Garage Monolithic Slab - how to adjust height of footer increase depth


Recommended Posts

I am trying to model monolithic floor/foundation with depth of the footers (bottom of foundation) to be 30" deep.  I have spent hours adjusting all the settings in Structure for the Garage "room" both on floor Level 1 and Level 0 and end up creating everything except what I need.  Also when I do a cross section view, I cannot create a dimension to define the depth... it always looks to be about 12".  Getting very frustrated.  How do I do what should be a fairly simple thing?  Thanks for any help.

This has been a major PITA for me forever...I have spent days trying to get a deeper foundation wall with a monolithic slab...I stumbled into this solution though...I changed 3 walls of your foundation to illustrate my solution...I left the rest for you to play with...all I did was change your slab footing in the foundation dbx to the values you will see in my hack...good luck...

 

I see that Eric has added a video showing the methodology to do this...Thanks Eric
