Version 1.6.0 - 05.28.2020
- Added a footing concrete layer in the Global Settings under the "Layers" tab.
- Fixed a bug for metric templates with the strip footing tool and the polyline stemwall tool.



Note, that if you want the footing concrete layer to remain the same as the rest of the foundation (ie. stemwall) you can always assign it to the same layer name: "fnd_conc"

Also note, that any and all of these layer names are user configurable, the names shown are just default names I have assigned, the user can utilized their own naming convention that suites their workflow.

After giving this suggestion some additional thought:



I think I will introduce two additional parameters for stemwall foundations which will make them more applicable for use as retaining walls in foundation design.

The two parameters will be:

Ftg. Bar Development:  None, Hook, Full Ext., Full Int.
Ftg. Offset: 0.0 in (default)

Currently footings are drawn symmetrically with respect to the foundation wall, this will enable the user to offset the footing in or out (+/-).

When the foundation segment lengths in a polyline stemwall foundation are too short this is what you get (notice the anchor bolt placement):



I'm working up some additional logic to properly deal with anchor bolt placement with short segment lengths.

Version 1.6.5 - 02.09.2021
- Fixed a bug with anchor bolt placement for polyline stemwalls.
- Added an option for a zero depth footing for polyline stemwalls, which eliminates the footing for this foundation type.



By setting the depth of the footing to zero you can eliminate the footing from a polyline stemwall, so only the stemwall portion of the foundation is drawn.  This is per customer request.

Also the algorithm for anchor bolt placement for polyline stemwalls is greatly improved, however there can always be further improvements, any feedback is always appreciated.
