    Brick Ledge Plan

    How would I do this? Especially when I have openings in my slab, and basement walls underneath.

    I thought I could just use my slab edges, but it's not working out. Any ideas other than *gasp* just using linework? Not very Revit like.

    What's the problems you are having with slab edges?

    You can place a slab edge then modify its length then add another one and join the ends. You have make different slap edge types, but it should work for what it looks like you are trying to accomplish.

      It's just not looking right. And I don't have slab edges where the foundation sits on the basement walls, so that would need to be line work I guess.

      I was thinking there was an easier way, but I'll need to work on it a bit more. It's Monday and I don't feel like being here. :laugh:

        You could also play with in place voids... I use voids for my depressed slad areas, maybe you could use them for cutting back your slab where its needed.

          Actually, that may be way easier next time. I created my slab edges to include the brick ledge. When doing it this way, the actual slab is about 5.5" away from the exterior walls, the slab edge making up the difference. It seemed to work great, but now I'm thinking a simple in place void would be easier in the long run. That way I don't have different types of slab edges for different brick ledge widths.

          Oh well, you live a learn. I may actually make the change to this project and see how it works.

            In your place i would draw model lines (you can draw short ones and it will create short slab edge..) and place my created slab edge family on it, then i could join it or whateva, foreva. Thats how actually i did my foundation

              Why not just place the slab edges on ......well............the slabs edge? What benefit does drawing model lines give me?

              Just curious, I may learn something here. lol

                Dont use Model Lines. Way more trouble than its worth. Slab Edges with the sketch of the slab edited to reflect the ins and outs of the Bridge Ledge. Dont think of "Lines" as the way around it, the moment you cant figure out how to do something. Its generally never the right answer.

                  That's how I have it now, if I understand you correctly. It's more trouble than it's worth. I'm thinking Alex's method of drawing the slab, then using an in place void would be the easiest and cleanest way. Unfortunately, I'm back on Autocrap for a few hours today. Did I mention I hate this program now?? :laugh:

                    I must be failing to understand, or failing to communicate, what i mean by using the slab edges for it. The way im thinking of would take a matter of minutes to do the entire plan...
