Roof sheathing

Recommended Posts

I'm confused. Just now switching over to X8 as I was afraid there would be differences from X7, or at least perceived differences which would cause me trouble.

Here is one.

In X7 Roof Plane Specifications / Options / Roof Layers / sheathing is listed. If I click on a roof plane and choose materials, sheathing is listed.

 

In X8 it appears Roof Layers has moved from Options to Structure, but where is sheathing, and why isn't it  listed in Roof Plan Specifications / materials?

It is part of the surface tab. Structure is framing and surface is everything on the framing.

OK......part of surface tab.  Why is it not listed under materials within the Roof Plan Specifications?

I assume you are talking about the roof plane specifications? I believe since we are setting materials in the surface and structure there would not really be a need to duplicate. It is handled like walls are when we define them. Always ways to change it but best way is through those dbxs.
