Creating a Strip Footing

With the strip footing command, strip footings are created between the columns in accordance with the concrete design. In some cases, cantilever foundation beams are created with the strip footing command.

Location of Strip Footing Command

You can access it from the Concrete tab in the ribbon menu, under the title of Foundation.

Strip footings can be connected from column to column or can be defined without a column.
