Hi all - new here! wanna get going...I read once, not sure where, that ICF wall type was added in v12! I've got v14 and it's screwing up since install of Win10. Lots to iron out but now no support - Upgrade I guess BUT: How can I select, find - is there- an ICF foundation wall type? Cheers sah

It should be there, .. I checked my 2014 (see attached) and there's on ICF Wall Type (to start you off, I guess)

 

If you don't have it, .. you can create one, ..

 

Rigid Insulation .. Concrete .. Rigid Insulation, .. thickness of Rigid to suit the Manufacturer (they do vary) and thickness of concrete as is available (8", 10", .. ).

.. invariably, someone will have a simpler solution.

NONE of my walls are standard. I created each one independently (including the ICF ones),- that way I know they show what I want to show, and the pens are defined and print as I want them. If you use a profile, then you can even make a brick ledge taper top to suit.

Thank you guys  :P

Douglas, my wall type selection does not include the ICF models (conc core) ...

 

and to Keith, I think it is best now to generate them as need be - however, I'm one of those 10 who doesn't do binary well :)

Just ordered my upgrade to 2016 - here's hoping!

 

I just got off the table where I have been (and will continue to..) drawing for 38 years. It seems no-one else around here does it by hand any more - a lost art for sure...

I'll have to stop by and visit Home Hardware - one of my fav's

 

As I'm new to this site and program, I'll be watching keenly - thanks!

Easy to make a custom wall, lots of material options available 

 

Tricky part is what you make bearing for dimensions and stacking etc

Sorry.

 

Didn't get to reply earlier. The taper top doesn't actually do anything in the 3D model, so you don't actually need to do anything.

 

The brick ledge is just created with a profile. Just create a material at the right height and add a profile to it ... For example: Create a profile exactly the size of the brick ledge, then add a material (I used Parging as you can see) to the wall definition exactly the same size as the profile, then add the profile to that part of the definition.
