Structure Below Ground Level

Why does the integration/support of my building in the ground below the ground level not work?


In order to consider the support of the structure in the soil correctly, it is necessary to excavate the soil accordingly or to provide the solid with a corresponding opening.

  • To model the excavation, the solids of the "Intersection" or "Hole" type are suitable for cutting the excavation geometry into the soil solid.
  • As an alternative, you can model the excavation manually by modifying the boundary surfaces of the soil solids. When using a soil massif, select the "Soil Solid" type.
