This is definitely a way to create a stepped footing... But, if you want to actually utilize the analytical model built into a Revit Structural Wall Footing (you know, getting the I in BIM - Information!) then here is another method.  By the speed in which I created the second set of stepped footings you can decide which is the best one:

Topics covered:

  • Creating a foundation wall.
  • Splitting the wall.
  • Using parameters to create ACTUAL footings...
