Welcome to the documentation for the Medeek Foundation extension. Medeek Foundation is a SketchUp Extension that provides a simple interface for creating accurate 3D foundation and footing geometry within SketchUp. Sub-groups within foundations can be made persistent and subtractive by naming these groups or component instances to subtract1, subtract2, subtract3, etc Electrical components switches, outlets, service panels, lights can be installed into foundations with the Medeek Electrical extension.
Additional foundation types and footings are in the process of being added. Custom layers can be enabled in the global settings which allow concrete, rebar, insulation and wood framing to be placed on specific layers. Rebar or mesh, foundation vents and anchor bolts are optional elements. Perimeter insulation for FPSF is available for rectangular or polygon slab-on-grade and stemwall foundations.
Drain pipe placed at the footing level is an optional element for polyline stemwall foundations. The extension allows the user to create either an rectangular or irregular polygon shaped foundation plan. When the rectangular foundation is selected the outline is defined by simply selecting three points which form the bounding rectangle bldg. With the Medeek Foundation extension, you can accurately depict typical concrete foundations, footings and flatwork within SketchUp and better validate your architectural models.
The Medeek Foundation extension is in the process of being integrated with the Medeek Footing Calculator and will be able to provide engineering data for specific common footing types. For additional engineering tools and site criteria maps please visit our Resources page.
This document is intended for architects, engineers, designers and homeowners who are using SketchUp as their primary 3D design tool. The Medeek Foundation extension is a proprietary softare developed for use with the SketchUp 3D modeling program.
There are currently no limits to its use for both personal and commercial applications. The following items are typical design parameters than can be modified by the user to define the foundation geometry during the creation process Slab on Grade : Foundation Profile required This item allows two different thickened edge profiles.
Foundation Width required Width of building, defined by first two selected points, typically given in feet. Foundation Length required Length of building, defined by the second and third selection points, typically given in feet.
Footing Width required Width of the bottom of the thickened edge footing in inches. Slab Thickness required Thickness of the concrete slab in inches, typical values for residential construction is four to six inches. Foundation Depth required Sets the overall depth of the foundation from the top of the slab to the bottom of the footing in inches.
Garage Curb optional This option allows one to specify a garage curb that projects above the slab. Additional parameters and options are available for other foundation and footing types.
