently than the foundation floor using the floor tool "build foundation"....I was not noticing my outer clading in flush to the outer footing where it should be. If I wanted to change the layers of the wall to add say a brick layer I guess I add that layer to my wall.

 

I take it is best to build foundations on the foundation floor and not try and build them on the first floor using wall specs?
