I am placing foundations by selecting walls and they are not continuous around inside and outside corners and cannot be joined?  why is this happening and what to do.  also the view templates cannot see the foundation cuts properly at this level?

Not sure what you are asking because REVIT's terms are a little confusing here.  Are you using the wall command to place foundation walls or are you using the structural foundateion "wall"?  The structural tab places a wall footing - not a foundation wall.

 

VIEW TEMPLATES are a powerful tool in REVIT so learn to use them.  The stock view templates are  fully adjustable but you can also create new ones.  Do that and set the view range for what you require.

I have some troubles with foundations as well. I use Revit Structure 2009 and I am drawing a Tilt-up Building. I drew each panel Individually with a 3/4" gap between them. I place a foundation using the Wall Option and where I have openings that go all the way down the Strip footing splits it self and it places a footing under the panel and also under the top of my opening. IS there a way to deal with this? 

 Also how can I change the profile of  my footing? if I do a solid extrusion, the line type come in differently.

 Thank you kindly,

Vanrevit

Wall foundations are a system family and as such, I don't believe you can modify their profile except in the x-y direction.

 

You could do your foundations as an in-place family, category foundation, solid sweep and use the profile you need.

 

I don't understand why you do tilt-up walls as seperate in-place families!  That just seems to be crazy for me.  We don't do that with brick or block.  Titlt up panels are no different than that.

 

You can do tilt-up as a continuous wall with a surface pattern that shows your joint locations just like we do with block.  Where you have special narrow panels, you can split your wall segments to restart your pattern and you can control the ends of the "wal" with the "do not join" option.   

 

If you do the above, you will not get the idividual wall fottings.

I think he drew walls and disallowed join and put a gap inbetween them all.
