Hello all,

I am stumped at the moment and wondered if anyone has had a simailar circumstance. I am modeling a podium building (3 over 1) with a very complex below grade parking garage. What is driving the complexity is that 1) the grades on the site are steep (up to 10' of fall for about 150') and 2) the city requires the floor elevations to be within a specific range of the exterior grade. Because of this we have instances where the finish grade is below the exterior grade. We also have an entry ramp along on exterior wall. The building is clad in masonry and we need to provide brick ledges. Let's focus on the ramp....

The Dilimma: Typically I would model the brick ledge as a slab edge - no problem. However, in the case of the ramp, the slab is far below the grade and is sloping. I need brick ledges that step with the exterior grade. So that strategy will not work here. I created a wall reveal at the top of foundation wall to simulate a brick ledge and edited the wall profile to extend down to meet the ledge. Works great in section and 3D, can tag with spot elevations, and can step as needed. However these will not show up in a slab plan since they are attached to walls.

Can anyone offer guidence on a work around? Maybe a different way to document the brick ledge heights and lengths??

Maybe use a filter for the slab plan to turn off above grade exterior walls and only leave below grade walls, thus showing the brick ledge/wall reveal?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Why a wall reveal?  Why not just a stepped foundation wall.  The top of the stepped wall can be tagged in plan and elevations  - see attached.  The wall was stepped by using a wall sketch but you could also use seperate wall sections each with a different top/bottom.
