Manually draw floor and ceiling trusses or automatically generate joists, specifying joist size, type, and direction.
The importance of floor framing is a function of your structural platform settings. A platform's height is not only important for framing members it can also impact your elevations. Learn about the various floor framing techniques and best practices in this session.
Joist Direction Lines specify joist direction, and Bearing Lines define the boundaries for joist direction. Bearing lines also specify where joists are cut, as can walls and beams.
Draw posts and beams manually, set their material and size properties and then copy them on any desired module.
Floor and ceiling trusses can be used instead of joists to frame platforms
You can designate walls and beams as bearing to cut the joists that pass over them, and you can use bearing walls to automatically generate supporting foundation walls below them.
You can customize the floor framing for your structure using manual framing and editing tools.
Joist direction lines define the direction in which joists run in a floor or ceiling platform and can only be drawn in floor plan view.
Instead of bearing on the foundation wall, create a floor that hangs on a ledger inside of the foundation walls.
A room's default floor structure and finish definitions are determined by its Room Type.
