Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the cavity mortar fill, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details (2015).
Now, before we tackle the insulation…and the ties with the insulation clips,…we'll just deal with this thing.…This is the below ground, sort of, mortar fill.…It acts as two things.…It sheds water that runs down the cavity,…to the outside face so that they can escape through…some weep holes in the brickwork,…and it prevents this piece of brickwork below ground…being undermined by any ground heave.…So, if this wasn't here, then the potential…for this brick to be pushed in toward the cavity…and then undermine that external brick, is heightened.…
So, we'll just deal with this.…We'll have to turn off a few bits and pieces…because we want to start it from the bottom,…and there's a lot of stuff in the way,…so we use the Outliner to deal with that.…So, here we are in chapter 03-04:…Adding the cavity mortar fill.…And, we'll start off by putting in some construction lines.…So, we'll use our friend, the tape measure tool.…And, come right down to the bottom…so it's the bottom edge you're looking at.…So you need to click on there, and just drag.…
