Manual Foundation Not displaying in Elevation view

Recommended Posts

CT Guru's.

 

I guess I just don't get CA Foundation tool so I have elected to create my own manually. Frankly, I need to be able to do this anyway as I have a Structural Engineer wanting me to do some CAD layouts for him. So my question is two fold.

 

1) my current plan has a Foundation level but I have all default "Footings" unchecked. You can't delete them so I can only think to hide them and do my own.

2) If I were creating just a Foundation plan and not a model, I would then need to Create the foundation on level 1

 

Okay, Blank Sheet.

  • Created my corner footings from a polyline box with no footings checked in the DBX.. Layer is "FOUNDATION, FOOTINGS")
  • Material is Concrete and fill is Concrete so they look like concrete in plan view 
  • Take an Elevation or Back Clip view and nothing displays (LAYER IS CHECKED - I GOT THAT MUCH)
  • Take 3D Floor Perspective view and all looks great. (WITH ONLY THE Layer "FOUNDATION, FOOTINGS" CHECKED)

What am I doing wrong that the Elevation view are blank.

Learn to use the foundation tools given to you by chief, they work good for me. Then it will work for you

Perry,

 

You are absolutely right (LEARN) is the key word. I am learning but there is much to be done in the process of learning all the processes with CA. You, and this community, are an invaluable resource and one I do not take lightly. Many have said there is no single way to do things in CA so I am appealing to all for input.

 

Thanks again,

Try the 'All On' Layer just in case, and go up/down a floor in your elevation view in case you're on the wrong floor.

 

 

Or...post the plan and someone will fix it instantly.

Okay Gurus! Here is the plan. Appreciate your help figuring out why the Footings won't display.

 

Added Plan file. Sorry

      I think I am missing something. I want the "Text Below Line" on my Elevation Camera Labels/callouts to show the sheet number. And make this the default. Does any one know how?

      Hello I'm having an issue w/ my elevation. How do you get it to update automatically what layout page it is on?

      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.

      Good day, all of you.
      Need your kind attention to finalize a front elevation of a house. The plan is attached Aamir77_gutted_MHD_Rev1.zip to the post. Please confer me a little segment of your precious time. I have been up to 3 types of front elevation which are also attached herewith as pictures. Thanks in advance.
