cross bracing and/or shear walls

Recommended Posts

Does CA automatically draw corner let-in bracing for shear strength or shear walls?

 

If it is needed how does CA handle it?

Chief Architect doesn't provide any structural analysis.  That's up to the user to provide.  As Scott said, use Wall Types with plywood shear panels.
