In detailed edit, one can assign polygons to wall components.  Make the polygon to resemble the elevation and assign to the wall component.  Getting into custom rendering will certainly require a trial and error adjustment.

As you have guessed, you cannot do this in the wizard.  So, in the wizard, create the u/g wall.  Then in detailed mode, set the u/g wall height to 5'.  Then create new exterior walls (copying upper walls) and set their height to 4' with their Z value at 5' -- one for each side of the basement as appropriate, linked to the appropriate vertex.

It sounds complicated but is fairly straight forward when you get going.

Bonne chance,

I need to model a wall that is partially below grade.  My basement is only about 4' below grade & using the wizard so far I cant figure out a way to represent this.  What is the easiest way to go about this?  I am trying to stay in the wizard as long as possible.
