Can you modify a Monolithic Slab

Recommended Posts

I need to see if there is a way to modify a monolithic slab.  In this case I want to modify the vertical leg/foundation/footing.  I began working in Architecture in 1978, and moved to Cad in the early 90's.  I've designed and built many buildings using CAD (Various applications, but predominantly AutoCAD).  In AutoCAD Architecture I was able to give the thickness of the slab, dimension of the chamfer from the slab to the vertical leg, the vertical leg height and thickness.  I have not been able to discover a way to modify these settings in 2019 HD Pro,  Is there something I am missing?  Any help would be appreciated.  I've modified the default settings (in every way I could find, and yes.... one at a time) for both the monolithic slab and the foundations.

I see you said Pro, but answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

The Home Designer products are limited in what you can change.

 

Chief Architect has more options.

Eric, that is a spread footing & stem wall.  I'm talking about a monolithic slab, which is basically a concrete slab with thickened edges for a footing.  In most places (such as where I am from), these are usually only used in commercial structures.  However, Oklahoma has predominantly patio homes (on monolithic slabs).

I understand the differences. The image I posted above was intended to show the options available in Chief that are missing from Home Designer.

 

Here (in Chief) I've increased the height of the vertical leg to 24". Something you have no control over.
