I am working on a project for a homeowner and need to know how to build/design a woodframe structure on concrete blocks and pads. Can someone please tell me how? I have the structure built in Revit Architecture 2011.


Thank you.

ok, automatic wall framing is still a little while away but you can check out the wood framing tool in the Revit extensions, just play with it until you get results close enough to what you want (don't get your hopes high though as this tool is not finished)

what I would do is create your wall type in Revit as well as 2 profiles for the different foundations you need. from the Structural tab in Revit, select the Wall Foundation tool and simply select your walls.

Alternatively you can create a Stacked wall in Revit, the bottom part will be your blockwork and the top will be the stud framing wall, there are many tutorials out there, but let us know if you get stuck

I have done several hillside foundations in Revit with wood frame above. Just build walls, from Masonry, and try to keep to masonry dimensions. which are even, even + 8" and odd +4". make the wall heights masonry as well. detailing the connection of masonry to wood floor should be studied prior to establishing floor levels.
