Version 1.3.9d - 09.02.2019
- Enabled rebar for stemwall steps (bottom step and double step).





Rebar was a bit a of a pain especially the double step, the rest of the advanced options should be relatively simple comparatively.

Version 1.3.9c - 09.01.2019
- Enabled rebar for stemwall steps (top step only).
- Added an option for additional horizontal and vertical bars in the draw and edit menus for stemwall steps.



I rolled the revision a little early since I noticed there was a bug in the edit function for stemwall steps.  If you've recently installed 1.3.9b, I would highly recommend updating to this latest version.

I just need to work out the rebar for the other two step configurations and then rebar is complete.

I will then attack anchor bolts next, then the drain pipe and then the FPSF insulation.  I will probably leave the vents disabled for now or at least until someone gives me more feedback on how they would like to see this configured.

The nice thing with the rebar is that you still have the option to install top and/or bottom bar with or without the horizontal bar, so lots of design permutations.

Version 1.3.9b - 08.31.2019
- Added an option for vertical bars in the draw and edit menus for polyline stemwall foundations.



View model here:

The top of the vertical rebar is 3" below the top of the stemwall and extends into the footing by half the footing depth.

These various foundation assemblies are starting to rival the wall and truss plugins assemblies in complexity and details, exciting stuff.

I still need to work on a module that will allow for brick ledges on stemwalls as well as another module for adding in windows and doors.  A CMU option would also be nice.  No matter how hard I work on this stuff it always seems like there is more, its a moving target I guess.

Nathan,
I hope you daughter's recovery is going well and she is keeping her spirits up. I'm new to the Medeek Forum and a new user of the Medeek BIM tools. I'm in the process of modeling my house in SKetchup 2017 make (I'm not a professional contractor or designer, just a home owner having some fun with Sketchup. I would like to know if the Medeek Foundation plug-in can do a stepped foundation where the foundation floor is level and the foundation walls are stepped based on grade of lot (walk out basement) I've attached a pic of what I would like to be able to replicate. I've noticed you are working on stepped foundations for crawl space type foundations but I did not see a stepped foundation for a walkout basement type of foundation. It may be that I'm just not familiar with how to combine the different types of foundations to create the type of foundation pictured in the attachment. Any help would be appreciated.


The upcoming step tool and polyline tool should be able to model this foundation.  My only problem might be the steps that are shown that terminate at the corners, I will need to think about these more.

Version 1.3.9 - 08.30.2019
- Added an option for additional horizontal bars in the draw and edit menus for polyline stemwall foundations.



Now we just need a few more options that will allow for vertical bars.
67
For the drain pipe with a step I'm looking at three possible ways to model the vertical transition:



The first model just follows the concrete step and makes a vertical jump.

The second model transitions with a couple of 45 degree elbows.

The third makes a more gradual transition with 16" of lead in before beginning the slope.

Which is the preferred way to model the drain pipe?
68
This is kind of what I have in mind for the rebar for a top step:



Note the typical 3" clearance for the very top bar.  Also note how the other top bar extends beyond the step by 12".  I can provide another parameter that allows the user to specify the length of this lap/extension.

I apologize that the dimensions are so small in the image, I should have increased the text size to make it more readable.

The bottom step and double step would be similar.  Thoughts or a different rebar configuration?

Version 1.3.8 - 08.29.2019
- Enabled the "Draw Stemwall Step" tool with the following step types: Top, Bottom, Double.
- Enabled the "Edit Stemwall Step" function/menu for stemwall steps.
- Added a "Hide Edges" option in the draw and edit menus for stemwall steps.



Currently the other  options are not yet enabled (anchor bolts, rebar, insulation, vents, and drain pipe).  I will work on these this weekend and try to wrap up the stemwall step module by Monday.

After that I will put together the Interior Bearing tool and then move back to the Truss Plugin development for a while.  However, if there are specific requests for features or bug fixes I will continue to address those in the next few weeks.

First look at some bottom steps with 24" steps:



Notice that the optional footing transition has been toggled on. 

Now I just need to wrap up the concrete for the double step and then I'll release a new version so that everyone can test out this new feature.
