Wall does not go down and meet Foundations HD Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Have a look at red circle on photo.

My exterior walls are not meeting the foundations.

What have I set incorrectly.

Many Thanks Robynpost-620-0-99174700-1413583543_thumb.png

Probably "Foundation Defaults" or "Floor One Defaults" or both. You are right to assume you have some incorrect settings (that is THE reason 99.99% of the time). Find and correct those settings and then all will be well. Make sure you well understand what all the settings do, what they are for and where they are (time well spent).

strange looks like the Rim joist or entire floor structure is missing ......the display Options for Floors/Framing etc are on are they?

 

also check this 

 

Go to the floor level 1.
Open Default Settings...Floor.
Structure tab...Floor Structure (L).
Move the arrow to what should be your framing layer is it set to something like 11 7/8" thick not 0" or just the subfloor layer eg 3/4" ie do You have a Sheet of Plywood assigned to this layer and the subfloor layer above?. This is no good - it needs to be a Framing Material like Fir Framing or CA-B Pressure treated Lumber, otherwise Chief can't build framing.

One other thought and something to check is that the main layer of your exterior walls is defined correctly ie not as a Gap Material. Edit this material to make it Framing, and the walls will build down to the foundation.
