End plate connection of steel beam to concrete wall

I am importing a Revit model into ASD steel and I have some locations in the basement where the steel will be supported by the concrete walls.  How do I do this?

Thanks.

 

I guess I will proceed with the idea of the fake steel columns in the concrete walls so I can use the column/beam macros.

1) You can create User defined section for your walls

or

2) Simulate walls with a concrete"plate".

or

3)Make drawings and fake the wall with Autocad lines in Layout.

or

3) If you don't need details, make the model in Revit and export only the steel structure to ASD

@ jorgeluisgdeaca Truly it might be helpful but I'd rather to suggest any if I knew what kind of support it would be.

haydenwse Do you have any sample ?

Here is a screen shot of some of the connections I need to detail.  One thought that I had was that I can put a "dummy" W column with the flange flush to the concrete that would form the base for the ASD macros.  After I export to ASD I can select all of the dummy columns and hide or delete. 

 

is there an easier way?

It's the same situation that shows the video, concrete can't be detailed into ASD steel so you need to simulate it as a "x section"
