Version 1.8.3 - 03.10.2022
- Enabled the installation of windows and doors for polyline stemwall openings.
- Enabled lumber and pressure treated lumber textures in the Materials tab of the Global Settings.
- Added a door and window opening tool to the Stemwall Opening Toolbar.
- Animation option added to the General tab of the Global Settings.











This is a fairly substantial upgrade to the foundation plugin.  Note that windows and doors can only be installed into "polyline" stemwalls, this new feature does not work with the legacy stemwall tool.

I've been giving the Basement Entrance some more thought and I've come up with the following parameters for this option:

1.) Entrance Direction: Left, Right or Center
2.) Stemwall Height
3.) Stemwall Thickness
4.) Footing Width
5.) Footing Depth

6.) Landing Width
7.) Landing Depth
8.) Slab Thickness

9.)  No. of Steps
10.) Riser Height
11.) Tread Depth
12.) Tread Overhang
13.) Nosing Radius (Typically 1/2")

Let me know if I am missing anything.

Version 1.8.4 - 03.16.2022
- Enabled entry stairs for polyline stemwall openings: Left, Right and Center.







Note: I did not enable the radius for the nosing on the treads but I think this additional feature or lack thereof is not a major issue since it is purely cosmetic in my opinion.  If there is enough additional demand for it I will look into it further.

I also have not added any option for rebar into this concrete sub-assembly.  Again, I will address that further if there is additional interest or requests for it.

Version 1.8.5 - 03.20.2022
- Fixed a bug with windows and doors when a polyline stemwall is in a RIGHT direction/configuration.
- Added a "TRIAL" licensing notice at SketchUp startup to alert users to activate their license/serial numbers if running in trial mode.

Getting a little closer, now I just need to update the menus with all the new parameters:

So I drew this with the column and new grade beam module:



My oldest son then asked me, "What is it?"

My answer was, "I don't know, it's whatever you want it to be."
