So, here is my question: When I make a wall (save it) and then edit it to be a foundation wall (save it) and then make them both “Step Walls”  then when I build the walls in 3D rendering they do not match up i.e., bottom of wall to the top of the foundation wall – there is a big gap between the two.  I do use a reference point. The only way I have been able to get the top and bottom of the two wall to match up is to edit each individual step in each of the step walls.  Is that how its done or is there an easier way?

I may be dense, but I'm not following the question. Can you post a couple of pictures illustrating the problem?

I second Keith. I guess the 1rst starting point is when you mention reference point, do you mean any reference point because only the circle one affects your assembly (stacks together).

Yes Ray, I do believe you have to edit the bottoms of the walls- but I could be wrong. For other folks here: Ray is a long time user so my guess is that he hasn't used that tool before.

If I understand you correctly, you might want to look into using the "Transition " function of walls. This allows you to specify where the transition occurs between the wood wall and the concrete wall. Place the bottom of the concrete wall where you want it and then use the "Align wall Tops" tool to bring all the wall tops in line and then finally use the "Transition" tab of the wall to adjust where the concrete ends and the wood wall begins. Keep in mind that your wall definition has to be set up correctly to enable this transition function.

My bad. I didn't realize this was posted under the 2014 forum. The " Transition " feature was introduced in version 2018.
