    Footing not joining properly

    I modeled a foundation wall with variouse footing depths and sizes. The building foot print steps several times around the perimeter. When I finished modeling, it looked really sloppy because it didn't want to join cleanly because of different sizes and depths. I had overlap on the end of the footing walls, which was not what I wanted. Is there a way to adjust the footing appearance?

    Rather than try to use loadable families, that as you see will not play so well together in certain conditions, just use "in-situ" components.
    Model them in place, you can create multiple extrusions in the one "in-place" model with differring heights and shapes (and even materials if you wish)
    Once you finish the in place model for multiple footings that interact, revit will work out how to join them for you...it works really nicely for stepped foundations like this

    Also with wall footings being buggy like this, you can model a void extrusion in-place and cut the offending ends off.
