Version 1.5.7b - 03.05.2020
- Updated the polyline stemwall draw tool to terminate (point selection) with the "End" key instead of the "Enter" key.
- Updated the strip footing draw tool to terminate (point selection) with the "End" key instead of the "Enter" key.

For now the point selection termination will be either the down arrow or the "End" key. Using the "Enter" key causes a conflict when the user is manual entering a dimension for a segment length (key in the dimension and then click enter). Until I can figure out how to resolve this conflict this will be the key assignment for terminating both polyline stemwall and strip footings.

Version 1.5.7c - 03.05.2020
- Added the "Enter" key method to the strip footing and polyline stemwall draw tools for point selection termination.

After a couple of tries I think I've finally got it right now. One should be able to use the Enter/Return key to terminate point selection as well as still use the down arrow (for users who are in the habit of using the down arrow now). I apologize on the back and forth on this fix, sometimes things just don't go as smoothly as planned.

Version 1.6.0 - 05.28.2020
- Added a footing concrete layer in the Global Settings under the "Layers" tab.
- Fixed a bug for metric templates with the strip footing tool and the polyline stemwall tool.



Note, that if you want the footing concrete layer to remain the same as the rest of the foundation (ie. stemwall) you can always assign it to the same layer name: "fnd_conc"

Also note, that any and all of these layer names are user configurable, the names shown are just default names I have assigned, the user can utilized their own naming convention that suites their workflow.

After giving this suggestion some additional thought:



I think I will introduce two additional parameters for stemwall foundations which will make them more applicable for use as retaining walls in foundation design.

The two parameters will be:

Ftg. Bar Development: None, Hook, Full Ext., Full Int.
Ftg. Offset: 0.0 in (default)

Currently footings are drawn symmetrically with respect to the foundation wall, this will enable the user to offset the footing in or out (+/-).

When the foundation segment lengths in a polyline stemwall foundation are too short this is what you get (notice the anchor bolt placement):



I'm working up some additional logic to properly deal with anchor bolt placement with short segment lengths.

Version 1.6.5 - 02.09.2021
- Fixed a bug with anchor bolt placement for polyline stemwalls.
- Added an option for a zero depth footing for polyline stemwalls, which eliminates the footing for this foundation type.



By setting the depth of the footing to zero you can eliminate the footing from a polyline stemwall, so only the stemwall portion of the foundation is drawn. This is per customer request.

Also the algorithm for anchor bolt placement for polyline stemwalls is greatly improved, however there can always be further improvements, any feedback is always appreciated.

First look at a hole cut using the new SUBTRACT keyword system:



Now I just need to set this up for the other various foundation types (ie. stemwall, stemwall steps, strip footings etc...)

Version 1.7.0 - 05.09.2021
- Added an option for subtractive geometry into the General tab of the Global Settings.
- Sub-groups within foundations and footings can be made persistent and "subtractive" by naming these groups to (subtract1, subtract2, subtract3, etc...)





Interestingly the code to make this happen was staring me in the face for months. I essentially took the "roof connections" complex roof module, changed up the logic slightly, simplified it, and arrived at this new feature/ability.

Notice that the subtractive groups cut through the rebar as well as the concrete. Certain other elements such as anchor bolts (groups within groups) are not removed. I may need to give this some additional consideration.

I guess we need to make this new feature available with the Truss plugin as well now.
