    Changing the 2nd Floor Joist Direction in Just One Room or Wing?

    Thanks, Kbird1, I will study up on bearing lines I don't believe I've ever encountered the need. And thank you, rgradner, I will upgrade to 12 asap.
  2. Is it possible after or as auto floor framing is activated to change the joist direction in just one room? It seems as though CA wants all joists to go in one direction throughout a home design structure even when it results in very long spans that would not customarily be framed that way in new or old construction.

    Girder, Block Pier, & Brick Veneer Crawlspace Foundation Walls

    Thank you so much, Mick, It certainly seems like you the solved the problem but I'm totally clueless as to how? One thing I noticed was that if I expand the foundation room you created or extend out one wall, the block don't come along for the ride. Am I missing something, do I need to rebuild the floor framing or what?

    Girder, Block Pier, & Brick Veneer Crawlspace Foundation Walls

    Thank you my 757 Bro! OK, I opened up your plan and get what you did. I have never known or used Wall Niche Specification before, but good to know for sure. In your suggestion the niches are essentially subtractions of block from a block/brick wall to create piers by omission. If the bond of the block can be changed to be a simple grid, the verisimilitude would be better but still a bit of custom work to accomplish if I may so petty as to critique.

    Thanks mtldesigns and GeneDavis I think you both understand what I am needing and have probably solved my problem. I’ll start experimenting in the morning. Thanks again!

    Yes, for the sake of simplicity for concrete subs, the piers and brick skirt rest on a continuous 20" x 8" footing.
  7. Common practice in Tidewater VA (Hampton Roads, 757) for crawlspace foundations has been 8x16 CMU Piers approximately 6' on center supporting 6x6 Treated Girders with continuous Brick Veneer Skirt Wall that is flush with the exterior frame walls -- the floor joists cantilever the short distance from their girder bearing to rim joists to be flush with the veneer and support the exterior walls. I guess in the parlance of CA these are Stem walls. But after exhausting all the Online Help Foundation Videos I haven't been able to arrive at an automated method that will produce this type of foundation wall. In the past, I have just built these in CA plan piece by piece, object by object but that is a huge hassle. Anyone have any suggestions? If so, thank you for your consideration! Screenshot attached is view from most recent plan for an addition, code here will no longer allow solid 6x6 girder so this shows a triple built up 2x8s.

    Can't Rotate Wall Section on Layout

    Well alrighty then, Kbird1, thank you, looks like you have successfully rotated an elevation but i'm not quite sure what you mean by: "send a CS or Elevation to a CAD Detail." I'm going to see if a pure Elevation from outside the structure without text will rotate, it doesn't so your approach sending to a CAD Detail must be the way to go.

    Surely you understand what I am saying, solver? Honestly, I felt as if anyone who had ever taken a plan to layout would understand. Plus, I felt sharing my work content could just extract unwanted, irrelevant, tangential critiques. But if I have to, I’ll get up and do it, yet as I think it through, how does one show what is not there, the little triangle thingy? Screen shots I guess, so I’ll have to learn how to do frigging screen shots!

    Not to this trade it wouldn’t be. Seriously, we trades are not that stupid. If one can understand the whole wall section concept, this would be a piece of cake comparatively. One can just rotate the paper plan if ones viewpoint is challenged.

    The small triangle is what I meant by a “handle” in my first post, there ain’t none.

    No, Chopsaw, I'm sorry I probably did not explain my problem adequately. It's a Cross Section/Elevation Entire Plan/View or Current Screen (makes no difference) sent to a Layout Page in Scale or Fit to Page (makes no difference). The need is a desire to have several Cross Section/Elevations on the same layout page and rotating will allow more space on the page for other cross sections. Has nothing to do with rotating a wall or object or anything within the plan, a Wall Section, to be sent to Layout. If there is not a simple quick way to do this, it seems like a pretty significant oversight, would be the second time within a week I have stumped Technical Support.
