    Reinforced Area for wall. Show hook in footing below?

    I've got a Reinforced Area for my conc foundation wall. I want to show the rebar for this area hooking in the footer below the wall. When I extended the Reinforced Area down into the footer, the hook moved down into the footer. Great!

    But then I realized that the horizontal rebar (Major) from the Reinforced Area is also now in the footer. Is it possible to get the hook to show in the footer WITHOUT also showing the horizontal rebar in the footer?

    TIA!

    I don't have too much experience with modeling the reinforcement, but instead of using the Area tool, I would try using the Rebar tool and model two separate elements (first parallel to cover, and second perpendicular to cover). This way, you can control each direction independently.

      That's what I tried first. But then horizontal rebar that should go through the entire wall, is in multiple pieces and doesn't line up properly either.

        I found a way around this. But this seems like an area where Autodesk could spend some time improving the reinforcement functions.

        I selected the "Reinforcement Area" and copied to the clipboard. Then I pasted it into the same location. Then in the section view, I sleected one, turned off the major (horizontal) rebars and let the area extend down into the footer. Then I selected the OTHER one and turned off the MINOR (vertical) rebars and brought the area boundary back up to the top of the footer. I had to adjust the "cover" of the major Area by a half inch.

        Here's the result.
