I have ideas, but how would you guys model this beast of a wall? Create a family using forms? Which form if so?

Also, is using a 'concrete beam' still the best (and only?) option to place a continuous foundation key below the wall footing?

Create an in-place, category "Wall" OR create a MASS then apply "Wall By Face"

I have been playing around with both methods mentioned above.

One thing that stinks is that after creating the wall by these methods, it will not allow me to add a foundation/bearing footing even though it's listed as a wall.

I assume this means that I have to mass the bearing footing and footing key as well as the wall. Bummer. Takes the intelligence right out of the components.

Do a normal curved wall.   Add your foundation and add a wall sweep to give yo the slope.   Add another sweep for the fdn key.

Thanks WWHub. I was actually playing around with that idea as you posted. It works well.

For the taper is it possible to have it instance based where the height, width, etc. can be adjusted in the Properties box? (See attached jpg) or do I just need to create different size sweeps for different wall heights and conditions?

Thanks so much.

You could create a profile that could be (type based) adjustable and use that in your sweep.

 

If you assign these to a sweep, each profile would have to be in a new wall sweep type.... In other words - you create the new type in the project browser - families then add a new sweep type with that profile type.
