Answer

In the Advance Concrete program, there are two methods of creating the cantilever walls. One of the methods is to create a beam section having the geometry and the dimensions of the cantilever wall.How do we create a cantilever wall  in Advance Concrete?

In order to create the new beam section we must use the cantilever wall's contour created with the AutoCAD® command polyline, and the Description of the model geometry option, which can be found on Advance Project Settings toolbar.
